Woven Ribbon Headband

Anyone remember this fake french braid made with ribbon? Click on that link for instructions. It's the same concept, just made over the top of her head (headband style) instead of down the middle.

PS-I've found that thicker ribbon (like 1/2 inch-1 inch wide) works better than thin ribbon with this hairstyle.

Yes, her hair is still wet. :) No time for drying or curling today.

Oh, and in case you're wondering how to end the ribbon..... I just took both pieces, wrapped them underneath the ponytail and tied them off with a clear elastic. Nothing fancy, and it held just fine. If you wanted to, you could tie it into a bow for a cute finish.

  1. I'm new to your blog- I found you as I was searching for ideas for my daughter's hair. We're going to Disney World next month and we're having dinner with Cinderella. I don't want to spend $50 to have my daughter's hair done like a princess- so I'm going to try to do it myself. Do you have any posts or ideas that might work? You can email me at ourhappyhappenings@gmail.com
    Thanks!!

  6. Wow, I've just discovered your blog and I'm amazed by all the ideas that I'm finding there. Too bad I can't do that on the weekdays but it's fun to take some time and do something different on the weekends.

    I have a question for you though, how do you take all those small plastic elastics out of your dd's hair? I usually end up cutting the ones I use once in a while in my dauthers' hair because it always gets all tangled up... Am I a spaz or is it the way you do it too? LOL

  8. famille-

    I don't usually cut the elastics out unless there are a ton and my daughter is feeling fed up, LOL. When I put them in, I make sure to not get them super tight. This seems to help. Also, when you're taking them out, try to unwrap them without pulling other hair into the elastic as you go. I think it just takes some practice to figure it out. I've pretty much got it down to a science and they come out pretty easily most of the time.

    Good luck!
