Wait & Braid | French Braid Headband

We're back again with another Wait and Braid post! This one is a French braid in the style of a headband! I absolutely love this style and it really pulls the hair back off the face. It's perfect for those days when you really can't be bothered with your hair but you still want it to look good! I done a french braid and just pinned it underneath my hair to create the headband effect!  So it's really easy but beautiful too. There are so many variations of this hair style. If you prefer Dutch to French braids you could easily do that instead. I like to leave a little bit of my fringe on my face for a messier style.

Do you like this style?

    1. I actually think braids work in any hair and I think a braid would look gorgeous in thicker hair! I always use little elastic bobbles. x

  4. This hair style looks great on you! Unfortunately my hair has too many different layers to achieve a good braid!
