Crown braids are back!

The boho hairstyle trend, which seemingly peaked in 2012, is back for summer - and no wonder! The hairstyle looks intricate while actually being pretty easy to create, plus it keeps your hair out of your face in the summer heat.

Love crown braids? The look is actually pretty simple to recreate: just braid your hair in two pigtails, then pin them to the top of your head with plenty of bobby pins, hiding the ends. Add hairspray to keep the look in place. If you want to avoid flyaways, add a hair serum before braiding or use a smoothing creme while blow-drying.
