How To: Crown Braid

Hello everyone! 

Today I have a quick post on how to do a crown braid! The crown braid has been catching alot of my attention lately, having seen it in pictures of runways, red carpets and on tv! It's also a super easy hairstyle to do for spring. To make things easier, I've made a quick image guide. If you need more detailed instructions, scroll down for more words.

1: Divide hair into 2 sections
2: Braid each side. Just a basic 3 strand braid and pancake the braid (make braid look thicker by loosening it slightly) If you're a pro or has lots of time, do a 4 strand/5 strand braid if you want!
3:Take one braid and pull it to the other side of your head. In other words, take the left braid and pin it on the right side of your head and vice versa. Pin it with 1-2 pins. I like to use 2 because this will hold the braid in place better.
4: Take the other braid and do the same. Try to hide the bobby pins by tucking your hair over them.
5: Tuck the fringe into the side of the braid if you've got a long fringe. pin it in with a bobby pin.
6: and you're done! You can switch it up by incorporating a scarf while braiding or adding floral hair accessories. For a messier/bohemian look, leave a few strands of hair hanging and curl them to frame your face.

Well I hope you've enjoyed this post! I would say this hairstyle is great for people with thin hair too (as seen from Christine).

Till next time
Love,
El
