I think this is one of those hairstyles that has a timeless elegance to it. How to do it? Simply do a Dutch braid around your head until you reach the end of their and create a halo.

7. Foxy Locks’ Big French Side Braid | Easy Braided Hairstyles for Spring
Honestly, I’m not really good at braiding my own hair, but when I do give it a try, I find it easier to do side-swept braids. This big French side braid is easy to do and is great for a romantic night out . I also love how side braids easily compliment different face types too. This braid is similar to any other side-swept french braid except with this one, you’re taking bigger chunks of hair to make the braid appear bigger.

Oh my! When I saw this on YouTube, I just instantly fell in love with it! It’s called the warrior braid, which is just fitting considering how strong and edgy this braided hairstyle is.

Do a double Dutch braid for each starting from the top to the end. However, please leave one small section of hair at the back as you will use this to stitch the two braids together in the end.
