Woven Braided Headband, Revisited....


I love the simple headband look, but we rarely leave the Princess's hair down because it's almost ALWAYS windy where we live (not to mention lots of jumping on the trampoline and riding bikes.) I don't want the princess to feel like she can't go outside and have fun because she's going to mess up her hair, LOL. And neither one of us enjoy the tangles that come the day after a down do, so we usually just stay away from that. Here's a fun variation to try with some cute pigtails that won't get nasty tangles to comb out, even while playing rough.

Follow our last hairstyle for instructions on weaving the headband. Then make some pigtails with the rest and add the ribbons from the headband on both sides to the piggies instead of tying them underneath.

Twist the ribbon and the pigtail together......Then wrap it into a bun leaving the ends out on top, securing with an elastic.
Cute and windproof. :)

  1. I love the braided headband look, but my daughter has bangs. Would you recommend trying to braid the bangs into the braid or just going behind them?

  2. Meghan, I would say it would probably be easier to go behind the bangs. I have a hard time french braiding shorter hair because I always get little hairs popping out all over the braid. But, if you can get it to work with the bangs, more power to you!

  3. I just found your blog and I love it! As the mother of 2 little girls who are tired of a ponytail, I'll try some of your ideas soon. I was wondering if you could help me find a product that helps with those little frizzy curls around the face. My daughter as kinda curly hair; just enough to make it hard to get the front in.
