  3. Braid this piece in a regular way.
  4. Clip the right piece away.
  5. Get a new piece to replace the clipped away one. Cross this new piece over the central piece.
  6. Now take the left piece and cross it over the central piece. Then a new piece is brought in. This braid side will be braided in a French braid manner.
  7. Remember the clipped away piece? Bring it down. Take that new right piece and switch these two. The top piece should be brought under the piece that is beneath.
  8. Now the second piece should be clipped (this time above another piece) up and away.
  9. Take that new right piece, cross it over the central piece. Grab a new piece, cross this new piece over the central piece too. Like when you do a French braid.
  10. Now let’s work on the left braid side. Take the side piece, cross it over the central piece. Then grab a new hair piece.
  11. As for the right braid side, the clipped piece on top should be released. Cross this piece under the piece beneath. Then wrap that bottom strand up and clip it away.
  12. That new side piece should be crossed over the central piece and then that new hair section should be crossed into your braid.
  13. Continue braiding down in the left ear direction. Stop adding new hair pieces 1 inch above your ear.
  14. Braid this section down a bit more, tie it with an elastic.
  15. Make the braid a bit fuller by pulling on its edges carefully.
  16. Wrap this braid around your head. Grab a small hair piece under the very crown.
  17. Tie this piece to your braid for the braid to be secure against your head. The top hair will conceal the elastic.
  18. The elastic that is at the braid end should be removed and the braid should be unraveled.
  19. If you wish, smooth down your hair with a flat iron.

Twisted Crown Braid Tutorial

  1. This type of braid is quite easy to do, especially comparing to box braids, fishtail braids, and spiral braids. So, let us learn how to do it. The first step is to curl your hair with the help of a curling iron. Alternate directions as well as locks sizes when curling.
  2. To proceed with one of the simplest long hairstyles, part your hair to one of the sides. We will require two tresses to work with. The first tress will be taken from near the part on top of your head. And the second tress will be taken from below the first tress. Their size should be approximately the same.
  3. Now take the bottom tress and put it over the top tress. And it should be twisted around. Thus, tresses kind of switch their positions.
  4. Next, add one more tress to the bottom tress. Again, cross the tresses over so that they switch their positions.
  5. Continue braiding till your ear, and don’t forget to add one more tress from the bottom every time.
  6. When you reach the ear, stop to pancake the twists with your thumb and index fingers. Pull the twists from the outer side. Thus, they will become fuller and looser.
  7. Now continue on and just cross the two sections around to the very ends. Pancake the braid one more time to make the down part looser, too.
  8. Now when the braid is ready, take its end and adjust it from behind in a circular shape.
  9. Secure it with a bobby pin at the end of the half circle.
  10. Repeat the aforementioned steps to create one more braid at the same side.
  11. Using bobby pins, secure the second braid just below the first one, make its end face upwards.
  12. Criss cross the bobby pins so that they make an X shape.
  13. Now let us work with another side. Create a braid and lay it behind, covering the X shape made with bobby pins. And this braid should be situated between the first two braids.
  14. Finally, take its ends and let them down under the bottom braid. Pin it to secure.
