french crown on me!
I finally effectively created a crown braid on myself! I say “effectively” because I wouldn’t call it truly successful, and I’ve by no means mastered it! I’ve tried it before a few times and ended in complete failure. I think the main reason it worked this time is because my hair had been flat ironed. Being straight made it easier to work with and keep smooth. There were also a couple technique alterations that helped. 1. different starting point and sectioning than when I braid on others, and 2. braiding loose. It was much easier to do the crown on myself by doing it loose. I didn’t have to worry about trying to flatten out all the bumps, I just worked with them. (I apologize for the poor quality of the photos, the bathroom has bad lighting.)
I used these two pics as inspiration.
