Another month, another hairstyle! It’s Emily again from It Girl Rag Doll, and this month I have a super easy yet really cute braided headband for you! All you need is a few bobby pins; four should do the trick.
1. Separate your hair into two sections, front and back, right around where your ear is.
2. From the back section, grab a smaller amount of hair from it, sort of underneath and behind your ear. This can be as much hair as you want, it’s just a matter of how thick your hair is, and how thick you want the braids to be.
3. Braid that small section from behind your ear. Pull it out and towards the front of your head, almost upwards a little bit. This is so when you take that braid and bring it up and over your head there wont be a bump at the base from braiding it downwards. (This is not crucial to the process, just helps to make it look a little more smooth over all).
4. Tie it off at the end just for now, and then do the same thing on the other side, separate the hair, grab that chunk from behind your ear and braid in the same fashion. Now you have two braids
5 & 6. Take one of the braids and bring it up and over your head and end where the other braid is, behind your ear. Place a bobby pin at the end of it, you should really only need one of two to secure it in place, but use as many as feels right. If you have thicker hair you may need more; mine is fairly fine so it doesn’t take much.
7 & 8. Take your other loose braid and do the same exact thing, pinning it behind your ear at the base of the other braid. The ends of the braid shouldn’t have to be tied off with a hair tie. Depending on how long your hair is, the ends of the braid should just sort of hang and blend with the rest of your hair.
And that’s it! Now you have a beautiful braided headband. Simple right? Be sure to check back next month for the next edition of DIY hair. And if there are any styles you might like to see in the future, let me know in the comments below!
