In the warmer months, I like to keep my hair back. I find that it really helps to keep me cool. Braids are a fun to experiment with to get new looks. They are also great for “second day” hair!
This easy summertime headband braid is a lot easier than it looks. Check out below for the tutorial.
You will need a brush, curling wand, hair ties and pins for this headband braid. My curling wand is my old faithful, which gets used a lot!
I am using the Goody Clean Radiance Paddle Brush. It has copper bristles which massage the scalp, reduce buildup* and it leaves hair healthy and shiny. YAH! ❤ You should brush with it twice a day for best results and it is not meant to be used with a hair dryer.
For this headband braid I am using the Goody SlideProof Silicone Clear Ponytailers, sold in a pack of 30. I love that they are clear and are great at staying in place. I can run with these in and they don’t come out.
Start by curling your hair as usual with a curling wand. The steps below detail how to create the headband braid:
- Pull out a section of hair from behind the ear.
- Braid section and secure with a hair tie.
- Pull at braid to make it appear thicker (optional).
- Pull braid over the head.
- Secure braid with a pin behind the other ear.
- Take the front section of hair by your face and french braid. Secure end with hair tie.
- Secure braid behind the ear with the other braid.
- Brush hair to one side and secure with pins.
- Pin a small section of hair on other side of head to back to keep out of face.
I found the Goody Clean Radiance Paddle Brush and Goody SlideProof Silicone Clear Ponytailers at Walgreens in the hair aisle. Keep an eye out for the new purple packaging. Walgreens also has a buy one get one free promotion until June 4th so get there soon!
I hope you have a great Tuesday! Thank you for all the blog support and love. 🙂
