Simple braiding skills are all you need for this style, which works for hair that’s medium-length to long. Get the look: Separate hair into two low pigtails. Braid both sections and secure with clear elastics. Pull one braid up over your head and bobby-pin it an inch back from your hairline. Repeat on the opposite side, positioning the second braid behind the first.

Ah the milkmaid braid, so beautiful. So daunting. I don't know about you but something that looks that stunning always was a little scary when it came to self styling. But, thanks to our hair stylist superhero Ammon Carver of the Ammon Carver L'ANZA Healing Hair Care Salon, we've seen the light. It ain't all that hard.

1. Part your hair in the middle.
2. Leave both sides with an equal amount of hair.
3. Braid the right section.
4. Fasten with an elastic band.
5. Wrap braid over your hair like a head band and pin into place.
6. Repeat on the left section.
