This collection of on-trend braided headbands offer a touch of the disheveled and whimsical for weekend or Holiday ensembles. The style has a fun and youthful vibe for women and girls looking for a different kind of ‘do. Braids are great, they help to keep hair off the face, but forgo the formality of old-fashioned updos. For similar elegance, get tips for creating your own braided headband in the style notes.
Step: Pulse Refinish dry shampoo into dry hair to create volume and gritty, tacky texture which will aid the stability of any entwine.
Step: Tilt your head to one side and brush hair back, away from the ear that is pointing to the ceiling.
Step: Using comb, draw a line from the top of this ear, across and over to the top of the other ear. Comb the hair that is forward of this line into your face. Brush hair behind the line into a ponytail. Secure it with a rubber band
Step: The hair in the front will become the braid. Tilt head sideways as before, and comb the front from one ear to the other, nice and smooth.
Step: Separate the front into 1-to 3-inch wide sections, knowing that the wider your sections the chunkier the headband will be. Keep the braiding loose, not to tight, so you can pull it apart a bit at the end.
Step: Use elastic to tie up the braid. Use pins to make sure the twine stays tucked behind the ear. Undo the ponytail in the back and style as desired –– wavy, straight, pinned or twisted.
Step: Arbitrarily pull out a few hair strands from the top and side of the braid. Make it romantic and whimsical.
