If you're looking for a stylish and worry-free summer updo, look no further than the braided crown. Summer is sure to bring plenty of events and opportunities where a braided crown is just the right hairstyle option- think: festivals, weddings, prom, graduation, and more. I mean, really, is there any event where we don't want to wear a beautiful braided crown?

Why try the braided crowd

Styling your hair into a braided crown is a great way to stay cool in the hot weather and it's versatile to boot! This romantic hairstyle looks as pretty with straight hair as it does with waves or curls and you can even throw in some pretty hair accessories (like bobby pins or flowers) for some added glitz and glamour!

Top tips for creating a braided crown

This style is best achieved with a little help from a friend or, at the very least, a couple of strategically placed mirrors. Section off some hair behind one ear (the braid is prettier when the beginning and ends aren't so noticeable) and begin French braiding in a clockwise direction.

Continue to braid, adding small sections as you go, until you've reached the beginning of the braid and then simply braid the hair normally until you reach the end. Secure the end of the hair and then lay the braid flat against your scalp and pin in place. Spritz all over with hairspray and you're finished.

Now you know how to create a braided crown, there's no excuse not to! What are you waiting for?
