Where I live, summers are suffocatingly hot. Because of the humidity and heat, my hair normally finds it's way into a ponytail. However, this is a fantastic alternative to summer's signature hairstyle. This my friends, is a Braided Crown - the slightly more sophisticated version of Heidi Braids. However, I have to admit that I saw this first on A Cup of Jo.
Here is a little tutorial for this updo. You can either watch the video or follow the photos.
You're going to need some hairspray. My roommate in college got me hooked on this stuff.
You'll also need bobby pins, lots of bobby pins.
First, make two loose braids.
Wrap the first braid around the front of your head, fairly close to your hair line and pin in place.
Wrap the other braid around the back of your head and tuck the ends into the first braid.
This is what the other side will look like. You can twist your hair to cover the bare spots.
Now all you have to do is spray it all in place! Voila!
