If you have a little girl who doesn’t mind you playing with her hair, have a go at this gorgeous braided hair crown. My daughter loves the compliments she receives when we are out. It is also a very practical hair style for children with fly away hair as it picks it up and pulls it back off their face.


  • Comb
  • Hair elastic
  • Bobby pins


  1. Section off 3 strands of hair on the left hand side temple.
  2. Begin to braid by plaiting the 3 strands, then gradually adding in a piece of hair with each strand.
  3. Plait in a circular motion around the crown.
  4. You will likely finish up on one side with a long plaited tail. Coil the plaited tail around the head and secure with bobby pins.
  5. It can be hard to imagine what to do by instructions alone. If in doubt, youtube has some step by step videos to show you exactly what to do when braiding a hair crown as well.


Be patient and don't give up. I kind of stumbled across this when playing with her hair and ended up researching a bit more on youtube to see the ins and outs of how to do it visually.

  • I used to love doing mt daughters hair for school. I wish I had these ideas back then


  • I did this for my neice’s birthday as she loves Frozen!


  • I find it hard to imagine, but will definitely give this a go!


  • So cool! I wish I was this creative with my daughters hair when she was at school. It was a struggle doing her hair and my skills were minimal so I had to stick to quick and easy


  • Simply gorgeous! I like it so much, it looks extremely pretty.


  • We braided this for my daughter’s love of Frozen!


  • I really need to learn how to do all of these things so I can do it when my daughter’s hair is long enough.

  • I have done this one before

    • My girls get a lot of compliments when at the shops


  • I liked this and was confident I could do it. Until I read the instructions and saw it involves weaving hair into the braid. Looks fantastic

    • Just think of it as a spiral braid – I found it was easy to do when I didn’t over think it!
