Recently, I came across several amazing pictures, which reminded me of a hairstyle I hadn't tried in ages! The crown braid is a simple style, but very elegant!
Here's a view of the back.
For those with shorter hair, here's a variation: divide hair in half, and make two braids, starting each behind the ear. Then pin them across the front from both sides, overlapping.
A more casual crown braid...
This is a totally different look, but beautiful, too!
Here, Princess Grace of Monaco has hers in a smaller "circle."
Inspired you? I hope I did! Let me know what you think in the "comments" section. :) Especially in this summer heat, it's lovely to have new ways to style one's hair off one's neck!
