The Crown Braid is definitely one of the most challenging, but in my opinion, it’s also the prettiest! Don’t get discouraged if you can’t do it right away. The first time I tried I fumbled with it for nearly 30 minutes. It really helps if you have slightly damp hair and use a 3 way mirror.
This style is a modified Crown Braid. Instead of taking the end of the braid and pinning it around the top of the head, the excess hair is gathered over the shoulder and finished off in a reverse French braid.
