[VIDEO] Easy Milkmaid Braids!

You might have noticed that I’ve been wearing my hair up in milkmaid braids a lot.  I admit, that one of the things I love about Game of Thrones has been the elaborate hairstyles – especially Cersei’s elaborate braids.  And on Teen Wolf, Lydia Martin wears her hair braided in about four different and amazing ways.

And honestly, there are a lot of mornings I don’t – but this is my 5 minute routine for when I want to look pulled together. So what’s the secret? Figure out what you want to focus on, and include that in your on the go routine. Don’t want to use mascara, but you’d rather have lipstick? Swap it out!
