Hair Care

By Lauren Sigmon

Summer is (unfortunately) slowly coming to an end, and if you’re like me, you’ve probably run through your repertoire of heat loving, humidity fighting hairstyles.

Thankfully, Butterfly Studio Salon stylist Jason J. Dougherty still has some tricks up his sleeve and shared with us his updated variation of the Milkmaid braid—a look easy enough to do at home and chic enough to go from office to happy hour.

How to get the look:

Step 1. Comb the hair and work out all tangles.

Step 2. Apply a light oil, like Oribe Gold Lust Hair Oil, and work through the ends.

Step 3. Create a center part and bring it all the way down to the back. Divide hair in two sections.

Step 4. Place a smoothing balm, such as Shu Uemura’s Touch of Gloss on the roots and work into the crown.

Step 5. Comb hair nice and taught and begin a thick French Braid on one side of the head. Place an elastic rubber band to hold ends. Repeat on other side.

Step 6. Bring one braid up and anchor to head with bobby pins. Repeat on the other side. Allow pieces to fall around the face for an ultra-effortless look.
