Prom season is upon us, and with the social activities of summer like weddings and family gatherings not far off, an easy and chic way to wear your hair down is your secret weapon in standing out at the formal parties of the season. That’s where the Crown Braid style comes in – a sexy, simple twist on a bohemian favourite, perfect for summer.
The beauty of this braid is its ability to act as both a summery, dressed up look that can be worn day and night. It’s the perfect match to an evening gown or summer dress, and gives you the chance to wear your hair down to even the classiest of parties.
To personalize the look, decide how dramatic the crown section itself will be. You have the flexibility to make it as thick or thin as you like, and choose whether it will come across your entire head or just a little to accent the flowing braid that will ultimately rest on the side of your head. For a daytime look, start the braid just slightly off to one side from your usual part, for soft and seamless flow into the side braid. To dramatize the look, start the braid from one side of your head and work your way across to create the full crown from one side to another as it leads into your long, flowing braid.
Individualize the look even further by playing with different sized braids, leaving some hair out, or experimenting with different style braids such as the ever-popular fishtail. As always, finalize the look with the perfect choice of makeup, and you’ll be ready to make a splash wherever you go.
Let your hair down in style – take on the summer with this beautiful take on the bohemian braid!
