Loose curls with a headband
Bobby Pin Giveaway!
I had to share this before the weekend simply because I cannot wait to share another hair idea until Monday!
I don’t have a tutorial because I didn’t plan on doing this, but I can explain what happened.
I curled my hair with a curling iron (see video here, also I’m remaking it to include my whole head, btw!) but I did it a little bit looser. For whatever reason, I just wasn’t feeling it. So I grabbed my new headband and put that in.
The key to wearing a headband and not looking like an 8 year old is this:
style your hair as usual, put hair behind your ears, then slip the headband into it’s place. In other words, only use the headband as “decoration” instead of function. Use your ears as a guide and just slide it in right behind your ears. Is that making sense?
Let me show you what I mean:
You can especially see here that the hair in front of the headband isn’t slicked back to my head. It’s soft and natural looking. It also doesn’t give you the headband headache that can occur when headbands are too tight. 🙂
Anyway, I hope this helps with headband wearing!
And have a great weekend!
