Today we are recreating a fun hairstyle from our website which we initially posted way back in 2010. You can click over to see our original "pictorial" and check out "the princess's" short hair if you are curious!
She has worn this woven headband many times over the years and especially loves it for sports. This hairstyle is great for soccer / football, gymnastics, dance, figure skating, ballet, tumbling, swimming, running, basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, etc. Elastic styles (such as this) really help to keep your hair out of your face while exercising and hold up well, even with a lot of activity. We love the unique woven accents in this headband, which make this hairstyle pretty and interesting to look at, as well as functional.

There are several different options for finishing this style. You could create the woven headband and leave the rest of her hair down (curled or straight.) Or you could add a ponytail, bun, braid, pigtails, etc. with the remaining hair. (We have included a few example pictures below.) Also, if you would rather braid the individual strands in the headband before you weave them, you can do that instead of simply twisting the hair like we did.

Again, styled with a ponytail. This is her favorite way to wear this hairstyle for soccer.
And, with a messy bun....
This headband could also be worn as a cute transitioning hairstyle for those of you who are in the process of growing out your bangs. We know what a painful process that can be. ;) And although "the princess" has long hair at the moment, this will work with fairly short hair as well. When we first created this style, her hair was just above shoulder length and it worked just great!
