How to plait hair: The Milk Maid Plait

milk maid plait

The Milk maid plait is a sophisticated style perfect to keep your hair off your neck and back and though it may look intricate and complex it is incredibly easy to achieve:

  • Part your hair down the middle and apply styling cream if you wish (this will hold it in place)
  • Plait the hair on both sides and secure each plait with a band. Apply spray to keep the hair in place.
  • Pull one of the plaits up and place it across the front of your head like a headband. Fix it in place with hair grips.
  • Place the other plait on top of the first one and fix it with hair grips (underneath so they are not visible).
  • Secure with hairspray
