Stumped on how to style your hair this weekend? Then Savoir Flair is here to save the day with this GIF tutorial on how to create a beautiful boho braid crown — the perfect plaited style for a weekend soirée or a dinner with friends. Teaming up with the hair experts at Marquee, we made this complicated-looking ‘do simple and achievable in just eight easy-to-follow steps. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to boast your best braid ever.
Section your hair from the desired side to behind your ear, around two inches wide.
Take a small section, one inch in depth, from the top and split it into three smaller sections.
Take strand 1 and wrap it underneath strand 2, so strand 2 then becomes strand 1.
Take strand 3 and wrap it underneath strand 2, so strand 2 then becomes strand 3.
Repeat step 3, adding a small section from the left side to strand 1.
Repeat step 4 by adding a small section from the right side to strand 3, and so on until you reach behind the ear and secure with a pin or band.
Gently pull each part of the braid to loosen and create a more relaxed look.
To finish the style, secure the braid to the hair with spray and pins.
