Milk Maid Wrap

This is a really basic style but it does require long hair.  (Sorry all you cute bobs out there!)
 Start by dividing the hair down the middle using any part you like.  Now pull each side up into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic.  Create a 3-Strand Braid out of each ponytail and secure it at the end with an elastic. 
 Now have some bobby pins ready for this next step.  Take the right braid and wrap it around the elastic holding the left braid and add some bobby pins by the elastic to hold the braid there in place. 
 Repeat the same step with the left braid going over the right elastic. 
 Now gather both of the remaining braids on each side and bring them to the middle and join them with a new elastic. 
You can take out the previous two elastics that were holding the ends of the braids and unplate any braid that falls under the new joining elastic.  You can use some bobby pins to secure this elastic area to the braids above but it is not a necessary step. 
 Place a hair clip over the elastic to hide it and fan out the ends of your braids.
