The braided crown is a classic style. It's typically a very neat style but you can change the look up by wearing it in a more relaxed way. Not only is this messier look much easier to style but it also has the added benefit of making your hair look effortlessly cool. It's a great way to do the messy hair trend, and it's a little more fun than the messy bun.
For an ultra-relaxed effect, Spitz your hair with some tousling spray before styling to get that tousled, dishevelled look. Once you've braided your hair and pinned it up with bobby pins, don't be afraid to pull some strands loose to soften the look.
