being tressed: Crown Braid Tutorial

Whenever I can look like a mystical mermaid (or something like that) I am always game. The crown braid gets me there! This version is super easy and fun. I recently did it while on vacation in the tropics (man...I miss that). I love wearing my hair like this for a special event or a date night with Aaron. It's easy-as-pie, so why not? Have fun trying it out below! Be on the lookout for more hair tutorials in the future!

STEP 1: Part brushed hair in the middle. Take a small section of hair a few inches back and start to do a tight braid. Secure with a clear elastic.

STEP 2: Repeat this step on the other side.

STEP 3: Crisscross the braided sections in the back.

STEP 4: Create the look of a crown by overlapping the braids over each other. Secure with bobby pins.

STEP 5: Enjoy your mermaid hair!
