royal crown braid is certainly a style fit for a princess or a queen
and what hairstyle would be more fitting for the Diamond Jubilee
festivities over the weekend? This braid incorporates tips from our
previous tutorials for the Milk Maid Braid and French Braid but also
includes a few new tricks! This style is perfect for summer as it keeps
all your hair away from your face, even if you have a bang/fringe this
can be tucked into the braid!
you’re using your hair extensions for added volume, I would advise
fitting these upside down and personally I think your Quad Weft and just
one 3 clip weft would be enough for this style. Fit these roughly
around ear height before you start.
create the royal crown braid you need to use an inside out french
braiding technique...don’t worry about this as it isn’t as tricky as it
may sound and gives a gorgeous look as the braid will appear more
prominent! I find starting above the ear easiest as you can see what you
are creating! Section your hair from ear to ear as it will be the front
section you will be braiding first.
create the inside out braid look all you need to do is pass the hair
underneath the previous section whereas you would normally position this
over the top! So using the same technique from the French Braid
tutorial simply incorporate some of loose hair with each section and
angle the braid around the front of your hairline.
you have incorporated all the front section of hair you need to
continue the royal crown braid around your head. You should have enough
hair to continue using the sections from the front. This can be a little
tricky to see how your braid is looking so using a mirror behind and
one in front can really help you see what you're doing!!
all your hair has been french braided you should have a complete ring
of braided locks all the way around your head. If you have loads of hair
left you have two options...you can either keep braiding this and wrap
this inside of the crown braid you have already created or you can
secure your braid at the join and use the ends of your hair to smooth
out the section of hair inside your braid.
royal crown braid hairstyle looks stunning and super girly for any of
your Summer occasions...why not braid in a ribbon, add in a daisy chain
or, especially for the Jubilee, some red, white, and blue bows!! :) We’d
love to know if you attempt this hairstyle....add some pics to our
Facebook page so we can take a look. :)
