Crown Braid Black Hair: How to Do it Right
For beginners, start off by doing normal braids and once you are perfect at it, doing crown braid is no big task.
1. Start off with parting your hair in the center. Divide the hair into two sections. Secure one side of hair with a hair claw while working on the other. This will make your work easier.
2. Start at the nape of your neck and split working on into 3 sections.
3. Cross each of the strands underneath each other. Make sure to keep the hair tight to get the perfect braid. Do the same on the other side of the hair too.
4. Now time to create the crown! Pull one the braids from right to left, over the forehead and secure it with bobby pins. Now, pull the other braid and secure it against the first braid. The crown braid is ready!
