This hairstyle is perfect for your night out! Its volumized look will make everyone turn their heads in awe. In order to complete this look, your hair does need to be a longer length, but don’t fret! If that’s the case, just follow steps 1-7 and put a normal headband in. That way, you’ll get the volumized headband look without the braid.

1 Making a Perfect Headband Braid

Let’s get going.

What You Will Need

Straightener, Hairspray, Hairbrush, Comb, 4 Bobby Pins, 2 Small Hair Ties and 2 Duckbill Clips

Mine’s bit orange, like the tasty fruit, so you can see them better in my hair.

How Long Will This Look Take

It’s not that time consuming! Around 25 minutes (depending on how long it takes to straighten your hair)

Skill Level: Intermediate

Step One

Brush your hair!

Step Two

Divide your hair into layers and straighten each layer.

Step Three

Once your hair is completely straightened, gather the hair above your forehead. Hairspray your roots of that section and then tease the hair sprayed part.

Step Four

Toss the newly teased section aside and then do the same to the hair directly behind the section you just teased.

Step Five

Toss that section aside too and do the same thing to the sides of your hair, the section between your temples and ears.

Step Six

Your hair should look huge, volumized and slightly ridiculous, like the picture below.

Step Seven

With your comb, brush away the fly-aways on the side of your head. Then with your clip (I used an orange bow clip so you can see it), clip that section to the side of your head. Do this on both sides.

Step Eight

Grab a chunk of your hair behind your ear, then braid it, tying it off with a small hair tie. Using your fingers pull on the braided parts to make the braid appear bigger. Do this to both sides of your head as well.

Step Nine

Take the clips out of the side of your hair and brush out the fly-aways at the top of your head. Be careful to not comb out the teasing.

Take your braided strands and bobby pin them to behind the opposite ear that the headband started.
