We are on to day 17 of the 30 Day Braiding Challenge – 30 Days of New Braids.
Today’s challenge is milkmaid braids. Milkmaid braids are also known as Heidi braids. The original style is to wear them as two 3 strand braids, wrapped up and over the head – but there are many beautiful ways that you can mix it up for a different look. This is such a great style for summer as you can easily get all the hair out of your face and off your neck.
Additional Ways To Style
I know that yesterday’s challenge was a tricky one – so hopefully today you are pleasantly surprised with how easy the milkmaid braids are to do!
