Twisted Crown Braid Tutorial

February 11, 2015

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?!

  • This is amazing and would definitely work with my long bob!

    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!!

    • Marianna

      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!

    Incredibly beautiful!

  • 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.

  • I love all your braids and I find your instructions easy to follow.
    Thank you

  • 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!

  • Tɦis is a topic that’s near to my hеart… Thank you!

    Exactly where are your cߋntact details though?

  • HeidiJ

    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.

      I love these DIY hairstyle tips and have shared some tips on my blog as well.

    • Brandi Payne

      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.

  • 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.
