2. Crown Braid
If you go to a music festival you’ll likely see a sea of beautiful people rocking beautiful crown braids. That’s because this look is hippy chic and also modern and fun. It keeps hair off your face and neck, without looking too stiff. Isabel Guillen, a stylist and braiding expert with the John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf Goodman, in New York City, explains that all you need to do to create this look is to “separate hair into two low pigtails. Braid both sections and secure with clear elastics. Next, pull one braid up over your head and bobby pin it an inch back from your hairline. Repeat on the opposite side, positioning the second braid behind the first.”
