Let The Hair Posts Begin!
I’m so excited to share with you my first hair tutorial. I mentioned at the first of the year that I was going to begin beauty posts in 2014 because it’s one of the most requested topics I get. I respond to many questions via tweets, comments, emails, etc. about my hair care process and styles which has led me to today.
I’ve had difficulties finding long hair tutorials before so I hope these will help all of you with long hair.
Long Hair Swedish Crown Braid Tutorial
Crown Braid Instructions:
- Start with clean, dry and untangled hair. (Use a wide tooth comb to untangle your hair) Starting in the front left side of your head, at eye level, separate the hair into three sections and start braiding.
- Braid your hair so that no hair is left loose. How to braid your hair: Take your three sections so that two strands are held in one hand and the third strand is head in your opposite hand. Create a few rows of a regular braid by taking the strand on the right and crossing it over the center. Then take the strand from the left and cross it over to the center. Before repeating your cross-over motion, gather a little bit of additional hair from the top side, and add it to this section; now cross this larger portion of hair over the middle section of the braid. Than repeat.
- Work your way around your head horizontally making sure no strands are left out.
- Keep braiding until you end up on the right side of your head. The braid should still be at eye level.
- Finish braiding it into a regular braid and pulling the hair up while braiding and secure the end with a rubber band.
- Pull it across your head and secure with bobby pins. Pin wherever necessary and make sure you hide the ends very well so it can look like a continuous braid. Finish your swedish crown braid with aerosol hairspray.
