Get the Look: Curly Crown Braid


Use your comb to create a deep side part

To condition and prep hair for easier braiding, spray Curl Renew Reactivating Milk Spray evenly through hair and comb through.


Pull out the front part of your hair

Clip the rest of your hair back, and divide it into three equal sections.


Start to braid by dividing the hair in the front into three sections

Then cross the front piece that’s on the outside, underneath. Every time you cross under, grab more hair that’s already out and then go under again.


Halfway down, stop braiding and secure with hair tie

Then, tuck the ends of the ponytail under your hair and secure with bobby pins.
