Braids are universally known as romantic, feminine hairstyles that are practical, versatile and generally very pretty. The braided headband in particular is great for adding extra detail and texture to a long, loose hairstyle. It's a great way to update milkmaid braids as the braids appear less strict and the majority of your hair can be left loose for a more relaxed look.

What's more, it's a very easy hairstyle to recreate.

You'll need:

Tousle Waves Spray (for added romance)
Blow dryer
Bobby pins
Hair elastics
Bold Control Hairspray

Step one

This hairstyle works especially well with loose waves for a really textured, romantic finish. To achieve this, begin by tousling your hair. To do this, twist medium-sized sections of hair and spray down the lengths with Tousle Waves Spray. Then, pin the twists up in random mini-buns and blow-dry.

Let down your hair and comb through using your fingers.

Step two

Braid a section of hair from just behind your ear and fasten with a hair elastic. Then, do the exact same thing on the other side of your head.

How big the headband ends up being all depends on how much hair you braid, so the bigger the braid, the bigger the headband.

Step three

Take the braids and create a headband by crossing them over on top of your head. Secure with bobby pins and tuck the ends underneath the headband for a smooth finish.

Step four

Mist Bold Control Hairspray over your hair to lock in your style.

Top tip: Leave your bangs loose in front of the braid if you have some or, alternatively, you can pull a few strands loose to frame your face. This will help to soften the look a little.

Happy styling!
