How to do a floral braided crown using clip-in hair extensions

 

 

Feeling the summer love? Getting your wellies ready to hit the festivals? We’ve got a gorgeous summery look for you to try today!

 

This pretty floral braided crown is a great way to use your clip-in hair extensions. It’s the perfect style for all your summer fun and looks just as good whether you plan on dancing the night away in a muddy field or glamming it up for a prom or summer wedding. Plus you can mix it up by choosing delicate pastel flowers for a softly romantic look, or big bright, bold ones to really stand out in the crowd.

 

Our favourite hair expert, Miss Alex, is back with one of her fab videos to show you just how easy it is to create this beautiful summer ‘do.

 

Let’s start by finding the things you’ll need.

 

You’ll need

 

 

Got everything you need? It’s time for your hair coronation!

Clip your extensions in

 

Start by clipping in your Lush hair extensions, leaving a layer of hair at the top of your head to cover the clips.  

 

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll be a pro at clipping your hair extensions in by now. But don’t worry if you’re new to this or just need a bit of a reminder, our first video from Miss Alex shows you everything you need to know – you’ll be a pro in no time.

 

 

Make some waves

Once you’ve clipped in your extensions, grab your curling wand or iron and start curling. Simply wrap strands of hair around the wand, hold for a few seconds, and release to get gorgeous loose waves.

 

If you’ve never created waves before, you can find out more about how to curl your extensions in our earlier post.

 

 

Time to braid

 

Now it’s time to make the braids that will go on to form your crown. First, create a middle parting with your comb by tracing a line up from your nose and carrying it on through your hair. This makes sure your parting is perfectly centred.

 

Now create a section of hair at the side of your head to braid. You might want to leave a small section of hair at the front to frame your face. Next, split your section into three strands for braiding. We’re just doing a basic braid here - taking the left section and placing it under the middle section, taking the right section and placing it under the middle section and repeating. Easy peasey.

 

Repeat this at least twice and then start gathering extra strands of hair to add into your braid. Just grab a strand from outside of the braid, add it to your braid’s outer strand, and place it all under the middle strand. Keep doing this until your braid has reached to just above your ear and then stop gathering in extra sections and return to basic braiding down to the end of your hair. Check out the video if that doesn’t make sense!

 

Now do exactly the same thing on the other side of your head. Make a section (leaving a strand at the front free if you want to frame your face), start off your basic braid, then gather some extra strands until you reach above your ear, before going back to basic braiding down to the end.

 

 

Add some volume

 

Before you make your braided crown, you may need to add a bit of extra volume to your look. Take your comb and gently backcomb the back of your hair to give it some more oomph.

 

You can also make your braids more voluminous by gently pulling the braids apart to open them up and make them look thicker.

 

 

Your crowning glory

 

Now for the fun part! It’s time to make your crown. Take your braids and wrap them around the back of your head like Alex does. Then secure them with your hair grips. Check in the mirror that you’ve covered your extension clips with your braids.

 

Now grab your flower clips and get creative! How and where you add them to your braided crown is really up to you. You can scatter them randomly through your hair for a relaxed look, place them in a straight line above the braids, or just add a couple of subtle rosebuds for a sophisticated look. It’s totally your call.

 

Now take your beautiful braided crown out for some fun in the sun! (or drizzle - we can work with what we’ve got, right?)
