How To: Do a headband braid

Do a headband braid

Create a cute headband out of your own hair with this braiding trick.

You Will Need:

* Long hair
* Elastic bands
* Bobby pins

Step 1: Comb your hair
Comb through your hair to remove tangles.
*Tip: You'll have an easier time working with hair if it hasn't been washed for a day or two.

Step 2: Part it
Make a deep side part.

Step 3: Grab two inches of hair
Take a strand of hair about two inches thick from the front of your head, on the side of the part with more hair. Pull it taut, and divide it into three even sections.

Step 4: Begin braiding
Begin braiding: Pull one of the outside sections over the middle section of hair, and then pull the opposite outside section over the middle section of hair. Continue alternating outside sections over the middle section.

Step 5: Grab as you go
As you braid your hair, keep incorporating hair from underneath the braid. Continue braiding until you reach the back of your head. Temporarily secure the braid with a bobby pin.

Step 6: Braid the other side
In the same way, braid a strand on the other side of the part until it meets the first braid in the back.

Step 7: Connect the two braids
Connect the two braids into a ponytail, braid them with any remaining pieces of hair, tuck them under, and secure with bobby pins.

Fact: Thirty-eight percent of women say they'd rather be late for an important meeting than show up with bad hair.
