The crown braid has been one of our favorite hair trends of the summer. And because it’s so easy, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t try it too!

Here is how we did it:

Brush out your hair. Part it vaguely in the center (it’s okay if you part it with a slight side part, but the key should be that it is not extreme).

Gather the hair you’d like to braid. I like to grab the section falling from my part to my ear, but you can tweak this to make your “crown” more or less thick.

Begin braiding. As you do so, lift and pull your hair up and back, so it will fall flat when you pull it across the back of your head. When your braid is long enough, pin it at the end so that it falls across the entirety of the back of your head.

Repeat this step on the other side. When you have enough braid, tuck the end underneath the original braid, and then pin.

Hairspray and you are done!
