Hair trend to try? Milkmaid braids! Here’s the only milkmaid braid tutorial you’ll need, but first a little glam. A romanic hairstyle hair deserves something soft and warm, like peachy tones inspired by this Tom Ford Bitter Peach Palette. Apply the lightest shade, Peachy Nude to the entire lid. Then contour the outer corners with Peachy. Along your lash line, build out some depth with the brown. Lastly, use your finger to apply the Burnt Siena – the payoff is amazing! To prevent fallout from the shadows, I love using these Peter Thomas Roth Eye Patches and doing my skin second. Oh, and this Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect lipstick is literally the perfect match to this Bitter Peach palette!
But what you’re all here for… the hair! Milkmaid braids work best on second day hair so use Oribe’s Gold Lust Dry Shampoo to give your hair some texture and then a little Dry Texturizing spray. Next, I parted my hair down the center.
If you don’t have bangs, down worry, milkmaid braids look great with or without. Then braid both sides, flushed against each ear and use your fingers to pull the braids apart a bit, giving them a little texture. Here’s the fun part, grab a stack of bobby pins to secure them on top of your head, tucking the ends in and accessorize with playful pearl bobby pins, like the ones I’m using from Jennifer Behr.
