The milkmaid braid is easily done on others and also fuel proof for self stylists. The braid requires no special hair equipment just a brush , bobble and a few clips. To begin I brushed my hair throughly making sure it is easy to work with then spilt the hair in two and plait each section and fastening with a plastic bobble which I purchased in Boots. I then brought one plait over the top of my head and secured with a hair clip and repeated for the other side.
You can then take a few piece of hair out of the plait and ensure it doesn't fall down by using some hairspray. The hairstyle is so simple and can be a nice change from your typical hair do's.
Have you tried the milkmaid braid ?
