Easy 5 Step Milkmaid Braid

Braids continue to be a summer favorite. The side braid and fishtail braid were super trendy last summer and the milkmaid braid is hot this summer. I love this braid because it’s really easy to do and you can dress it up or down. Check out my easy 5 step tutorial below. Enjoy!

Here’s what you’ll need!

1. Rat-tail Comb

2. Synthetic Hair (or human hair extensions)

3. Bobby Pins

4.  Hair Ties

Step #1

 Part hair into two sections.

Step #2

 *Chicks with long thick hair … skip this step and go to step #4*

If your hair is short or thin,  you’ll need to add synthetic or human hair to your ponytail. When you have the desired amount of hair separate your ponytail hair in half and pin the extension hair just above your ear.

Step #3

 Once the hair extension is secure, use a hair tie to secure the ponytail in place.

Step #4

 Braid the ponytail down and secure the end with a hair tie or rubber band. Repeat the process on the other side.

Step #5

 Bring one braid across your head and pin in place. Bring the second braid across and pin in place. Continue to pin braids down until it feels secure.

Done!

  It should look something like this when you finish. Chicks with these 5 easy steps you can turn a bad hair day into a super cute summer hairstyle. Thanks for reading:)
