Easy Scarf Milkmaid Braids Tutorial

     This time of year is so hot and humid I can’t bear to wear my hair down for long! Instead of resorting to the usual bun I’ve been wearing my hair in these Scarf Milkmaid Braids. Using a scarf to secure the braids (instead of bobby pins) makes it hold so much better! I like hairstyles that once they’re finished you don’t have to fuss with. This is one of those styles! If I haven’t sold you on this style yet, as an added bonus you get great no-heat beach waves when you take it out.

Supplies
Long skinny scarf or strip of fabric (it should be longer than your hair on each side)
Clear elastics

Divide your hair in half. Take the fabric and center it around the back of your neck.
