As soon as I saw this style at Rebecca Minkoff's Spring 2014 runway show I knew I had to re-create it! "Milkmaid" braids have been popular for a few years now, but I think using a 4 strand braid (instead of 3) makes it look fresh and more interesting.
|[Gently backcomb the hair at the crown of your head to add volume]|
|[Divide hair into 2 equal sections and make two 4 strand braids. Secure with small elastics]|
|[Bring one of the braids across the front of your head and pin in place]|
|[Repeat with the other braid. If the ends of the braids are sticking out, weave them into your hair and pin down]|
