They come and go but never really lose their romance. A braid encircling the head – often known as a milkmaid braid or a crown braid – can ooze folkish innocence and an underlying sensual awareness that not many hairstyles in themselves can muster. We’ve been spotting them recently both on the street around the fashion week circuit, and on the haute couture runways – so as a hairstyle in 2013 you can’t go wrong.
A cute style that can be pulled off by many, there’s one minor problem with milkmaid braids: you either need really long hair, or a very well-matched hair piece. If you do have the hair length to pull it off, then look to a few different variations for inspiration. After the break: 5 video tutorials for milkmaid braids that you can try this week.
