DIY hairstyle: knotted milkmaid braid.

my pinterest addiction can be summed up in pins about hair. it makes sense considering that for the past 5 years i've worked for a salon, surrounded by copious amounts of hair, ladies obsessed with hair, photos of hairstyles, hair products... you get the picture.

hence, i wanted to try something different than the stereotypical plait, waterfall braid, etc, etc. [i.e. the same styles everyone else is wearing] 

warning: this is not your traditional milkmaid braid considering there's no actual braiding involved. perhaps the "knotted milkmaid faux braid" would be a more appropriate title! ;)

steps: choose which side of the head to begin your knots. on that side, select two equal sections of hair just above the ear and tie a knot pulling upward. moving up [and eventually around the crown] carefully add more hair to either section and repeat the knotting process. continue around the head until you've reached the opposite ear. secure with a couple bobby pins and... voila, you're done!

  9. Awesome braids! :) I love your look! This is probably one of the top reasons why having a sister is so great. You can spend the whole doing each other's hair in different ways, trying new things out, painting nails, doing each other's makeup. It's super cute!
