How to Wear Milkmaid Braids in Fall

How Do You Get a Milkmaid Braid Like Maria?

Carrie Underwood took to the small screen last night as Maria in The Sound of Music, and instantly, her braided updo became one of our favorite things! But, we've got plenty of other inspiration on the classic milkmaid braid style. Alice + Olivia featured the braided style during its Fall 2013 show at New York Fashion Week with oversize plaits and red lips. And we've even spotted Katy Perry — in an Alice + Olivia ensemble, no less! — sporting milkmaid braids and red lips.

The trick to wearing the style in cooler weather is keeping it slick and neat. While the braids of Spring and Summer tend to be a little more on the tousled and wispy side, Fall's braids require a bit more upkeep. To keep things looking slick, spritz your hands with a strong-hold hairspray, like Rusk Strong Hold Shaping and Control Hairspray ($14), and run them over the braids to tame flyaways. You'll have instant milkmaid braids in a snap, whether you are headed to the Alps or a holiday party.
