I’m excited about this really simple hair tutorial! The double braided headband is perfect for nearly any length of hair and is a great way to freshen up your hairstyle for spring. If you are traveling for spring break, this would be an easy no-fuss way to style your hair from day to night. I also think it could be a perfect pool-side style for wet hair too so if you try that make sure you tweet a photo to me of it!
I used the ghd Platinum flat iron in this tutorial, along with a few other ghd products, and this flat iron is really top quality. I’ve used ghd for years, their Classic was my flat iron of choice when I did hair, and I was very excited to try the Platinum earlier this year. The Platinum has been proven to reduce breakage by over 50%, which is amazing considering it’s a hot tool! When I spoke with ghd on the phone, they explained the tri-zone technology, which means there are 3 zones in each plate that heat up do you don’t scorch your hair on one specific hot zone that needs to try to spread over the entire plate. Imagine using 1 burner on your stove to boil 3 pots of water…you would have the blast that single burner. In this case, the heat is evenly spread out, so your results are smoother and more consistent.
In this video, I’ll run through curling your hair with a flat iron, adding the double braids into it, and then an alternative way to finish the style if you want to wear your hair up! I also used the ghd air hairdryer, which was a nice size and weight. Sometimes high end dryers can feel super heavy, but this one delivered on speed without the extra weight.
As always, use #smallthingshair when you share any of the hairstyles you learn here on instagram! I love seeing them!
