Clip away the remainder of the hair. Step 3: Start on the scalp braid (cornrow) and continue it into a regular three-strand braid. Step 4: Tie off the end with an elastic or back-comb with hairspray. Step 5: Repeat on the other side. Step 6: Back comb the crown of the remaining hair to add height. Step 7: Split the remainder of the hair in half and secure each with a hair bungee. This will help keep the fishbraid tight. Step 8: Start a fishtail braid, taking small sections at a time. Secure the end with elastic. Repeat on the other side. Step 9: Unhook the bungee and loosen up the fishtail braids. Step 10: Connect the three-strand braid to the fishtail braid with hairpins at the end. Make sure each braid is on either side of the ear to expose the ear. Step 11: Finish off with hairspray. Easily whip your hair back and forth.

Milkmaid braids might be all the rage on Pinterest, but occasionally that look gets a little too... precious. Enter Bumble and bumble's hair guru Mischa G., who created a showstopping braided hairstyle for Opening Ceremony's photos of Ammerman Schlösberg's Fall/Winter 2014 collection.

Taking cues from the collection's "Gothic Lolita" vibe, Mischa's cornrow-meets-fishtail concoction is part grungy Grimes pigtails, part Willow Smith "Whip My Hair" swagger. And, while it might look complicated—four braids, say what?—we've got certain styling tricks that make this complex-looking 'do easy enough to do yourself (even half-awake on hungover Sunday mornings).
