2 min hairstyle – half crown braid in curly hair – video tutorial

Hair Romance - Braided Half Crown hairstyle tutorial video

Here’s a new video tutorial for one of my favourite hairstyles, the half crown braid.

I wear this style a lot because it’s both pretty and practical. You can wear your hair down but the braids keep your hair back and away from your face. Plus it takes less than two minutes to do!

This hairstyle works in both curly and straight hair and you can find my picture tutorial for the half crown braid in straight hair here.

What you need: 2 clear hair elastics and bobby pins

  1. Start by taking a 1-2 inch section of hair on the left side of your hair above your ear. Split this section in three and make a braid (plait).
  2. Angle the braid back around your head and secure the end of the braid with a small clear hair elastic.
  3. Repeat on the right side, taking a section above your ear and making a braid (plait). Secure the end with a small clear elastic.
  4. Bring one braid across the back of your head and pin in place with bobby pins.
  5. Cross the other braid over the first and tuck the end in behind the first braid. Secure in place with bobby pins.

    Hey Christina thanks for sharing such a wonderful post. The hair styles that are showing in the blogs are really very creative.

  2. Lindsey says

    Love this! I have natural curly hair- what are your tips and tricks for your beautiful curls? Products? Blow dry? Etc? Any advice would be awesome!

  3. Christie says

    Wow, I just stumbled upon your site and am loving all of your great tips!! I am one who went through most of my life not knowing what to do with my hair and I am slowly learning the basics. Could you tell me how you finagle bobby pins so they will stay (my wavy hair is pretty fine) and so they won’t be so obvious?? Thanks!

    • Hair Romance says

      Hi Christie, thank you so much! I find it helps to turn the pin as you insert it so that it goes under the hair and hides better. This is hard to explain but I’ll make a video soon to show you what I mean :)
