Hey everyone, I'm Jordan from Braids By Jordan, and I'm back on CGH to show you a fun, mermaid inspired crown braid that would be great for Halloween. If you haven't already comment to Hairstyles, make sure to hit the comment button, and give this post a big thumbs up. So let's get to the hairstyle! Take a section of hair from the front of the head and divide it into three pieces. Then cross the top piece under and to the middle, and then cross the bottom piece under and to the middle.

Take the top piece, add in a small section of new hair, and cross them both under and to the middle. Then cross the bottom piece under and to the middle without adding in any new hair to create a Dutch lace braid. Then continue the Dutch lace braid until you reach the back of the head.
Every so often, go back and pancake the braid by pulling gently on the edges. Once you reach the center of the back of the head, stop adding in new hair, and continue a regular braid all the way down. At the end of the hair, secure the braid with clear, baby elastic.
Then I just put the first braid up to keep it out of the way. And then we're gonna start another Dutch lace braid, except this time it's gonna start where the first one ended and go towards the front of the head. For this style I left my hair with it's natural texture to give it a beachy look.
But this can also be achieved by curling your hair or leaving it in a braid beforehand. Once you reach the front of the head, stop adding in new hair and continue a regular braid all the way down. Go back and pancake the braid so that it's the same size as the first braid.
At the end of the hair, secure the braid with a clear, baby elastic. Take the front braid and lay it across the front of the head so that it meets with the braid on the other side. Then secure the braid with bobby pins.
Then take the back braid, and lay it on top of the other braids to make a crown shape. Secure the braid with bobby pins. Make sure that the elastics are hidden by tucking them underneath and pinning them with bobby pins.
You can finish the style here if you want, but I decided to add some shells to my braid to give it more of a mermaid look. I got the shells from my local craft store and hot glued bobby pins to the back of them so that I could easily add them to the braid. Take the shells and pin them around the braid in a way that you like.
And that's it! I hope you guys enjoyed this fun Halloween hairstyle. And if you did, make sure to give it a thumbs up. If you wanna see my last tutorial, you can click the link here.
