Headband Braids

Headband braids can be a fast easy way to get your little darlings hair up and out of the way for the day. Don’t forget that you have the option of making those headbands more special when an occasion pops up. Adding accents in the back drastically changes the entire look and feel of a simple braid. Try an accent today on your headband braid. See how is changes the style.

Placing a headband braid

Headband braids are a simple way to keep hair out of your face.

The most familiar strand number is three-strands. There are so many other patterns that can be learned and when applied to the headband form…you suddenly have access to several dozen hairstyles. Notice how different it looks when you do it with more strand numbers.

The braided headband: long lasting and lots of fun!

One of my favorite ways to start a new hairstyle creation is by using cornrows in the front. I like cornrows because they are long lasting, but that is not the only reason. I often use them when there are lots of short hairs in the front (which are hard to braid in). Put a few cornrows in the front and suddenly a single braid in the back is possible. Cornrows in the front whisk up all the flyaways in a hairstyle.  I am still surprised when styles are in the next morning. I can hardly see any difference between before and the day after a night sleep.

Adding cornrows in front of, behind, or surrounding a Headband constructs such beauty as well as functionality. If you want to see a video tutorial on this, click here.

By using your imagination you can add cornrows to your hairstyles. We would love to see them. After taking a photograph of your braid head over to our Facebook group and post your photo for us to see.
