This undone milkmaid braid is tousled, messy, and will earn you a compliment or two at whatever celebration you have planned, guaranteed. Click here to see blogger Amber Fillerup demonstrate the step-by-steps via video.
Sometimes, subtler is better. Starting with tousled model-off-duty hair, take a one-inch section, starting at your crown, and braid it loosely all the way down. Repeat four to five times around your head for a very Woodstock-esque effect.
This hairstyle takes all of 10 seconds and works best on slightly textured second-day hair. Gather your hair starting at both temples, then braid into a loose half braid. Spritz with a texture spray, like Oribe's Texturizing Spray, $50, secure with an elastic, then go frolick at the beach.
