How to Do a Half Crown Braid

Create this look for your next night out. It works best for medium to long length hair, and all you need are some bobby pins. This look works well for a bridal party look, a date night, or even a casual day out.

Wrap the braid behind and around the back of your head and secure with bobby pins. If your hair is longer, leave the extra length hanging (you will come back to it!).

After you have secured the first braid, gather a second section of hair on the left side of your head. Use the same amount of hair to braid a second braid all the way down the length of your hair.

Once you secure the second braid, take the end (if you ended up with extra length), and twist and tuck it underneath either braid and secure with bobby pins. Do the same for the opposing side of your hair so that both ends are tucked and secured behind the braids.

If you would like fuller looking braids, you can tug gently on some of the strands to pull them out slightly for a bigger braid look. You can also do this before you pin them depending on your preference. Secure with hairspray!
