Seeing all the pictures of daring fashionistas at Coachella not only made me want to go to California and listen to the coolest rock, indie, hip-hop and house artists but also it made me crave for boho-chic outfits and hippy chic hair styles like the headband braids.
I love braids and the headband braid is trendy plus keeps hair out of eyes and off your face. So, here are the headband hair braid instructions…Oh !!! Next year I want to be there too along with my favorite bloggers and celebrities…
The headband braids
Definitely one of the trendiest braid hippie chic looks. It doubles as an accessory, too. Everyone from Jennifer Garner to Jada Pinkett Smith and Alexa Chung to Sienna Miller have been seen sporting this look.
What You’ll Need
Start with damp hair and use a wide-tooth comb to detangle the hair.
Use a fine-tooth comb to draw a horizontal line across the crown from the top of one ear to the top of the other wear. From the line, comb the hair forward to the face. Pull the hair in back of the line into a ponytail holder or jaw clip so it stays out of the way.
Choose which way you want the braid to start from. Tilt your head so that the ear you’ve chosen is facing up towards the ceiling. With your ear tilted up, begin making the braided headband using the hair in front of the part. French-braid tightly across the crown and down to the other side, gathering small (1/4 – ½- inch) sections from above the part.
Once you’ve reached the other ear, secure the braid with a ponytail holder. If you like, tuck it behind the ear and pin it in place with a few bobby pins. Remove the ponytail holder or jaw clip used in Step 2 and style as you like.
Because Coachella is as much about style as it is about music!!!
Have a lovely Day!!!
