There’s arguably no sweeter style than milkmaid braids, so naturally they’ve become one of our go-to summer ‘dos. They’re simple enough to create, and they’ll keep you cool in the summer heat. And of course they look incredibly adorable. Plenty of celebs have been rocking these lovely braids lately, so we’re sharing our simple tutorial for the perfect maiden braids.

Step 1: Towel dry hair to damp, then apply set and style spray.

Step 2: 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 3: 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 4: 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 5: Mist with holding spray.
