I love the crown braid. I wore a crown braid to work the last two days and got lots of compliments. I do have to say that I do a kind of boho chic version. I start at my right temple, round the back, with a French braid and only adding hair at one side. The result is a a little poof, a little messy and very much cute. I love how comfortable it is and it holds well. I'll try and upload a picture (no picnic for the mobile lhc-er) or post a link to the photo I used as an example.
