Hairstyle From Three Angles: Crown Braid Ponytail



A little hair inspiration to start the new work week…

One day several weeks ago (pre-haircut), I opted for a tidy but interesting hairstyle at the office. (Is it just me or do braids have a summery vibe? Perhaps it was wishful thinking!)

Regardless, this was a fun way to liven up a basic outfit, and perfect if you are growing out bangs or layers, so I thought I would share.

Step one: side part a two-inch section of hair.

Step two: french braid the section, guiding it around the crown until you pass your right ear, then switch to a regular braid all the way to the bottom. Tie off with a mini-elastic.

Step three: make a ponytail with the rest of your hair.

Step fourLoop the braid around the ponytail to cover the elastic.  Secure the end of the braid with a hair-toned bobby pin under the ponytail.





Voila! Not too hard if you have medium to long hair and can do the french braid. I might try it out with one or two small, standard braids.

Have a happy start to the week!
