The crown braid is the perfect accessory for Fall! Whether you want to keep your hair up and out of your face, you are going to a wedding, or simply want a sweet style for back to school, this is the look! Follow along below to see how Valerie Alessandro completed this look and how you can too! 




1.      Prep the hair using a dry shampoo or texture spray to give the hair some grip. I used Wind Blown 05, by Redken.


2.      Section the hair in two, start a Dutch braid from the bottom up on either side. I used Braid Aid 03 by Redken while braiding to keep the braid smooth and free of flyaways.“Pancake” each braid and pull the sections outward to give it a messy look.


3.       Place each braid around the front of the head and use bobby pins to hold it in place.



Finish the look by applying a spritz of Triple Take 32 all over to lock the style in place and keep hair from getting frizzy!
