Crown Braid

Braided hairstyles are everywhere right now (think one big braid vs lots of little ones). The queen of them all is the crown braid. Seen in many variations on red carpets and runways, why not try this braided updo yourself? It’s a stunning look for prom or any special occasion and easy enough to style yourself.



Melody Thornton wore the length of hair is braided and coiled into a crown along the hairline. Another way to sport this look is similar to Heidi braids, where two plaits are formed below the ear and again pinned around the crown, taking special attention to secure the braids where they criss cross. To finish the look, tuck the ends underneath to conceal them. All eyes will be on you so wear some dazzling earrings or special makeup.
