32. Fishtail Crown
The fishtail crown can look like the simple crown braid with a different texture because of the different braiding technique. You can also do the braid on the top of your head while leaving some of your hair free, so it’s a crown with some excess at the bottom. Curl your excess hair or leave it straight to change up the look.
33. Crown Into Braid
With a traditional crown braid, your hair is pinned up to keep the crown on the top of your head. Instead, try a crown braid but leave the excess hair down and continue the braid. This creates a crown braid with a side braid that looks beautiful.
34. Headband Braid
Braid your hair into a headband at the front of your head. The rest of your hair remains unbraided and can be left down with beach waves or put up into a tight bun, depending on the look you’re going for!
35. Goddess Braid
Bring out your inner Greek goddess with a goddess style crown braid. This is a crown braid that is layered when you pin the braids up, creating a goddess look. You can leave it as is, or add some olive branches to really complete the Greek look.
Types Of Half Up Braids
Sometimes you don’t want to put your hair all the way up and you don’t want to leave it all the way down, either. Try these half up braided hairstyles when you want to switch things up a bit.
36. Braided Bangs
If you don’t want to put your hair totally up but you want to keep your bangs out of the way, try braiding your bangs and pinning them back behind your ears. It’s a simple half up look that will keep your hair out of your eyes and elevate your look.
37. Braided Pinned Bangs

Leave the rest of your hair down straight or in chic curls for this half up, half down look.
38. Half Up Braid
Traditionally with a French braid, three strand braid, or fishtail braid, you’re using all of your hair in the braid. Instead, only use the top layer of your hair in your favorite style of braid and let it fall over the rest of your hair. It makes for a fun up do that is really easy to finish!
39. Faux Hawk Braid
Start your French braid at the very front center of your head and work your way back, leaving the bottom layer of your hair down. This creates a faux hawk look with the braid, and gives you some room to play around with the rest of your hair.
40. Half Up Side Braid
Only braid one side of your head with a French or fishtail braid. Make the braid as big or as small as you want. You’ll have a cool half up braided hairstyle that is fun on one side and more sophisticated on the other.
