Hi, I'm Aisha, and I'm a natural hairstylist. There are so many braided looks and styles to choose from, and I'm going to show you how to achieve this one. This is the milk maid braided hairstyle. This is a chic, cute and casual updo. This allows you to show the sexiness and the length of your neck. So, here are the tools that we need to get started, a paddle brush, a comb to part your hair into two, a leave in conditioner or water in a spray bottle to smooth your hair out so your hair stays in place, duck clips to hold your hair and small rubber bands. Okay, so to start off, use a paddle brush to smooth the hair. Spray the hair with a leave in conditioner. Part the hair into three sections and braid. Once the braid is completed, I'll use a rubber band to hold it in place. So, that's where you use to anchor the straight pins to create your style. So now, I've created two braids with the rubber bands very close to the end of the braid. So, you want to take one braid and turn it to the forward part lined up with your ear. Take a straight pin and anchor it just below the rubber band. Take the braid on your other side and do the same process but this time you want to cross over the braid, then take another straight pin to make sure that the braid alongside your hair is securely in place. I'm Aisha, and this is how you achieve the milk maid braided hairstyle, fast, easy and fabulous.
