How to create a half-crown braid in two minutes

 
Beautiful Braided Bun | takes less than 2 minutes! 
Here’s a video tutorial for one of my favourite hairstyles, the half-crown braid.
I wear this style a lot because it’s both pretty and practical. You can wear your hair down but the braids keep your hair back and away from your face. Plus it takes less than two minutes to do.
This hairstyle works on both curly and straight hair and you can find my picture tutorial for the half-crown braid in straight hair here.
  1. Start by taking a 1-2 inch section of hair on the left side of your hair above your ear. Split this section in three and make a braid (plait).
  2. Angle the braid back around your head and secure the end of the braid with a small clear hair elastic.
  3. Repeat on the right side, taking a section above your ear and making a braid. Secure the end with a small clear elastic.
  4. Bring one braid across the back of your head and pin in place with bobby pins.
  5. Cross the other braid over the first and tuck the end in behind the first braid. Secure with bobby pins.

Tips and Guidelines To Long French Braid Hair

This loose French braid tutorial is what my hair dreams look like. This braid tutorial is perfect for long hair or hair with long layers.

Last week I had the best time staying with the gorgeous Sonia of Sonia Styling. It was a blog-fest in Adelaide for Little Blog Big and in between planning and work I managed to shoot some new tutorials with Sonia.

It’s so much fun playing with someone else’s hair as I get to try more complicated styles. Not that this loose French braid tutorial is a difficult style, but I created some new looks that are not as easy to do in your own hair. Also Sonia has a lot of hair so it’s brilliant to style.

WHAT YOU NEED:

Small hair elastic
Bobby pin
STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Brush your hair before you braid to remove any knots or tangles.

Start your braid near your crown. Take a good-sized section of hair at the top of your head to your crown and split it into three.

Make a regular braid for 4 turns, then add hair from your hairline the way you would with a French braid. Sweep it back into your braid. Just pick up a section from the hairline, allowing the rest of your hair to fall next to the braid.

Do the same on the other side and add hair from your right side hairline.

Now continue the regular braid for another 2 turns then repeat stage 3 and 4 where you add in French braid sections. Make the sections as large or as small as you like. Keep it loose so that it sweeps across to the braid.

Finish in a normal braid (plait) and secure the end with a small hair elastic. You can cover the elastic with a piece of hair to conceal it.

Tips and Guidelines To Long, Healthy Hair:

1. Moisturizing!
Curly/kinky hair is naturally drier than straight hair–this is why Asians, Indians, Caucasians, etc “typically” have an easier time growing their hair. It is more difficult for the oils to travel down our hair strands since our hair is so curly. As a result, our ends hardly get any love! They get dry and brittle and then break off and get split. So we MUST moisturize constantly. And I mean DAILY! I could write a whole post about this, but until then make sure you do by deep conditioning about once a week or every other week. Also, moisturize your hair with water before you go to sleep. Sometimes we get wrapped up in using tons of products to add moisture to our hair– by why not moisturize with pure H2O! Makes sense, right?

2. Eating Healthy!
Our outer beauty is a reflection of our interior. If your body isn’t healthy, then your skin and hair won’t be. It truly makes a huge difference. I can attest to it first hand! Eating more veggies will have a major impact–they help you digest quicker, therefore giving you more beauty energy to go to your hair! I talk more about practical ways to be healthy here.

3. Taking Supplements
There are several supplements that help promote hair growth. The one I take is Biosil. It is all natural and it will help strengthen your hair, which will in turn help it grow and retain length. It also helps the growth of your nails, and contains collagen which helps to prevent wrinkles so that you have beautiful glowing skin! You can order it on amazon for about $17 in liquid form (you’ll get more for your money by buying the liquid form versus the pills because it’s more ounces). It tastes horrible lol but if you put 5 drops in some orange or cranberry juice you can barely taste it!

Hair care: the salon wagon taking the stigma out of fitting a wig

Demitri Jones (left) and Marc Deacon, who founded Wigz on Wheelz.
When clients of Demitri Jones, a former manager at the Cobella hair and beauty salon in Selfridges, expressed concern at wearing a wig in public for the first time, he would take off his badge and walk around the store with them to convince them that they looked natural.
“We would walk around and I’d say: ‘Look, no one is looking, no one notices, we’re just blending in with everyone around us,’” says Jones. “Katy Perry and Beyoncé wear so many different wigs, it has completely taken away any stigma associated with wearing one, but people are still worried.”
Jones, a stylist with 15 years’ experience specialising in wigs and hair extensions, has worked for celebrity clients and fashion weeks in New York, Paris, London and Milan, and has appeared on ITV’s reality show Models, Misfits and Mayhem, but he says it is his work with people with cancer and others who have hair loss that is the most rewarding.
This month, with his business partner and long-term boyfriend Marc Deacon, he launched Wigz on Wheelz, a mobile salon that specialises in hair loss. Jones travels to people’s homes or to hospitals in London and the home counties. The service caters for people with alopecia, trichotillomania – a condition in which a person feels compelled to pull out their hair – and hair thinning, and those undergoing gender reassignment.
“It is all about confidence,” says Jones. “Whether you are in a salon or a department store, if you are going through cancer treatment you are at your most vulnerable. Your hair falls out in patches. But you are surrounded by people getting blow dries and glamorous cuts.”
At Cobella, Jones worked with similar clients, but felt there was a market for a more private alternative. “We used to get hen parties and tourists coming in to look at wigs, and then you would get people who had just been through chemotherapy.”
Jones learned his trade from his mother, Lei, and her sister, Reena, both of whom were hairdressers, starting at the salon where his mum worked while he was still at school. His Aunt Reena, who died from breast cancer, wore an NHS wig, but, Jones says she hated it –”It was very poor quality.”
“There’s not a lot of help for cancer patients, in terms of where to go for hair loss,” he says, particularly when it comes to deciding whether to shave their heads. “It is a time when they have no control and the last bit of control is shaving.
“It’s not easy for anyone, no matter what age. Whether you’re seven or 70, a woman’s hair is her crowning glory, isn’t it? A young girl I went to see last week was in intensive chemotherapy. She had beautiful, thick, long brown hair. We discussed what was going to happen and whether she might want me to do it or someone in her family to do it. She was very emotional but she said: ‘I want you to do it.’ It’s a horrible thing to have to do, but I try to reassure people. I say: ‘This is not forever, this is just for now.’”

Why do older women always have short hair?

Age has taught me never to underestimate the importance of a decent haircut. Having ricocheted from one tonsorial disaster to another in my youth – including a DIY mohawk – I’ve found my signature style (a shoulder-length bob) and I’m sticking to it.
As I can testify, hair loses pigment, changes texture and becomes thinner as we get older; it basically needs more looking after which is why, presumably, older women tend to lop it all off. But while grey hair is coarser and dryer, the coarser bit can be quite handy when it comes to styling – it’s just key to make sure your hair is in tip-top condition. “The older you get, the weaker your hair can be,” says hairdresser and Pureology and Redken ambassador George Northwoo, whose A-list clients include Alexa Chung and Gwyneth Paltrow. “Ends get damaged, so it’s best to invest in a trim every eight weeks.”
Some hairdressers recommend a change of hairstyle for a quick age-defying boost and this can be a wonderful way to revitalise your image, but having a timeless cut that can be worn in a number of ways – I can tie my bob into a top knot – is my preferred option. Here are three of the best ageless hairstyles:

Living longer

As outlined above, there’s a belief that as you get older, hair should become shorter – that long hair equates to being either a try-hard cougar or a slovenly old hag. I’m a firm believer in doing (and wearing) what you like, rather than following generic rules and anyway, there are loads of elegant women with fabulous long hair to disprove this notion. In the grey-corner: Professor Wendy Dagworthy, stylist and beauty entrepreneur Linda Rodin, artist Helen Storey and model Daphne Selfe. In the non-grey corner: actors Julianne Moore and Meryl Streep, designer Vera Wang and creative director at US Vogue Grace Coddington.

Long hair has to be in good condition, as the celebrated colourist Josh Wood advises: “Hair treatments, masks, conditioners – whatever you want to call them – are a must in my book. Coloured hair needs to be treated like cashmere and washed with a gentle touch. Grey hair needs to look supple and shiny.” When I spoke to Wood on the phone and baulked at his suggestion of adding a weekly treatment to my low maintenance beauty regime, he rightly suggested that I could’ve been treating my hair while we were talking. Point taken. As Woods continues: “Go easy on the appliances, keep away from too strong a heat when using a hairdryer, and keep the use of tongs and irons to a minimum. The better you treat your hair, the better the condition – and the better you feel.”

And George Northwood recommends “switching up your regime” with Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo and Conditioner, and Pureology Strength Cure Fabulous Lengths, for long hair prone to breakage.

The tousled bob

Anna Wintour’s power bob may have ruled the fashion world for decades but the shorter, choppier version of this classic style feels fresher right now. Helen Mirren has a novel twist on the bob, which can also be messed up if the above feels a little staid: “This is the perfect way to update the traditional bob,” advises Northwood. “But it needs a lot of volume and texture. I would start by using a root-lifting spray on towel-dried hair and then rough drying the hair forwards. If you have a pair of tongs, just apply to a few random sections, then rub a finishing paste in your hands and apply through the lengths and ends to give a messy, matte finish. This is all about creating a textured DIY look.”

The grown-up crop

Chic as you like, the grown-up crop is another timeless option. Think Mia Farrow’s Vidal Sassoon cut in the 1968 film Rosemary’s Baby, Isabella Rossellini’s signature style and Julie Walters at the Baftas. “And Dame Judi is great example of an older woman who isn’t afraid of changing her style,” comments Andy Heasman, artistic director at Rush Hair. “Her pixie crop has been cut into a shorter style that gives her a cool edge. To create texture and movement, use a texturising paste and then work a bit of serum through the ends to give that red carpet shine.” Before going for the chop, Heasman recommends having a consultation with your hairdresser first. “It’s important to discuss what would suit your face shape and lifestyle before you take the plunge.” And it’s important to consider that although shorter, cropped styles have an effortless, wash-and-go appearance, they do require more upkeep. “Cropped styles grow out quite quickly and this means more visits to the hairdresser. To keep the style sharp, you’re probably looking at once a month.”

For added versatility, the longer, more Parisian version of the crop worn by Kristin Scott Thomas and French photographer Garance Doré looks equally glamorous. Heasman recommends a root lifting product to damp hair and using a round brush to create volume and lift on top, while making sure the sides remain flat. “It’s all about volume,” adds Heasman. “And this look shows that red-carpet hair doesn’t need to be long and flowing.”
