Twisted Crown Braid Tutorial

1 2 34

Are you not in love with this hairstyle?  I think my most favorite thing about the twisted crown braid tutorial it is it takes literally five seconds to do.  Okay so not literally but definitely less than five minutes.  I love half up styles and think they work so well when your hair is at an awkward stage.  I’m still missing my side braids but for the most part when I leave it down I feel like my hair is semi-long again.  There are certain styles I still can’t do that require me to pull my side pieces back so I’ve really been gravitating towards these halo type braids, I hope you love this one as much as I do!

First things first — You’re going to need a few good bobby pins, and by that I mean don’t use crappy walmart ones that fold on you every time you try to open them up!  The struggle is real my friends!  And then two elastic bands.


Step by Steps:

1)  Take a triangle section of hair near your part
2) Divide it into two sections
3) Add a new section of hair to the front piece
4) Add a new section of hair to the back piece
5) Twist the sections together with the front piece going over the back piece
6) Once you reach the back of your head, stop adding in new sections of hair and just twist the two sections until you reach the end and tie it off with a clear elastic.  Repeat on the other side
7) Take one of the twists and push your thumb and index finger through one of the gaps
8) Pull the other twist through the gap or hole
9) Finish off with a few bobby pins and take out the clear elastics

As always, a video tutorial for you!  Where would you wear this hairstyle? Would you wear it as an everyday type look or save it for those special occasions?!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing! I’ve always wondered how to do this! thank you thank you!

  2. Thanks for sharing excellent informations. Your web site is so cool. I’m impressed by the details that you have on this site. It reveals how nicely you perceive this subject. Bookmarked this web page, will come back for extra articles. You, my friend, ROCK! I found just the information I already searched everywhere and simply couldn’t come across. What a perfect web .

  3. Looks so easy! When I tried it, the twists we less than “oomphy.” Any ideas how to make the twists look thicker? My hair is thin on the sides (well, my hair is not really thick anyway). Trying to get away from using clip-ins so much.

    1. If you could curl your hair before or maybe sleep in a braid the night before your hair will have a lot more oomph. I have very thin hair also, and I’ve found this is the only way to give it any type of volume.

  4. Love this style. It is simple and lovely. I have long curly hair and want to wear my hair down but also out of my face. I am tired of just pinning it back or in a pony tail. Perfect for work or out with friends. Thank you!

  5. I love the braid look like this. It’s an added plus that it also gets your hair out of your face. To be honest, I usually put my hair in a ponytail when I need it out of my face. This looks easy enough to do, so I should give it a try.

  6. I am so addict to your tutorials. Fun to watch and pretty easy to do when i have seen your trics. I think you teach us so very well,thank you so much for that!

  7. Hey

    Gonna keep practicing now every day 😀
    Greetings Kim*

  8. Love this! Thank you so much for the tutorial. It is so romantic and feminine. It will be my new go to summer look.

  9. I have followed your blog for a little while and i love your styles. I am so excited for you and your family. I had triplets 6 months ago, 2 boys and 1 girl. Life is a crazy adventure.

  10. I love this!!! I just chopped my hair and totally understand the awkward length. I would love a tutorial for your curls. Every time I try to curl my hair, I turn into a triangle head

  11. How do you work up to washing your hair less often? I can only go for about 2 days before I must wash on day 3 because by then my hair is an oily mess. Please help!!

    1. I have the same problem! For me what worked well was a sebum regulating shampoo that cleans while helping the scalp find its balance. It has to be delicate, an aggressive formula will get rid of the oil on the moment but then it will come back even stronger, because it sort of shocks the balance of the scalp. I suggest you avoid very cheap shampoos, they never did me well. Personally I use naturally derived products, I believe the least toxic chemicals the better off my skin and hair will be. I have very long hair and I know washing them too often would weaken them, so I use a dry shampoo powder, mine from Bumble and Bumble absorbs the oil and gives volume to the roots. Hope this helped!
