I brought you a braided crown . . .
I hear Hurricane Irene is two hours away from NYC, so this princess is trapped
in her castle tonight. But that's OK. I'm going to take this time to (drink a big glass of
pino grigio) show you how I wore my hair earlier this week: up in a braided crown.
I stumbled across this photo of Mary Kate (or Ashley?)
and decided this hairstyle is possible, even for the most hair-challenged.
What I suspect you'll need:
+like 6 bobby pins
You'll want your locks relatively clean (or dry-shampood) to get the most volume.
The thicker the braid, the better.
1: Her hair (above) is parted down the middle, but I think it looks romantic (messier)
parted down the side (and this really works if you wake up with a huge zit on the
left side of your forehead & you need coverage). See:
2: Separate your hair in two sections. Braid the first side up and along side your head.
Once the braid is draped over the crown of your head, secure with two bobbypins.
