Fabulously complicated-looking, this crown braid is just a variation of the basic style I’ve been using all week. Because this style is evenly distributed around your head, it is very comfortable and doesn’t cause headaches, like buns can do sometimes.
1. Make Luana braids.
2. Tie the two braids in a basic overhand knot at the base of your neck, like you were tying a shoe lace.
3. Weave one of the “long” braids up behind the little short section of braiding and pull it snug.
4. Pin the “long” where it crosses the section of braid near the top.
5. Wrap the braid over the top of your head and pin it so that it goes under the little section of braiding. If you have any braid left over, don’t worry about it just yet.
6. Repeat steps 2-5 with the other “long” braid.
7. Pin the two braids that are at the top of your head together near the part to keep them from slipping.
8. If you have any braid left, you can weave it over and under the braids that you have already pinned.
Here is the finished style from another angle. I neglected to, but you might need to pin the braids so that they stay together. You could embellish the style by weaving a ribbon or two through the braids.
