For this look you will need a tail comb, redhead hair ties & redhead bobby pins.
To achieve this popular editorial style we called New York City hairstylist, Kiera Doyle to demonstrate the visible crown braid.
1. Create a diagonal section on the top of the head where the braid will begin.
2. Pick up a small triangle of hair at the base of that section and break it down into three equal sections.
3. Braid 3 strands underneath one another.
4. Next take a small section of hair from the top of the head and marry into the left side of the braid leave the right side (or the part closest to the forehead) as it is and then continue to braid 3 strands underneath another.
Continue this look until you reach your desired stopping point or travel all around the head for a beautiful updo.

Wanting to attain Sophie Turner’s Game of Thrones’ 2016 premiere hair? Technically, she rocked a milk maid braid. But, you can do it in a crown braid version too! The difference is in the technique of the braid.

Following the tutorial above, or watching below, make the milk maid (or crown) braided pigtails. Then, bring the ends to the top of the hair and secure with bobby pins. Spray with hairspray to secure.
Optional: Leave your bangs out prior to starting the braid if you wish!
Rock it like a Redhead!
