Natural Hair

Crown Braid

May 19, 2015

I felt tinge of regret today as I spoke to my friend Chika about natural hair and the journey. She arrived at work today with a bun that was so cute and I wondered why I decided to cut my hair.

It passed over quickly though and instead I shared my knowledge about what I love about natural hair and some of my tips (coming up soon on the blog). I began to reminisce about my favourite styles and the Crown braid came up.

Crown braids are second only to the puff! It’s so versatile, like many of my favourite styles, it can be dressed up or down. Super elegant for a dinner, carefree and fun enough for the beach. I mean this was the hairstyle I had for my wedding, topped with a flower crown.

A crown braid or Halo braid is super simple to do if you know how to braid and you can do variations by changing the part or switching it up to a flat twist.

Here’s a tutorial to help.

Natural or not, what is your favourite hairstyle?

Ps- I’m currently rocking waist length braids, which I love!

Love always,
