Hi everyone! If you've been reading for a while, you may know that I'm not exactly the best when it comes to doing my own hair, but I'm trying to branch out, so when France Luxe sent over this gorgeous Borgia headband for me to style three different ways, I was super excited, but slightly nervous, too!
With that out of the way, these are three ways to wear a headband that are foolproof, because trust me, if I can make it work, so can you!
For the first look, I decided to go with something that would be ideal for days when you need your hair to look nice, say for a cocktail party or dinner date, but don't want to bother washing or heat styling it! Starting with dirty hair (use volumizing products on it the day before, if possible), pull the headband to about an inch back from your hairline. Using hairspray and a comb, backcomb your hair at the crown to give height, secure with a ponytail holder at the nape of the neck, and form a bun! It took less than five minutes, but looks great!
When I pulled the head wrap out of the package, my first thought was that it was basically jewelry for your hair, so I decided to go with that idea, and wear the head wrap as a necklace! I think it's equally gorgeous in hair as it is around the neck, and no one will be the wise that your necklace is a headband pulling double-duty!
For the final look, I kept things super simple. I used a curling iron to add a bit of wave to my hair, pulled the band on, and pulled the front pieces of my hair through to soften things up a bit.
So, are you a headband wearer? I think I'm officially converted now!
