If you know how to do a fishtail braid, you already know how to put it up into a Fishtail Crown Braid hairstyle. Just part your hair into two halves (it looks the best when you middle part your hair) and do fishtail braiding on either of the sides. Secure the braids and pull hairs from the braids here and there to give them an out-of-the-bed, textured finish. Now just bring your braids up to wrap them around the head. Secure the braids with bobby pins and it’s done. Get the tutorial at ‘Home Heart Craft’.
Dutch Crown Braid:
If you are a beginner, no matter. You can learn this Crown Braid Hairstyle very easily and can rock it with equal ease. Side part your hair to start off doing the Dutch braid and continue adding hair strands to the braid until you reach your left ear. From there just turn right and continue doing the braid to wrap around the crown of your head. Do the same thing until you reach your right ear, that is, keep on adding little bit of hair to the braid and keep on Dutch braiding. Right after you reach your right ear, switch to the normal three-strand braiding until all the hair gets into the braid. Now secure the braid with bobby pins and pull hair strands from the braid to give it more volume and fullness. Finish off the style with setting it with some good hair setting spray.
You can wear dainty hair accessories to make your Dutch Crown Braid look more attractive and party-ready.
