Well, I thought it looked like a star at least! If you’ve been around BIH long enough, you know one of our favorite styles is one I did last December called the Dressed Up Headband. If you aren’t familiar with it, you’ll need to go take a peek HERE. Because I’m starting mid-hairstyle for this one. It’s nothing earth shattering – just a different way of pulling the hair over the headband. But in the end sort of makes a star across the middle part of the headband.
Working with wet hair is the easiest on this style. Make 5 little ponytails in the front of the hair – secure them with rubberbands. (I start by making 1 in the middle and then 2 on each side) Then put your headband in.
Then with the top middle pony, divide it into 2 sections and pull them far apart making an upside down V.
Sorry – weird angle on this pic. On the pony to the right, divide it into 2. Then pull the left section of that pony towards the left, to join the left section of the middle ponytail.
Then grab a little bit of hair behind the headband to combine with the other 2 sections of hair and secure it with a rubber band.
Move to the pony to the left of the middle pony. Divide it into 2 sections. Take the right section and pull it towards the right, to join it with the right section of the middle ponytail.
Take a bit of hair again from behind the headband and then secure all of them with a rubber band. And there’s your “star.” Yes, I know, it’s missing a bar across the top of the star, but I kinda pretended the line from top of the headband took care of that! 🙂
With the remaining 1/2 of the ponytail that you didn’t join into the star, pull it to join with the last ponytail down by the ear, and secure with more hair from behind the headband. Repeat to the right side as well.
We let her hair air dry, and then we pulled it back into a ponytail, gave it a bit of curl, and tied the ribbon from the headband in a knot around the base of her ponytail.
Then you have one happy girl who’s been wanting to wear this headband forever with her new Christmas dress!
