Hippy Braided Headband | 70s Hairstyles

June 21, 2010

I am getting more and more hairstyle requests for tween and teen looks that can be done in under five minutes. This style is very simple, and gets tons of compliments. It uses a simple braided headband, which can be placed across the forehead like a leather strap or beaded band that many celebrities are now using. (If your daughter has bangs, you can bring the same braid up over the bangs across the front and back under for another great-looking headband accent.)

To get our texture, I braided the hair the day before. In our case, this is one of many “2nd-Day” hairstyles that you can create from the Double French Braids with Messy Flips. I also have a French Braid tutorial for this same prestyle in my YouTube library above.

Items Needed: Two small bobby pins.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

If you like it, let me know! Happy Hairdoing!

Easy Hairstyles: The Hair Headband

November 03, 2008

Items Needed: Comb, brush, water bottle, one rubber band, 3-4 bobby pins, and hairspray.

Time Required: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

For this quick hairstyle,┬ábegin by parting the hair on either side. Separate off two small sections just behind ears to save for later. Pull the rest of the hair back into a tight ponytail…

Here is another shot of the separated hair…

Take one section of hair and add hairspray or gel. Twist the hair tight. Give to DD to hold…

Now twist the other section. Take both twists and wrap over the top of her head where a headband would lay…

Another shot…

Use bobby pins to secure the end of twists behind ears…

Add a bow or other accents.

Happy Hairdoing!
