Cute Milkmaid Braids for Spring

Thursday, 15 March 2012



This is a style I've sported on numerous occasions (and in my Woven post) and I finally filmed a Tutorial for it. It's simple, cute, and perfect for spring! What do you think? :)

What you'll need...

Combs/Brushes
Heat Protectant (Tresseme)
Finishing Spray (Tresseme...forgot to include a clip with me using it, but you get the gist!)
Hair Bands
Bobby Pins/Hair Grips
Straightner (Mine's a DIVA one, but any will do!)
Extensions (Expression, Half a packet for each braid. Can be purchased in any Afro-Carrib Hair Store!)

~~~

On my Face

Eyes : Blacktrack Fluidline (MAC), Bad Gal Lash (Benefit)
Lips : Cherry Lipliner & Ruby Woo Lipstick (MAC)
Face : Face & Body Foundation, Studio Finish Concealer (MAC)

Nails : Aquamarine (Mavala)

I'm so glad you did the tutorial! Its very cute and chic, and is something I definitely want to try.

I love braided updo's. If you're ever looking for inspiration, google Jessica Alba and Kourtney Kardashian updos's. They have a ton.
