If you want to differ from everybody by having an original updo that will transfer your daytime look to an elegant evening one, then hurry up to learn the twisted crown braid updo tutorial, which will make you stand out in the crowd. This hairstyle can be achieved with both long and medium length hair. With this particular updo, you can head for any special occasion, be it a wedding, a prom or a simple cocktail party.
Twisted crown braid updo is a unique hairstyle, which will make you look like a real Greek Goddess. The crown braid is both elegant and comfortable, since you have your hair up and there is nothing to bother you during the hot summer season, when even a single touch of hair with the neck or shoulders irritates you and makes hair wet. It is indeed a clever solution to hair when you have tried almost every hairstyle and seek something new and fresh. To learn the basics of this hairstyle, follow the tips below.
To start with, take a section of hair from your ear part, starting right above it and divide it into two sections and start twisting them. Once you twist the hair twice, you should add hair to the base of each section. Keep on twisting not in the direction of the same ear, but on the opposite one, that is clockwise, covering your crown part and making your way towards the opposite ear. First take some hair and add it carefully to the bottom section, twist it, and now take hair for the other section, which has now become the bottom one, twist again.
Keep on repeating the procedure by constantly adding hair till you reach the back of your head. Once you are on the opposite ear area, switch your hand and start adding hair with your right hand, which will make the task easier for the back part of your head. Now you have twisted the hair and reached the start point that is near your ear. Again switching hands twist the remaining of the hair tightly. There is no more hair to be added at this point, but still keep on twisting the hair tips that you have in your hands. When you finish twisting, you will get a second twist now, which needs to be put right behind the first twist in front of your head. So by using bobby pins, tuck the twist under the main twist and secure the latter with the pins. Secure the hair in several spots to keep it tight. Adjust the twist if necessary.
This fantastic hairstyle is similar to an entire braid that covers all your head from the crown to the back. The only difference is that you do not have three sections here. When working with two sections, it is much easier than a regular braiding, since you can twist the hair on your back without getting confused in the sections.
Also this twisted crown braid can be compared with a headband tuck, with the only difference that you are not using a headband, but working with the bare hair only.
Keep this easy updo in mind and use it on convenient occasions. Feel free to wear a nice décolleté and an evening makeup for a complete glamorous look. Good luck!
