Today I'm going to show you my improved crown braid method. I did this for Diantha and this is if you need to make a hair appliance and not necessarily style a full wig (though you could use this in conjunction with a wig if you wanted something you could take apart for easy storage).
So here's the goal. Something too fluffy and large to be an actual braid.
Silky braiding hair ($1.69)
Kinky hair ($1.99)
Knee highs ($3.00 for 3 pair box)
Little braiding rubber bands ($.99)
Hot glue and glue gun.
Now you may be wondering about how I'm going to hide those stubs and why I now have one less ball on this thing. I have really long hair. Enough that a bun of my natural hair is about the size of one of these. So I put my hair in a low bun, then pin in the crown braid with bobby pins (about 10 do the job) and tuck the stubs under the bun, using two pins on each to secure them.
|On the left is the Mark 2 crown braid (no pantyhose), on the right is Mark 3 (with pantyhose). Visually not much of a difference but longevity-wise it makes one. Mark two only last one con, Mark 3 has done three and is still going strong.|
