Braided Twisty Headband

criss cross cornrows This hairstyle has been sitting in our folder for awhile. It's basically the criss cross french braid hairstyle on it's side, in the front (headband style.)

Start by parting two headband sections like this.... Then, part those sections into 3 sections each. 6 total. Starting in the right front section..... French braid up and over to the back middle section. Then, down to the front left section. (I used inside out french braids, dutch braids, or "cornrows." Regular french braids would work as well.)
Next, french braid the remaining sections. Starting with the back right and going to the front middle and ending with the back left.
I ended this by banding together the braids above her ear and adding a cute clippie.

  7. Beautiful! I'll show that to my daughter Melody when I get my wireless issues at home resolved. I'm sure she'll want to try it. (Jessica's more of a ponytail-and-go kind of girl.)

  10. I did a similar hairdo on my little sister recently, except I started one braid on one side of her head, and one braid on the other side. So she ended up with a braid hanging on each side of her face.
    Do you get it? Do you want to try it? <><

  13. I did this style on my dd. I kept the braids seperated and braided to the end. I really liked it and it stayed in well. ( She didn't have school the next day)
