Donning the Double Braid

For many of us the double braid conjures up memories of primary school and Sunday evenings spent on the floor while being braided. New York Fashion Week this year however, showed us that the braid is back!

According to Vogue “a tight pair of twin plaits became the ultimate off-duty hair statement for Kim Kardashian West and Harper Beckham, and already the style has a street style stamp of approval from models who wore their plaited runway looks straight off the runway”. Right now my favourite double-braider is Jess Glynne, who knows how to rock a tune and rock a hair-do. 

There are many different ways to wear your braid; from sleeked back, to messy and festival-styled boho, but my personal favourite is the Dutch-braid and the Milkmaid braid. Both of which are versatile and fun, can be worn to work and on a date, and are both simple to do DIY.

Follow these simple steps for a milkmaid braid:

Step 1: Brush your hairs thoroughly so you can be sure there is not even a single knot throughout your hair.

Step 2: Make a partition in your hairs so you can have equal bulk on both the sides after partition.

Step 3: If you wish then rub hair styling cream on the partition and start plating you hair so you can reach to end & your braid is ready.

Step 4: Use some hair spray so you can make sure that no hair falls out.

Step 5: Pull up the braids upward across your head and fix them underneath each other with the help of bobby pins and the final hair spray will secure your hair style.

It’s rare that runway becomes real-wear, but this trendy new hairdo is definitely one such case, and i'm loving it.
