It’s time to watch Martina flail awkwardly while she attempts to show you a hair tutorial! Yeahhhhh!!! This time I’m doing what I think is called the Milk Maid Braid using a dutch style braid, but I don’t really know if that’s the right name for it. It’s the braid that looks like a headband, kind of wrapped around the top of your head, but I’m pretty sure I’m cheating by making two separate braids and making them just LOOK like one braid. My hair is quite thin, so I’ve seen this hairstyle on other people with thick or curly hair and it looks a lot more puffy and full and lovely, but with my thin hair, this looks a lot less bohemian. Oh well.

One thing I didn’t mention in the video: braid hairstyles work best on dirty hair, so I often save my braid hairstyles for the end of my hair washing cycle so that I don’t have to wash my hair and wash out my pink dye. Oooohhh I’m so nasty. But if you want to do it on fresh hair, I recommend gel and hairspray to make your hair heavier and less fly away. That’s really about it. I guess my last piece of advice is don’t give up if it doesn’t work the first few times. It took me a while of consistently trying to do crazy braid hairstyles to get the hang of it, and I still screw up. Now I can finally do french braids, waterfall braids, four strand braids with ribbons built into it and I’m constantly going online and trying to find new braids to learn. Please post a picture or response video if you try it out! I’d love to see the results.

    I said I was gonna watch this, I can’t believe its been 2 years. Oh well, your hair has grown a lot! Still a good tutorial.

  2. I tried this, but since my hair is thick, it kinda puffs out at the bottom of the braid. So I tried it again but instead of doing a normal braid straight from the beginning, I did a tight french braid at the base. It kinda ups the difficulty, but it helped the puffiness ^^

    Thanks for the tutorial Martina! Your’s feel so much more accessible (for lack of a better word) than the majority of other make-up/hair tutorials out there.

  3. My name is Brittany and I’m a huge fan of your guys’ videos! But just to let you know because I watched this video it caused me to procrastinate on my college work! >.<  Thankfully my hair was easy to do and it looks really cute. Thanks Martina! (Oh and P.S. I didn't copy your hair style I have been doing this for years and it was originally purple it just faded to pink) 

  4. Martina, please don’t put flowers in your hair, because if you don’t already
    know, in Korea, putting flowers in your hair is considered the first
    sign of insanity (compared to talking to yourself in western countries). Not trying to be a hater, I still like it!

    Keep up the awesome work of uploading videos!

  5. This is so fast and easy-ish. Too bad I just cut my hair into a bob :(

  6. You are crazy but I love you!

  7. You are crazy but I love you!

  8. Im watching this even though im a guy… I like you guys too much…

  9. The “SHINee serenading part” is reeeeeally really important, I’m sure! :P

  10. Could you show us your hairband collection cuz I really want to see them….  Thx

  11. I will SO try this on my lil sister’s hair! She is digging the ‘braid in front of the head’ thing, but I can never do it right for her. This way would be more foolproof wouldn’t it? Thanks!

  12. Uuuuh you were singing Tablos “Bad” song just with “Sad… uuuh you so. Uhm. Creative actually. :D
    Love the braid. Thank you! :)
    Hmm… maybe I will try this tomorrow.. If I have the patience in the morning at 4:45am.
    Best regards from Germany~~

  13. I feel like I can never find bobby pins when I need them but they’re sprinkled all over my apartment. Take out a purse I haven’t used in a while, 20 bobby pins! Pull out a chair to sweep, 7 bobby pins! Behind the toilet, in the couch, around my bed, in my laundry basket, in my jewelry box, in my wallet, on the dvd shelf…. EVERYWHERE!!! I like to think this is something that happens to most females. I feel less unorganized this way.

  14. It’s called a “dutch braid” because in the Netherlands, we do things a little backward…

  15. What does Martina’s tattoo say? 
    The hair braid tutorial was awesome! But I’m not sure if my hair is long enough for the two braids to connect at the top of my head (I have thin hair like Martina). :’( I’ll try it when my hair grows a bit more.

  16. I did this and my dad asked me if I was going to a Renaissance Faire.

  17. My hair’s too short for this. :/

  18. Oh, my! Simon was bad in this video!

  19. Can this work if you don’t have bangs? My bangs are as long as the rest of my hair.

  20. Hareem Siddiqi

    does anybody know where the “sexy hey” line and “super slow motion” lines are from. Simon and martina say them in a few videos so i was wonderin what songs they were from

  21. my hair is thick like straw, and i have ALOT of it, so i am gonna try it and hope it works :) THANKS! =D

  22. Great!! Now do the hair bow!! :D

  23. Hareem Siddiqi

    Can you show us how to do the bow hairstyle! 

  24. Will have to try this look, but at my age and grey hairs (hmmm time for Ms. Clairol to come visit) I look like I stepped out of the 1960′s. Dancing around singing Aquarius…Peace, Love, and some Tablo..

  25. Martina, your hair is so pretty. Like, it’s soft and shiny. I want. XD

  26. Thank you for that  tutorial, I always love watching them because they are so easy to follow, definitely trying this out on my hair that I just messed up a couple of days ago, I need to hide the extra short part that looks totally weird.

  27. You should do more hairstyle videos! I absolutely love all of your hair styles!

  28. You’re sooooo pretty Martina :D Thank you for this hair tutorial, you should try to make a make up tutorial too, it would be great! ~~ <3

  29. i tried it out and it turned out pretty well but its just one side was longer and couldn’t hide the elastic, its just i didnt use hair spray >:D

  30. for the curling your hair with a tshirt. ( I WAS IN PLAYLIST MODE) will it work with cleaning rags? clean of course, or do you NEED to use a tshirt. I dont really have any cheap shirts….

  31. I just tried the Maid Marian hairdo, it came out pretty well :D
    Thanks for giving us easy tutorials!

    Btw, am I the only one who got that Tablo reference? Epik High anyone? No? Seriously?
    ……….feeling kinda lonely here D:

  32. thatssumgoodcurry

    I love how Simon pulled a Martina face after he mentioned the bit about kittens purring when you kiss them. XD
    You two are so adorable. ^^

  33. it can! I did the braid (a little different with the rest of the hair, but it worked out! (fyi i didn’t use hair spray or gel for the flyaways, but if you do it’ll look great! ^.^)

  34. Ooooooh~~~ I wanna try this =D *runs off to try* Onward!! /(^o^)/

    Ps. Martina!! You shouldn’t worry & definitely do more hair tutorials! <3!! Because you're so easy going with them they seem so much more achievable xD

  35. you need to add Meemers into the intrro!!

  36. Wow so I’ve been dutch braiding this whole time? I thought going under WAS normal

  37. So cute!! Totally going to do this to my daughter’s hair for the first day of school :)

  38. I have short hair, but I will try this on my friend who loves it when I play with her hair

  39. Awiieeee  I love this hairstly but I cant do it cause I have a fashion mullet! sad face!

  40. ohh… i like it! i’m going to try it!

  41. Did you know…
    That the ‘right’ way to put in bobby pins is for the short weird jaggedy side to be downwards, and the flat straight side up? That’s so the hair stays and stuff. I think it would help and use less bobby pins; ALWAYS a plus.
    since my rambling doesn’t make sense… here is a lovely link! http://honeyandfitz.blogspot.com/2011/10/bobby-pin-101.html#axzz1uIKXu1s8 

  42. Are you going to dye Dr. Meemersworth like spudgy? I Wanted to give my grandmas dog a spudgy-over, but wasn’t allowed…. so i did my cat!!! He has spots on his back so I had to do his belly. It was EXTREMELY difficult, but worth it. He looks adorable now. 

  43. Martina, your hair reminds me of the Ricola commercials and Milka and Kinder chocolate from Europe! Maid Marian! Ou Da La Li! 

  44. Martina!! You need to youtube videos on how to do a snake braid. soooo easy and would look so badass with your 2 tone hair!

  45. cute!!!!! i want my hair to grow back too!

  46. It’s frikken cool, let me recommend this to my non-kpop loving friend cause she always has a new different hairstyle everyday-ish, lets just say she likes making her hair look fancy and pretty :)

  47. Have you tried back pinning with your bobby pins? It uses less pins, is stronger and is usually invisible ^^

  48. SO pretty. hehehe. I want to try this

  49. SHINee serenading while you work… NOT BAD :L

  50. I have long hair but I can’t braid..and my hair is very thick and whenever someone braids my hair,it is very thick =.=

  51. I love this tutorial, but I have curly hair. Do you think I can still rock those braids?

  52. I want G-dragon’s braids tutorial XXD kekekeke

  53. Why must I have short hair right now?!!! DX

  54. Only if I had long, pretty and girly hair.

  55. now i want to do this. lol. :p

  56. Martina is a pretty elf  *blushes*

  57. I have long hair, like around twice and a half as long as your long side, What do you think I could do with my hair? 

  58.  What is your guys opinion about the Jpop Vs. Kpop? Do you guys think this is completely unnecessary since both are two completely different countries/genres or what?

    • I find Jpop a lot more… twinkly and high pitched… Which isn’t always a bad thing, I mean groups like SNSD are into that stuff, but then again I don’t really like them as much as I do Big Bang and 2NE1 and BuskerBusker and whatnot. I personally like Korean hip hop a lot better, for some reason I just can’t take Japanese hip hop seriously lol. And Korean indie music is boss.

  59. YAY!!
    Martina, I’d like to thank you for making an awesome hair tutorial! This is officially the FIRST tutorial video that I did NOT a) fast forward or b) stop watching before it finished.
    Thank you for making the most awesome of awesome girly tutorials!! I eagerly await future lessons!
