The latest issue of A Magazine Italy features model Robin in playful scholastic ensembles casually strolling about a faux campus. Though she may be decked out in atypical school dress for the every day collegiate- Paul Smith, Miu Miu, and Hermes to name a few- her hairstyle is spot on. We are crushing on her loose and messy milkmaid-esque braids. Click through for more photos and on how to create these sweet braids in your hair.
Step: Towel dry hair to damp, then apply set and style spray.
Step: Use a comb to create a center part. Then use a paddle brush to blowdry hair from roots to ends, focusing on smoothness and shine.
Step: Divide hair into two equal sections, one on each side of the head. Braid both sections and secure each braid with a clear elastic.
Step: Grab one of the braids and cross it over the head to the opposite ear. Use a bobby pin to pin in place. Do the same for the other braid.
Step: Mist with holding spray.
Tip: To get a messy look like in the editorial above, try styling this look with hair dried. Simply follow all the previous steps, then start pulling strands apart to get an unkempt look.
