Hair | Crown Braid


It's been a while since I've done a hair post and so today, I wanted to share my step-by-step guide to a crown braid. These are notoriously fiddly but really worth mastering if you are fan of braids or just like keeping your hair out of your face. This style is best done on mid length to long hair and requires a bit of texture to keep it looking full. Read on to check out how to do it...

Step 1
Start off with clean dry hair. If it's freshly washed, add a little texturising spray so that the hair has some grip when it comes down to styling.
 ──────
Step 2
 Starting about an inch above your ear, separate the hair into two sections, front and back, leaving a straight parting just below the crown of your head. Dutch braid the hair around the back of the head. 
──────
Step 3
 Continue the Dutch braid all the way across the back of the head. If you're doing this on yourself, you'll have to change your hand positions a few times to make sure you're still going in the right direction.
 ──────
Step 4
 Bring the Dutch braid around the front of the head, now using the hair that was separated at the beginning. 
──────
Step 5
 Bring the Dutch braid all the way around, using up the remaining loose hair and continue with the braid until all the hair has been used up. 
──────
Step 6
Bring the loose braid around the back and pin into place. If the braids look a little sparse, gently pull on the edges to make them look fuller. Spray with a little hairspray to ensure that everything holds.



Have you ever tried a crown braid?
