I just did a perfect crown braid! I'm on my way to a massage, so it didn't matter how it looked, but it came out amazing.

Congratulations, but no picture? For shame!

Congrats I'm happy you made it. Maybe you can post pictures next time.

I agree there needs to be a picture, you tease :p

Pictures, pleeeease. :flower: A crown braid is so far away for me that I have to enjoy other people's vicariously.

Nice work! They certainly aren't easy to get perfect... I've been trying and trying for years now! A perfect one is few and far between. :D

Yay! Crown braids are so exciting!!!

Thank you!

wish i could do that :(

I get one to work once every so often when the planets align just so... Even then I still have to pin the braid shread to death. Great job!

October 9th, 2013, 08:28 PM
Man, I wish I could do that! It looks awesome, we need a shot of the back too!!

Looks really good! I wish that I could do those kind of braids, but my hair gets into a tangled mess then I give up.

Very nice!

I just make horrible snarls when I try to crown braid. I can't keep it straight in my head what my hands are supposed to be doing. I'll be good, and then I'll get just a little distracted, and BOOM it's all a mess. *sigh*

Looks good and I'm so happy you are getting a massage to take care of yourself. I hope you enjoyed it.

So 'in' right now, according to the New York Times:


Looks great!

Thanks everyone! I'll try to get a pic of the back this morning. I slept on it last night. :)

Good for you!
I can get 3/4 way around, then the last hand switch messes me up! It ends in a bun over my ear!

October 10th, 2013, 07:15 AM
I find that not looking in the mirror when the hand switch takes place is the easiest way for me to do it...

Good job, Vanilla!

That's got to be one of the most comfortable hairstyles ever, too. I can't do "the real thing" like some of you people here, I can only do a "wrapped braid" crown, aka "a fake crown braid". And now that I'm older and my hair is even thinner, it doesn't work so well any more. Boo. :(

October 10th, 2013, 10:43 AM
Yay! It took me months of practice before I could leave the house in one. Now I can manage to do a good crown braid every 3-4 times I try! They are really challenging!

Beautiful! Looks very elegant.

Thank you everyone. I did manage to get a shot of it from the back; I'll upload it later.

October 11th, 2013, 10:38 AM
Can't wait to see the back shot! :)
