HALF-UP BRAIDED CROWN

Happy Friday!

Lately, I have been totally obsessed with wearing my hair half-up half-down with a braided crown. It's so girly and yet it's different from your traditional half-up half-down hairstyle which I love. What's great about this hairstyle is that it goes with any outfit, whether you're going for a casual look, like what I am wearing above or if you are dressing up for a night on the town. It's also so quick and easy to do as well. I usually like to leave some of my bangs out along the sides of my face but I also like to switch it up and braid them back, which also looks really pretty. I also like to either curl or have my hair wavy when I do this hairstyle as it looks more put together but you can also wear your hair straight with the bangs braided back or your hair pulled into a low messy bun or pony tail which I like to do!

What is your favorite braided hairstyle?

Have an amazing weekend sweet readers, xo!!

  3. Aw that braid looks really good on you! It has that hippie girl vibe going on. I wish I was coordinated enough to be able to do that. PS: Love your flats.

  6. This is definitely an outfit I would wear and I love how your hairstyle gives it a special touch! I tend to braid a small section and pull my hair back into a ponytail if I'm rushed to get ready. Easy but gives it a little extra something!

    I have a new post I would love for you to check out!
