Crown braids can be truly amazing and can change your image easily. All you need to do is learn how to make them the right way. There are many different crown braid variations out there. A right braided hairstyle can make you look younger or older, brighter or duller, shy or expressive. Even if you don’t have enough hair to create a full-time braid around your head, you can still enjoy the effect by making a smaller braid or using a weave.
Crown braids aren’t very popular, that’s why it is very easy to make a unique one and stand out from the crowd. For those of you who haven’t seen too many braids and don’t know how to go about making one, we’ve come up with a short list of alluring options.

3. The classics
A classic fishtail braid is a great place to start. You will need to make a regular braid using all of your hair and then arrange it around your head like a crown. Make it stay in place by using clips.
If your hair is thick enough, you can go for two crown braids. Make two regular braids and wrap them around your head in two different directions. The result will be amazing.
If you are making a braid for a special occasion, you can use nice accessories to make your image brighter. Clips with large crystals will look good when randomly attached to the braid.
6. Colored crown braid
If you want your braid to make a great impression, you can dye it some outrageous color. The most popular shades are pink and purple but you can pick anyone you like.
7. Braid mix
If you are making a two-braid exhibit, you can use different types of braid. Make one regular braid and one fishtail. The combination will look fantastic. Try three different braids too.
8. Braid flowers
If you are preparing for a special occasion and want a romantic image, you can make a thin crown braid while leaving most of your locks down. Create flowers in the back of your head using the braid.
9. Around the beehive
If you want your hairstyle to look impressive, you can create a beehive on the back of your head and surround it with a braid. It will look as if you have specially decorated cap.
10. Crown heart
This is a great way to combine a crown braid with other hairstyles. Take a look at the photo. You will need to make two braids that meet on the top to form a crown.
11. Curly Crown Braid
If you want to add your crown braided hairstyle that extra oomph, curl your locks, lift them up and clip them securely. They will look like a natural extension of your beautifully made braid.
12. Thin crown braid
This is a good option for girls with thin hair who still want a surrounding braid. You will need to take just one strand and make a thin braid that will run around your head. Clip it securely to the rest of the hair.
13. Braided helmet
The next step from the crown braids is a helmet. Make several braids and arrange them in circles all over your head. It will look as if the braids are forming a cap or a helmet.
14. Crown Braid With A Bun
A great addition to a loose runaround braid will be a bun. You can make it by loosening the bottom part of the braid or leaving some locks down to create a separate bun.
15. Loose Braid
Create a windblown look by making a nice and loose crown braid. Tight braids usually create a tight image. If you want to look lighter and younger allow some messiness to creep into your style.
16. Crown Braid Hairstyle With Layers
Instead of arranging the braid around your head you can place it in layers on top of it. It will make your hairstyle appear more voluminous and will diversify your image without much extra hassle.
Girls with thick hair will appreciate this crisscross style. You will need to make two braids and crisscross them with each other while arranging them around your head. The result will exceed all expectations.
18. An easy shot
A crown braid can actually be a fast way to arrange your locks when you are having a really bad hair day. While ponytails might be considered too dull, a runaround braid is not much harder to make but looks much more impressive.
19. Crown Braid + Fishtail
Fishtails always look much more interesting than regular braids. So, consider the combination used in this photo. You can combine two braids in the back to create a good extension of the front braid.
20. Choose the right earrings
A crown braid can make you look very plain especially if your locks are not too thick. Balance out your image by choosing the right earrings. Your ears are open, so wear large accessories.
21. Messy tresses
A messy braid doesn’t look too impressive. But you can create an amazing image by messing up just the top part of the runaround braid. Depending on the right makeup, your look can vary from romantic to gothic.
22. Highlights with crown braids
If you want your braid to look unique, use highlights to outline it. If your locks are dark, make the braid lighter or vice versa. No matter which crown braided style you choose, the highlights will make it special.
23. Reversed crown
If a runaround braid seems too much for you, go for a reversed crown by arranging your braids on the bottom part of your head. You can lift it up later to make an impressive crown.
24. Pull it out
If you are going for a wild image, you need to get away from the strict appearance that the tight crown braids can make. It is easily done by pulling some locks out of the braid and loosening it up a little bit.
25. Get a Weave
If thick and voluminous braids are out of your reach, you can still get them by attaching a weave. Hair extensions can help you make the largest braids you always wanted and change your image for the better.
If you have found the braid you really like, the time has come for an image change. If not, you can try the classics first and perhaps you’ll get pulled into the process. Crown braids are a lot of fun. Don’t rob yourself of such an image-changing opportunity.
