Wearing a crown French braid involves encircling the braid at the top of head, similar to a crown. This style of braid is sophisticated yet practical because it elegantly sweeps the hair away from the face. Crown French braids may be worn at weddings, formal dinner parties or proms.

  1. 1

    Brush the hair to remove any tangles.

  2. 2

    Part the hair from the back of the crown to the back corner of the ear using a comb. Gather a vertical section of the hair and keep the rest of the hair out of the way with a salon hair clip.

  3. 3

    Divide the vertical section of hair into three equal sections. Place the right section under the middle section, then place the left section under the middle section to create a braid. While braiding, add smaller sections from the head and larger sections from the scalp. This will form a braided crown around the head. Make sure the last sections of hair are lined up with the beginning of the braid.

  4. 4

    Hold the braid in place with a hair elastic and pin it to the head with hair clips.
