Martina’s Milk Maid Braid Tutorial

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.

  1. 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)

  2. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. Uuuuh you were singing Tablos “Bad” song just with “Sad… uuuh you so. Uhm. Creative actually. :D

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
