Double Braided Headband: How To

 I've been seeing myself wearing braids AND headbands (separately) a lot lately - but in very simple styles. I'm a big failure when it comes to styling my hair so if it's simple and quick, I'm in. Anyway, I've seen lots of pictures with people wearing braided headbands - headbands in the form of braids...of your own hair! - before, but always thought that it required real talent to do - something I would never be able to do in a million years. Yet I found this tutorial and it's actually much simple then you'd expect!

 Here's how to do it:
What you need:

Optional: Hairspray + Tease comb
1. Gather all your hair into a high ponytail - apart from a strand of hair (about 4cm wide, but adjust according to how thick you want your braid to be) just below your ear on BOTH sides
2. Braid one side of your hair normally and bring it over your head, on to the other side and pin it in place
3. Do the same to the other side, placing it next to the other braid
4. Adjust according to how front/back you would like your headband to be
5. Optional: Use hairspray to set it in place
Something different: Now that you've got your headband, you can do what you want with the rest of your hair! Put it in a bun, ponytail, leave it down with curls or have it half-up-half-down


As you can see, I went for the 'half up half down' style and only tied up the top part of my hair (:

I love this style! It's unique yet VERY simple! And you can dress it up with a bun, or down with a ponytail. It's all up to you! I actually accomplished this one night when I got bored revising for Geography and had a mini self dance party when I did! Hehehe C:

This would work best for medium to long hair - well, as long as you have enough to wrap it over the crown of your head!

How celebrities wear it:

This has to be my favourite one because it looks so effortless and classy!
