I hope everyone had a great Valentines Day … and for some a wonderful 3 day weekend. I did. Want to know the best part? I had no kids yesterday! My folks took them & my honey was home … he did a bunch of stuff on his “honey-do” list & I got quite a bit accomplished around the house. It’s amazing how much more you can get done when kids aren’t around! But I know … that’s know what you came here to find out … so I’ll get on with it!
I hope you’re not sick of headband stuff yet. I know lots of the other blogger’s have done “hair headbands” and I thought I was done with ideas on how to keep a “real” headband in place – that was until I got a FAB-tabulous little headband from this amaaaaazingly talented friend of mine. Because she wants to stay anonymous we’ll call her “Jen.”
Anyway – this one works nice for thinner headbands but will work with thick or thin I’m sure.
I didn’t take step by step pix on this either because the camera wasn’t anywhere near when I did her hair! So assuming you all know how to do a “pull through” it’s very simple & quick & easy.
Part the hair on the side (or wherever you want depending on if your headband has a design, bow, etc.) Then part it from your side part down to the top of the ear. Make a ponytail & then tuck it under & pull it through the hole. Make another part that is slightly behind the ear and repeat, making another pull through. Repeat on the other side of her head. I then flipped her hair up on the ends with our flat iron.
Just position it between the 2 pull through’s and it covers up that part that runs from ear to ear quite nicely. The pull through’s act as a “bumper” of sorts to keep the headband in place. You also could make the 1st set of pull through’s and then put on the headband and then do the 2nd set – so the hair crosses over the headband. I opted not to do that on this one because of the darling bow on top.
And if you’re fairly new to my blog or want other fun ideas of how to keep a headband in place – check out these other posts I’ve done … go here, here, or here. You’ll never have to complain about a headband not staying in place again!
