The crown braid is the most revolutionary and versatile hairstyle to happen to braids since the French braid. This hairstyle can be worn with every hair texture and length, works well with your hair down, up or half-up and can be worn for the most elegant of events or your boho music festival. Instead of sticking with the basic crown braid each time, find inspiration from these stylish and sassy crown braids.
The Stacked Crown Braid
This updo crown braid is a new twist on the old style. Instead of have one long rope braid across your head, stack the braid by crossing one side over the other for a visible twisted crown braid. This look isn’t best for those ladies with short hair, but you could always add extensions for that special event that this would be perfect for.
Crown Braid into Side Braid or Ponytail
This is another great option for ladies with medium length to longer hair. When you decide to wear a side braid, why stop with just the shaft of your tresses? Throw in a crown braid to really make your hairstyle stand out from the crowd. This look is great for those who want to keep their hair down but still off their face. However, if you have shorter hair, you can still rock this look just pull your shorter tresses into a ponytail in the back.
Crown Braid with Bangs
Whether you have side-swept bangs or blunt bangs, the crown braid is a stunning hairstyle option. You simply have to set the crown braid back a little further to leave your bangs in front of the braid. This look is ultra charming and whether you have a chin-length bob or ultra long locks, this hairstyle is a great casual or special occasion look.
Crown Twist Braid
Most crown braids are a 3-strand braid or a French braid, but if you’re looking to try something different then opt for a twist rather than a braid. Complete this hairstyle with a bun, ponytail, half-down or twist up all your locks for a complete updo. This look is perfect for any formal event or summer day that you need your hair pulled back.
Half-Up Half Down Crown Braid
This is kind of an ambiguous crown braid style because in all honesty, it should have it’s own post (and maybe it will in the near future!) because the half-up half-down crown braid has as many variations as the braid itself. From thick boho style braids to dainty and elegant strands, you can really make this look your own.
Curly Hair with a Crown Braid
Crown braids aren’t just for the straight haired ladies – or even those perfect beach waved hairstyles. If you have super curly locks, rather natural or chemical or curling ironed, a crown braid can be the perfect look. The braid blends in with the curls so it doesn’t make as bold of a statement and is more effortlessly beautiful. It’s also a great way to tame the mane.
