The braided crown is a great alternative to the headband or the mermaid braid. It's a definite 'it' style for the holidays. Here's your exclusive hair prescription from Hair Trend News to help you look even more stunning at your holiday parties than you already are.
Both braid and crown, this look is so visually appealing, it doesn't even need accessories. But for New Year's Eve we can make an exception – the only thing left to do is to choose what kind of braided crown you want!
One braided crown, a thousand possibilities
Whether you do it yourself or pop into the salon to have your hairstylist do it for you, the braided crown can be worn so many different ways. Long hair, for example, can be braided into a classic braid and then pinned up around the face by using bobby pins. Mid-length hair can opt for the French braid, and the girls with bob cuts can go for pigtails and then pin them up on the front and back of the head to achieve a braided crown look. No matter what length your hair is, one final idea is the half-braided crown, an elegant half-up half-down style. The choice is entirely yours – after all, you're the one wearing the crown!
Don't forget to make your crown shine
Once your braided crown is created, all you have to do is decorate it. Use flowered hairpins or pearled bobby pins for an ethereal look. If you'd really like to show everyone at the party who's Queen, consider carefully placing a tiara on top of your head. Once your look is complete, feel free to add a finishing touch of glitter spray, and of course, a generous mist of hairspray to keep the style intact.
