How to Do Easy Fast Fishtail Milk Maid Braids

Growing up with three brothers and no sisters meant I didn’t have much sibling hair to play with. Sure there were the random instances were my brother had long Jesus hair during high school and let me braid his hair once- but let’s just say this wasn’t an everyday occurrence. Ha! So with that I quickly learned at a young age it was doll heads or my own. Well as a girl who want’s some gratification and loves to play dress up, I quickly learned to braid my own hair. In fact I would say I am better at french braiding my own hair rather than others- kinda odd huh? Anyways, today I am going to show you a quick up do that involves fishtail braids and resembling the milk maid. You okay with that? 🙂

Step one: part your hair down the center

Step two: make a fish tail braid on each side, not sure how?

Separate the hair into two even sections, next grab a section of hair from just above your ear and cross over the top of that section you pulled from to combine the hair with the opposing section.

Next, after you tie off the end of the braid it’s time to “loosen” up your look by pulling apart the braid a bit. Simply grab both sides and gently tug to stretch the braid. fishtail up-do_0006
