How To Get A Crown Braid — Expert Tips

Veep star Anna Chulmsky rocked a similar crown braid at the NYC premiere for Veep on April 6.

Braiding expert Sarah Potempa created the look, and is sharing her step by step below:

“1) Brush hair out with the SARAHPOTEMPA On Set Styling Brush to detangle hair.

2) Start in the lower back right of the hair and section out a clean semi-circle up. Clip remaining hair away with the SARAHPOTEMPA Darby Clips.

3) French braid by taking three pieces and going right over middle, left over middle, while adding pieces from the root. Continue to French braid along the hairline all the way around to the other ear. TIP: Release the Darby Clip when you get to the hairline to add that hair in.

4) Once all the hair is in the French braid, apply Aussie’s Miraculously Smooth Tizz No Frizz Gel to the ends to make sure all the layers get in the braid. Take the tail end of the braid, wrap it around to follow the braid and tuck it under and secure with hair pins.”
