Crown braids are nothing new, but they’re typically associated with music festivals and bohemian fashion. The perfect hairstyle for summer (especially those hot and sticky nights when you want your hair off your neck) it’s a beautiful option for a black tie wedding. I’ve teamed up with Jennie Kay Beauty to share a crown braid tutorial that’s perfect for those fancy summer parties and weddings. See the full black tie wedding outfit here.

1. Grab pie section of hair at the crown and tease with teasing comb.

2. Starting in the back of the head braid upward around side of head. Where you start should depend on the length of your hair. If your hair is longer start at the opposite ear. The farther over you start the bigger the braid will be.

5. Leave out a few pieces as you braid towards the front.

7. Use hair wax to help hold the ends of the braid in place. For layered hair you can use more wax to keep strands in place.

  2. This is gorgeous!! The one time I had a braid crown, the girl did it so tight and I hated how it looked, but this one is so much more loose and bohemian! Love it 🙂
