Easy Braided Headband Updo for Any Occasion

If you don't have a lot of time to spend on your hair or you just don't think you're skilled enough to do something with it, this hairstyle is perfect for you. With only four steps, this braided headband updo is easy and quick to create. And you don't have to be a hair wizard to do it!


If you have a pretty headband but don't get to wear it as often as you'd like, skip the ordinary headband styles and give this one a try. It's so wearable! A headband updo like this one looks just as good toned down with a T-shirt and jeans as it does when paired up with a pretty dress for a dinner date or a party. Plus, it works on mid- to long-length hair with any kind of texture. Follow the steps below to achieve the look.

Braided Headband: Steps 1-2

1. Put your headband on over your hair. Position it on your forehead so it won't slip off. You can use a subtle one for a low-key look or a statement one for more pizzazz.

2. Make a loose three-strand braid, incorporating all of your hair. Secure it with a clear elastic.

Braided Headband: Steps 3-4

3. Loop your braid around the headband until it is all rolled in place. Depending on the length of your hair, the headband should be enough to hold it in place, but use bobby pins to secure it if necessary.

4. Take the sides, and pin them up with bobby pins, covering the bottom section of the headband.

Voila! You have an elegant headband updo that's perfect for any occasion and it took you less than 5 minutes to accomplish it. For more hair tips and tutorials, visit Ulrika at Yet Another Beauty Site!
