1: Two-Strand Braided Headband



Messy hair is well-loved by today’s young women, so jump on board by trying this hairstyle that only requires two strands and some height. Pin in place to keep things secure, but don’t worry too much if something falls out of place. With this hairstyle, a beautiful mess is encouraged.

2: DIY Waterfall Headband


Waterfall braids look so complex, but they’re actually very easy to learn. In fact, this style doesn’t even use a real one – rather, just comb hair back, make a thin braid and then pull pieces from the front through the braid, placing it across the head.

3: French Braided Headband


French braid your hair across the center of the top section and add in some soft curls for a finished look.Combining a headband style with curls can quickly transform this style from something simple into a fancy appearance that’s appropriate for all occasions.

4: Messy Braided Waves


This is the perfect curly hairdo for a boho bride who is getting married outdoors. If you have thick hair, a loose braid can get lost, especially if it is textured. Add a flower or leaves to make it really stand out.

5: Small Cornrow Headband


A headband braid does not always have to be big and bold; sometimes a delicate option is all that you need to take your style up a notch. A thin braid works best for women who have shorter wispy pieces around the hairline or bangs because it holds better without slipping.

6: Two-Tone Braided Updo


If you are a young lady in search of an appropriate style for any formal event, this French braid is a surefire winner for women with long hair. The messy texture and double braid will show off your beautifully blended brown and blonde highlights.

7: Braided Headband with Messy Bun


Instead of a scarf or bedazzled headband, why not try a front braid to accent your casual updo? It works best with a high bun because you can really show off the intricacy of the braid and make it the focal point of the style.

8: Sparkly Accent Headband


When your hair is all one color or pale, a braid headband can get lost in the look especially from far away. Combat this with a thin sparkly headband that will catch the light and draw attention to the detail in the plait.

9: Double Braided Headband


If you don’t know how to do a Dutch or fishtail braid, there is a simple trick to fake the appearance of one. Place two medium sized braids of equal width next to each other to make them look like one large braided band. Blend with loose waves and a heavy side bang.

10: Hippie Braid Headband


Just because you are rocking a braided look does not mean that your headband always has to be blended into your strands. Take a cue from the hippies and pull your braid across your forehead. If you want to be a true “flower child,” add a bright yellow bud.

11: Light and Dark Braided Headband


Playing with color and texture are two surefire ways to make a braided headband pop, and this look does both. The thin braid adds a textural element to highlight the large dark braid. Because the front detail is the focus, make sure to keep the rest of your style soft and uncomplicated.

12: Elegant Ash Blonde Headband


Braided hair does not always have to be the shining star of your style. Sometimes you can use a plait as a subtle boost to your overall look. Because the color is so pale, the braid easily blends in with the texture of the loose curls in the hairdo.

13: Creative Jeweled Headband


If you’re into cos play, where you dress up as a character from your favorite movie, TV show or game, a Dutch braid is the perfect thing to anchor a bedazzled barrette and make it look more like a full headband.This is a great look for fans of World of Warcraft or something similar.

14: Braided Headband for Formal Event


A headband braid will give a dramatic touch to a basic loose low updo. A slight bouffant provides volume throughout the crown and keep the style from going flat, while also balancing out the heaviness at the bottom of the hairstyle.

15: Bold Braided Look


You can still achieve a bold braided look without extremely long hair. The key to make it pop is by incorporating a soft color with balayage highlights. Have some fun by playing around with different braiding patterns. This style combines Dutch and fishtail braids.

16: Classic Braided Updo


This cute look is all about letting your natural beauty shine through. The spiraled bun is glamorous without being gimmicky. It’s clean, classic and chic; perfect for a bride, wedding guest or any formal event that you have on the horizon.

17: Lovely Braided Headband


You can still wear a braid headband with dark hair even if you think the detail won’t pop as much. Just make sure to keep heavy bangs and messiness in the front to a minimum. If your hair isn’t long enough to pull off a full bun, try adding extensions to bulk it up.

18: Casual Braided Headband


Sometimes less is more, especially when you are just trying to let your hair down and have some fun. If you are planning a beach trip or a tropical vacation, this loose style is a good fit because it’s casual but the braid makes it look pulled together.

19: Stacked Headband


The same way that you can stack your layers to create volume in a style, you can also stack braids in a headband look. By intertwining a smaller braid with a larger one, you can not only create visual interest but also build up thickness in your look.

20: Retro Braided Headband


This updo may seem like a blast from the past with the beehive and low bun, but the braided headband makes it modern. It’s an ideal look for a woman who loves vintage fashion and the glamorous side of life.
