It is only right since my sorority name is Sister Crown (Theta Phi til I Die!), that one of my favorite styles is the braided crown. The day I did this style I was too lazy to go out and buy color extensions. LOL
I already had a few packs of hair in my natural hair color. The amount of hair you put in your hair will determine the size of your braid. I knew I wanted a loose medium size braid. I like to start the braid low, at the back of my head. Because the crown will have a better look in front when it goes around. I took my time braiding, because honestly, it is a bit of a challenge making a perfect braid(s) going around your hair. As I was going around, I notice the braid getting a little smaller.. I added a few pieces of hair. Once I got to where I started, I braided the excess hair to the end. Then tucked the excess braid under the crown going around again.
BOBBY PINS ARE YOUR BEST FROM FOR THE STYLE.
It is ok if the braid is not perfect. I used bobby pins to hold down the excess braid and any parts sticking out. Bobby pins helps the look of the crown.
This is one my all-time favorite looks. An, I am to blessed to have the name Sister Crown!
BTW: I WILL BE TRYNG THIS LOOK OUT WITH COLOR HAIR!
