How to do a headband braid 4 ways
Directions
1. Start with clean hair brushed straight and parted in the middle.
2. Make an additional part perpendicular to the center part from the top of the head to the ear.
3. Clip back the hair behind the crown-to-ear part back.
4. Use the front section of hair for the headband and braid in one of the four instructed styles: French, Lace, Dutch, Half-Dutch.
5. Pin the braid when it reaches the ear.
6. Unclip back section of hair and let it cover the bottom of your braided headband.
Pro tip: Melissa suggests that you can always enlarge a braid by pulling on the sides. However, she cautions to only do so from the back of the braid to avoid loosening the style too much.
