Braids are usually all the rage during the summer time, or honestly anytime. I can only do certain types of braids on myself, other types of braids on other people, and some I just cannot master because either I confuse which piece of hair goes next or my arms tell me I should work out because they are not strong enough and get tired and shake and it’s becomes a mess just to keep my hair up..
But today I did it! I wore milkmaid braids!
Not that I hadn’t mastered how to do this look before – because quite honestly it’s not hard and I had – but I finally wore it out in public. And yes, I did get stares because it’s not common and it might look a little dorky from an angle, but I really don’t care, I loved how they looked. It made me feel like I was a lady in those old paintings. <3
We were out of town and waiting in line and it was hot that I just decided to braid my hair and it transformed into that. BEST DECISION EVER! If you know how to do a basic braid, have bobbie pins around, and want to look like your hairdo took longer to make than it did, DO THIS! I did this with second-day hair. No shame! And with no mirror, other than the reflection my mother’s glasses gave. So see, you can do it too.
Basically you make two braids, one on each side of your head, tie the ends with a hair tie, cross them on top of your head to the opposite side, and pin them down. That’s it.
TA-DA! Easy. I wore my bangs during the day but later at night I pushed them back between my braids to have my forehead free.
Style it however you want and wear whatever you wish. If you like something, rock it!
If you try it, let me know!
