This hairstyle uses the twist technique to depict a braided look. It's fairly simple and suitable for short to long hair length. Refer to the step-by-step instruction to learn how to make a twisted crown braid.
Take a section of hair near your part. Divide it into two sections
Add a new section of hair to the front piece. Add a new section of hair to the back piece
Twist the sections together with the front piece going over the back piece. Once you reach the back of your head, stop adding in new sections of hair and just twist the two sections until you reach the end and tie it off with a clear elastic.
Repeat on the other side. Take one of the twists and push your thumb and index finger through one of the gaps.
Pull the other twist through the gap or hole. Finish off with a few bobby pins and take out the clear elastics
