If you feel bored with your hairstyle everyday, the French circuit may be the right solution for you. But it is not just a French braid … it is a braid half the crown, framing your face. Believe it or not, it’s easy to do it yourself! Read on to view the simple tutorial.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Two bobby pins
- Hair clip
- Handheld mirror
- Hair tie (not pictured)
The first and perhaps most important step is to separate the area you will find. Use your comb to create a rectangular area of hair along the top of your crown. Keep this hair in front and use your hair clip to keep the rest of your hair away.
Starting from the left side of the rectangle, insert three strands of hair as a natural alternative. Start creating a French braid from left to right, using smaller clips than if you have completely braced the head.

Continue to your right ear.
Make sure to put the braid behind your ear so you can easily hide the screws later.
Once you reach your ear, stop the French braiding and continue in a natural braid for a few inches and secure it with a hair clip. If your hair is like my hair, use your fingers to loosen a little braid, focusing on the top of your head.
Then, attach the braid to your scalp using hairpins. Place them directly over your ears and cover them in x until they stay in place.
Remove the hair clip and hair clip and place the rest of your hair on your ear so that it covers the hair pins. Finish with light hair stabilizers to secure braid and tame ruffles.
That’s it, we’ve finished braid half the crown! The more you do, the easier it is … you know what they say – practice makes it perfect!
Here comes from above … Give your hair a serious and appropriate style for informal and wonderful occasions. One of my friends wore this style at a wedding recently and it was beautiful!
