Straight Up With a Twist
It’s been a long time since I’ve straightened my hair. My hair naturally has curl/wave, but nothing a great blow dry can’t tame. A great brush paired with a decent dry job and my locks are smooth enough that I don’t feel they warrant my obsessing with a straightener. Plus, lately (and by lately I mean years) I prefer volume and loose waves vs. a stick straight alternative.
Recently a great haircut inspired me to straighten my hair, rekindling memories of styling my friends and my hair before a big night out. I was thrilled with the results, which surprised me, and I can see myself adding it back into my hair routine. To shake it up a bit, I added a slight twist with a braided headband of my own hair. It’s an easy and modern way to add a little something extra to an otherwise simple hairstyle.
For simple steps on how to do a braided headband yourself see the tips below.
- On one side, clip up a section of hair. Isolate a section of hair just behind the ear.
- Loosely braid the isolated section (the more loose the braid the more length you’ll have).
- Free the clipped section of hair and wrap the braid around to the other side. Using bobby pins, secure the braid behind your ear.
- Smooth flyways and you’re good to go!
