Victoria Justice just found our new favorite half up, half down hairstyle for summer — the crown braid. The actress and singer shared a new take on the classic boho style. Find out how to get it for yourself!
We were stuck on the half up, half down top knot every celebrity has been sporting this summer, until now. Victoria Justice, 22, showed off the cutest crown braid style on July 9 you need to give a try. Check out how you can recreate her look below.
Victoria shared her swoon-worthy braid on Instagram, with the caption: “My first time trying a crown braid, courtesy of @polkohontas ✌️.” How cute is she? It may have been her first attempt at the braided style, but the beauty buff knocked it out of the park thanks to Laura Polko.
Since you’ll only be braiding half of your hair, it’s important to create major volume if your hair is on the thinner side. Start on second-day hair, and sprinkle Fudge Urban Powder Styler on the front sections, rubbing it into your hair to give roots a boost and add grip to make braiding easier.
Divide your hair into two sections in the front (leaving half your hair loose in the back). Braid one side of your hair, and use your fingers to mess it up a little bit for a looser braid. Bring the braid across the top of your head and secure with Scunci No-Slip Grip Bobby Pins, which you can match to your hair color to keep them hidden. Repeat on the other side, and finish with a light-hold hairspray.

Laura left the rest of Victoria’s hair straight in the back, but you could do loose waves as well. For her makeup, Victoria kept it understated with nude lips and a soft smokey eye.
