I've been wanting to try this whole braid-your-own-hair headband look but I wanted to make the braid look like a real headband. I created this super messy styled bun and decided to do 2 small braids. One of my favorite headbands is one of those double braided leather-ish ones so I figured this would look something like wearing that in my hair. Enjoy!
Tease all of the hair on top of your head.
Push all of your hair back and smooth out the top.
Pull your hair back into a tight and high ponytail and leave out a small amount of hair right in front of the ears (on both sides.)
Loosen the hair at the top of your head with the end of a comb.
Tease all of the hair in your ponytail.
Swirl the hair into and bun and bobby pin into place.
Braid the hair that you left out before and secure with a clear elastic.
Pull one braid across your head and pin into place behind your ear. If there is any hair left hanging, tuck it into your hair that is pulled back. Repeat on other side.
Done! At this point you can pull the braids away from each other like I did or keep them together.
View of my hair from the back. IT'S. BIG.
Up close.. I had this ridiculous piece of hair that kept coming out and I pinned it up but clearly I could've hidden the bobby pin better.
And eeeeeven closer. You could do this same hair style with bigger braids too! Thanks for reading!
P.S. Sometimes I get bored in photoshop and things like this happen.
