The crown braid is one of the most versatile braided hairstyles. It's also a really simple way to pull off a polished updo without opting for the usual topknot or ballerina bun. However, one of the things we struggle with when wearing a braided crown is looking our age. Thankfully, we can look to Ciara as a muse.

The "Dance Like We're Making Love" singer attended the H&M Fall 2016 show during Paris Fashion Week sporting a crown braid. Mizani Global Artistic Director Cesar Ramirez wanted to "play off the fun patterns" in Ciara's intricately patterned dress. "I immediately thought something tribal, twisted, dreaded and maybe frizzy would complete her look," he said.

The thickness of the French braid and fishtail combination made it more grown-up, while the "undone" hair wisps added a youthful touch.
