17 Ways to Make a Headband With Your Own Hair
There are few things we love more than a simple hair hack — whether it upgrades your everyday ‘do, gets you out the door in five minutes or helps you transition from short to long hair. So how about one more for the list? Today, we’ve got 17 headband alternatives requiring nothing more than your hair and the occasional bobby pin or hair elastic. You read that right: 17 headbands made from your own hair. Let’s begin.
1. The Loose Twist: For a romantic and effortless ‘do, loosely twist your locks from the top of your forehead to the back of your head. Finish off the look by lightly curling the rest of your tresses. (via Hair Romance)
6. Tight Rope: If you’re looking for a sleeker way to keep your locks away from your face, create a tight braid, wrap it around the edge of your hairline and secure to the back of your neck. (via Ducklings in a Row)
10. Half Dutch Braid: Make a bold statement with a chunky braided headband that lines the edge of your forehead. Bonus: This tutorial has three additional braided headband options (think French, Lace and Full Dutch). (via Missy Sue)
16. Waterfall Topknot: Is there a girl in the world who doesn’t love a good topknot? Rather than going for the old standby, up your game by keeping fly-aways out of your face with this little trick. (via Twist Me Pretty)
