Struggle with braiding? You can still create this lovely braided crown hairstyle by dividing your hair into two sections and twisting them. It’s easier than braiding but still looks great. Credit: @megankeeverhair

4. Messy crown hair

Major #hairgoals right here, especially if you’re after a style that’ll allow you to channel off-duty vibes.

To get the look spot on, you’ll need to pancake your braid to create the illusion of a thicker plait. So, gently pull apart each section of your plait to make it looser and messy, and watch as your hair instantly becomes Pinterest-worthy. Credit: @brittsully
