This week we wanted to put together a quick St. Patrick's Day hairstyle idea, since St. Patrick's is right around the corner. ;) This hairstyle is a spin off of a technique we posted a few years ago, the ribbon flower/clover. We think this ribbon "4 leaf clover" looks cute as an accent to the braided headband on this style.
Of course, this hairstyle can be used for other occasions besides just St. Patrick's Day. The green ribbon can be switched out for any color you want. And, instead of forming a clover or shamrock with the ribbon, you could actually just tie a regular bow instead.
We were trying to keep this hairstyle fairly simple and quick. But if you want to create the headband using a French braiding technique, you can definitely add in hair from the bangs area while you are braiding for a more intricate braid. Also, if the 4 strand braid is too difficult or time consuming for your liking, you can actually make this style using just a regular 3 strand braid (with the ribbon replacing one strand.)
Supplies Needed To Recreate This Hairstyle:
- 2 3ft (approx.) lengths of ribbon
- 1 small hair elastic
- temporary hair tie or clip
- scissors to trim the ribbon
