Give Braids a Royal Touch with Ouidad

Braids have continued to weave their way into many popular hair styles this season and the trend doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. It’s no surprise that one of the most eye-catching braid trends has made its way from the runway to reality. The chic and elegant “crown of braids” may seem intimidating, but thanks to Ouidad, it can be easily accomplished with the help of a few key products.

Tips To Achieve a Crown of Braids:

  • With clean hair, run the Ouidad Double Detangler ($26 at Ouidad.com) through strands to get rid of any knots
  • Apply a nickel sized amount of Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel ($23 at Ouidad.com and Ulta.com) to the palm of hands and rake through damp hair, focusing the product on the middle to ends of hair
  •  It is ideal to braid hair once hair is dry
  • Divide hair into two sections on each side of the head
  • Braid the first side all the way to the end while coating each section with Ouidad Clear Control Pomade ($27 at Ouidad.com and Ulta.com) as you braid it
  • Bring the first braid over the crown of your head, like a headband, and secure with bobby pins
  • Repeat the process with the second section and bring across crown of head in the opposite direction
  •  Tuck the end of the second braid behind the first to ensure ends are hidden and use bobby pins to tidy up any loose pieces of hair

I look like a dork in braids. My daughter would look great with this look though!

I am so awful at braiding my own hair, but this look as great.
