Continue braiding down your hair even after you’ve finished creating the Dutch braid. Repeat on the other side. This style looks best when you pancake your braid for a loose and effortless effect.

Secure Your Braids

Finish the crown effect by pinning the ends of your braids up with bobby pins, This will give the effect that the braid goes all the way around you head and makes for a more sophisticated style. We love leaving baby hairs out for extra texture. You can tame them by using a little bit of Bed Head by TIGI Wax Stick so they stay in a chic position.
