The best headband that a girl can sport is the crown braids. What better way to put up a pretty headband than with your own locks? It is a great way to pull up the hair and still look beautiful. It adds texture to hair and is so good for those summer days.
Like most hairstyles, the crown braid can also be brought up into a diverse number of styles. It is one hairstyle with different forms. There is always one that will just about suit and match what we are looking for.
Chunky and messy crown braids give a delicate look to the wearer. The loose wispy hair makes it look like it has been done in a rush yet the uneven and messy look goes. Add in small flowers along the crown to give it a finishing touch.
Big chunky braid around the head is gorgeous. A bouffant added to the usual one sets instant difference. In a loose chignon kind of way, the braids, instead of being wrapped all around, is gathered at the back. A few tendrils on the sides gives a toned down and not so rigid look to this one.
Two toned hair is such a trend at the moment. So how about a braid with a lighter tone wrapped round the head while a darker tone gives contrasting beauty at the base. An attached braid in a different tone can be used to get this style done. This is dainty and with the right make up, can look flawless.
It is not always necessary to have the hair done up as we would opt for summer. Moreover, who said crown braids are just for the summer, this hairstyle can be worn in any season. For the cooler days, how about a half up and half down style with the usual braid gong around?
For thicker hair, a neat tightly braided crown can begin at the side to go all the way around and then secured. Loose tendrils can fly away in wisps. That way, it will not appear too rigid.
