Everyone should wear a crown at some point in their lives! Try this rope braid crown! Just follow along with my step-by-step tutorial.

Separating hair

1. Separate 2 sections of hair in the front

Using the pointed end of a comb, separate a section of hair on either side of your face, starting at about the halfway point on your head.

Push the rest of your hair out of the way, behind your shoulders. Then temporarily secure that extra hair in the back with a claw clip.

2. Twist-braid

On one side of your face, separate 2 small bunches of hair.

Twist them together, and then gradually add more hair to the section of the twist that’s closer to your face.

Continue this until you reach the point just beyond your ear.

Then continue from that point by twisting the two strands until you reach the end of your hair.

Secure it with a flat hair clip in the meantime.

3. Cross the twists in the back

Remove the flat clip and cross the 2 twisted braids at the back of your head.

Then, secure them in place with a decorative hair pin or 2.

Pull the ends of the hair under the hair pin(s) to make sure the hair lays straight and flat.
