I’m usually useless when it comes to doing anything with my hair, but I tried something out the other day, and really loved the result! I thought I’d do a tutorial post on the blog today – milkmaid braids perfect for a visit to King’s Landing! I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones at the moment and this hairstyle really reminded me of Westeros, so hopefully I’ll be able to start a series out of this. Bookish looks rock!
For me, this works best with newly washed hair and it’s so, so easy to do. For someone like me who can’t do hair to save her life, I felt such a sense of achievement after doing it!
You will need:
Two hair ties, bobby pins and a hairbrush.
Optional: Hairspray (but I didn’t need any!)
Part your hair down the middle, and braid your hair into two plaits so it looks like the above picture. I kept my fringe and some of my hair out of the plaits on both sides, which will frame your face in the end result.
