Crown twist tutorial

I know you’ve been sitting on the edge of your seats until I released the very deep dark secret on my now daily crown twist and now the day has finally arrived. Hallelujah chorus. Ok, so the real story is this: I had really short hair just a couple of years ago. We’re talking pixie. It was about the time that crown braids nearly exploded on the Internet. AND I was living in Scandinavia, which seems like it would be the most natural place in the world to do a crown braid. Needless to say, I was heartbroken that I couldn’t join in on the trend. I’ve been patiently awaiting the day that I could finally follow suit but in the mean time I needed to get my hair up in some sort of crown contraption. Last year, I figured out this little method which somewhat mimicked it. It first started with twists along both sides of the head and ended with a bun in the back. Now it’s become a full crown twist. Baby steps.

I suppose my crown twist has become a bit of a trademark (read: I do it every day) and some people have been asking how to do it themselves, thinking it must be fancy and long-winded. GUYS. The secret is that it’s a lazy man’s crown braid! It takes less than one minute! I promise! I don’t spend time on my hair at all and rest assured, if I ever show something that I actually make on the blog, it’s probably not a time suck. I just can’t handle spending time on most things.

SO, I present to you, the 1 minute crown twist that will change your life. Drumroll please…

And for those of you who don’t want to watch a minute long video, try these steps below.
