HOW TO CREATE

Step 1: For the half up flower crown, begin with damp hair and massage through a texturising mousse.

Step 2: Next, depending on the thickness of your hair, split it into 4-6 sections and braid each one. Blow-dry these sections until dry, then undo for loose, beachy waves.

Step 3: Create a deep side part to one side. On the heavier side, divide the front section of your hair into three pieces, ready to braid.

Step 4: Begin your braid! If you can dutch braid, this will look best. If not, a french braid or normal braid will work as well.

Step 5: Once you reach the end of your hair, secure your braid with an elastic. Then use your fingers to gently loosen the braid for a fuller ‘crown’ look.

Step 6: Then wrap your braid around the back of your head as far as it will go and secure it with as many bobby pins as necessary.

Step 7: Repeat steps 3-6 on the other side – note the second braid may overlap the first one. Once both braids are secure, cut the elastics with small scissors and tuck the ends of each braid underneath your braid crown, securing them with bobby pins.

Step 8: Pin any stray strands and secure your braids with a stronghold hairspray to ensure they last all day long. For a super-cute finish, pin in your favourite flower accessories and there you have it – the cutest V-Day look ever!
