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.
Brush your hair to remove tangles.
Part your hair in the center and bring it forward.
Tie one section of your hair with an elastic band. Keep an elastic on hand for the next step.
Grab a rectangular section of your hair and twist it away from your face three times.
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.
When you get to the end, make sure there are no bumps and if there are, go back and sort them out.
Braid your hair all the way down and secure it with an elastic band.
Repeat Steps 1 -7 for the other side.
Grab the two braids you’ve created and tie them into a ponytail.
Secure any loose hairs with a bobby pin.
Grab one braid and tie it around the other; secure it with a bobby pin.
Lightly spray L’oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray to secure your hairstyle.
Grab the remaining braid and twist it in the opposite direction. Tuck the end into your bun and secure it with a bobby pin.
Pin any loose sections to make the hairstyle look sleek and clean.
Apply more hairspray.
Tip: For fly-aways near the ears, spray the hairspray onto your fingers first and apply it onto the hair that way.
Now you’re ready for your GNO or hot date with this effortless and casual twisted braid.
