I had bangs years ago and as I was growing them out, I apparently invented a new braid?
Anyway, this has become my favorite way to wear my hair (when I have the time to do it) and I often get compliments and questions on how I did it.
So here’s how! (apologies for the number of photos, it is super hard to get a photo that shows the whole braid, especially by myself!!)
It’s just a basic french braid that you make in a spiral around your head. It takes a while to figure out how to make the spiral, but once you’ve got it, its pretty easy.
Will try to make an actual video of the process someday….
And the process:
start with a diagonal side part
grab a small section and start a classic french braid
once you reach the crown of the head and the end of the part, your inside sections will be very small and fan out from one point
stay as close to your hairline as you can to get the best crown look
this is where you’re going to have to start to readjust your grip
once you reach the back you’re going to have to change your grip as you go across the back of your head
once you get to the other ear you will have to readjust your grip again
this last part is done upside down
finish the braid, wrap into a bun and pin to your head
I’ll have to try that.
