fake a crown braid on yourself
I tried this and it works beautifully!
I was finishing it up literally as we were walking out the door so I didn’t get to tweak it like I wanted to. I didn’t realize how lopsided it was until I got home and took these pics. It turned out that way because I just pinned the braid tails on either side of the dutch braids, and the right one was thicker. If I’d had more time, I would have pinned it a little differently.
In spite of that, I think it looks awesome and I love the way it turned out! Like she says in the video, I agree that it looks like I have a lot longer hair because there are 3 layers of braid in some areas. I will definitely be keeping this one in mind since I’ve never really effectively been able to do a real crown braid on myself.
