Hey guys! The crown braid has always been one of my favorite hairstyles. It can be worn with every hair texture and (most) lengths, and can even be worn with your hair halfway up. Instead of always wearing it with a french or dutch braid, try it this way with a twist braid.
If you saw this hairstyle on my instagram (@missysueblog) then I’m happy to say I’m finally sharing the tutorial with you today! This is inspired by HairandMakeupbySteph who has always been an inspiration to me. Don’t forget to like and subscribe for new videos! Thanks for stopping by! xo, Missy
Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair on the right side.
Step 2 / Divide out a section of hair at the crown, twist it together and pin it at the back of the head.
Step 3 / Now divide the rest of the hair into a left and right side.
Step 4 / With the hair on the left side, divide out a section of hair to frame the face, then pick up a section and divide it into two smaller pieces.
Step 5 / Then cross the left strand over the right.
Step 6 / Add in a new section to both sides, twist each section towards the face and then cross the left strand over the right strand.
Step 7 / Then add a new section into both sides again, twist the sections toward the face, and cross the left strand over the right strand.
Step 8 / Repeat those steps, crossing the left strand over the right strand while adding new sections into both sides, twisting the sections towards the face, and working down the left side of the head until all of the hair from the left side is added in.
Step 9 / Once all of the hair is added into the twist, continue twisting the section down to the ends, then tie off the end with an elastic band.
Step 10 / Now repeat those steps and create a second twist braid with the hair on the right side.
Step 11 / Once both braids are done, take the ends and remove the elastic bands from the ends of the braids.
Step 12 / Wrap them up along the opposite sides of the head, criss-crossing them at the top and pin them in place with bobby pins.
A trip to the Amalfi coast has been on my bucket list for years! We made this trip last Fall and I was finally able to put together this quick travel diary. We spent a week on the Amalfi coast and three days in Rome. It was an amazing trip and I can’t wait to go back again!
Today’s tutorial is a hairstyle that every girl should know how to do. It’s perfect for all year round and never goes out of style. If you have already mastered and love the french braid then the next braid on your list should be the dutch braid.
This is a look I wear all the time but have never shared a stand alone tutorial for it. I love hearing how my tutorials have taught you different styles and techniques so I hope you take that away from this video as well. Try it out and share it with your friends; I’m sure they’ll love it if you do. Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy
Dutch Side Braid Supplies:
Clear elastic band
Dutch Side Braid Instructions:
Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair on the right side.
Step 2 / Divide out a section of hair to frame the face.
Step 3 / Pick up a section on the left side of the part and divide this into three pieces for the braid.
Step 4 / Start the dutch braid by crossing the right strand under the middle strand. Then cross the left strand under the middle strand.
Step 5 / Now cross the right strand under the middle, pick up a new section and cross it under and into the middle.
Step 6 / Then cross the left strand under the middle, pick up a new section and cross it under and into the middle strand.
Step 7 / Repeat those steps, crossing the side strands under the middle strand while bringing new sections into the braid, keeping the braid along the left side of the head.
Step 8 / Once all of the hair from along the part line is brought into the braid, then start adding in hair from the right side of the part, sweeping it around the back of the head adding it into the braid.
Step 9 / Then once the braid reaches the nape of the neck, and all of the hair is brought into the braid, then continue braiding the section a little further down and tie off the end of the braid with an elastic band.
Step 10 / Now go back over the braid, pulling on the edges to make the braid wider and more full.
Step 11 / Then set the style in place with a medium or firm hold hairspray.
*Tip: If little pieces fall out of the braid, at the back of the head, use bobby pins to pin them into the back of the braid.
Today’s tutorial is a hairstyle I’ve been personally trying to master.
Whenever I did it, the braid would always end up a little bit lopsided somehow. I think I finally figured out a trick to help it lay more smoothly against the head though.
It’s such a great hairstyle when you want to wear your hair down but keep the front pieces from falling in your eyes. It’s especially perfect when you’re growing out bangs. I’ve been tempted to cut a fringe lately so it’s something I randomly think about (:
Today’s tutorial is three, easy hairstyles that include a half up, low bun, and ponytail. The concept behind these styles is one of my favorites because the first one leads into the second and third styles. Basically you have to do the first one to do the second and third so it’s perfect for whatever you’ve got planned for that day. Quick transition from down to up. What do you think?!
