Easy Twisted Crown Braid Tutorial

If your personality is effortless and casual rather than formal and serious, you’ll love the look of this twisted crown braid. It’s a style you can wear all day long without worrying about whether it’ll get messy and, even if it does, you’ll still look good. (Remember: messy is the new sexy).

Follow these steps to re-create the look.

Step 5

Grab some hair from both sections, add them to the section you’ve just divided and start twisting. Twist the hair away from your face and make sure it’s twist. Keep doing this until you’ve reached the bottom of your hair.

You’re essentially creating a French braid.
