The Crown Braided Updo

We’ve been obsessed with updos  lately! The crown braided updo is a playful, romantic twist on the regular styles. It recalls a certain fairy-tale vibe that we love.  This hairstyle isn’t the easiest to achieve, but if you can pull it off you’ll look like the belle of the ball! Want this gorgeous hairstyle? Simply follow these steps.


The Crown Braided UpdoTexture and Tease

In order to get this look, you have to have hair with a little bit of texture, which you can add with a beach spray or a dry shampoo. Once this is done, tease your hair at the roots near the crown of your head. This will make your path a lot easier!


Separate Your Hair

This is the most challenging part, but with a little practice you’ll be a pro in no time. Separate your hair into two pigtails and braid them. Make sure to not braid them too tight to leave a loose more romantic look. Secure them with clear elastics.


Tie It Up

Pull each braid over your head and bobby-pin it an inch back from your hairline. Take the two pieces in the back and tie them together. Add a couple more pins where the two braids meet.


Secure the Look

As you may have noticed, this is a delicate look. So use those bobby pins liberally to secure your hair. Don’t be afraid to use a little product like VO5 Salon Series Perfect Hold Hairspray to keep all your locks in check.
