Apply smoothing cream.

Split one side into three sections.

These three sections will be for your first braid.


Start a three-strand braid.

Begin braiding.


Secure with a hair tie.

Once you’ve completed your braid, secure it with an elastic.


Repeat on the other side.

Halfway through this milkmaid braid tutorial! Create another three-strand braid on the other side. Once completed, secure with a hair tie.


Spritz with hair spray.

Spray your braids with a high shine hairspray like Bed Head by TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hair Spray to make sure your braid won’t lose its shape.


Pancake your braids.

Create some texture and volume by pancaking your braids. Gently pull the braid “apart” for a loose and natural effect.


Cross over your plaits.

Take one braid and cross it over the top of your head. Then cross the other braid over your head as well.



Secure each braid with bobby pins.


Finish your milkmaid braid tutorial with another spritz of hair spray.

Give your style another spritz of hairspray for good measure. This milkmaid braid tutorial is complete.
