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.
