How to style a braided crown

Crown 1This is my favorite new way to wear my hair. I am obsessed with a braided crown! I love how it looks pulled together, yet still laid back. In essence you french braid your hair around the crown of your head, let's take a closer look...

Crown steps1. You want to start by pulling the majority of your hair forward (in front of your face) from nearly the back of your hair line. This is going to feel very Cousin It but you want most of your hair to be toward the front of your head before you begin. Start on one side of the base of your neck and separate three strands of hair. 2. Begin braiding these three strands together. 3. As you braid, follow along the crown of your head and add a little hair to each strand as you braid around. 4. Once you've braided around the front of your head finish the braid and use an elastic band to secure it. Pin the braid in place, tucking and pinning any loose pieces.

Oh, and don't be discouraged if your very first braided crown is a little messy, mine was too! It takes a little practice to get it looking just right. Have fun! xo. Emma
