All you need to do is upgrade one of your favorite hairstyles, like the messy bun. We know that this easy updo has become quite the go-to for busy days, but you can make this even more interesting by adding a headband braid. Wondering how to do it? Here’s a simple tutorial on how to create a messy bun with headband braid.
Easy Steps in Making a Messy Bun with Headband Braid
Wash your hair
Before you create a messy bun with headband braid, prep your hair by washing it with shampoo and conditioner that can help boost its volume. We recommend using Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual Shampoo and Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual Conditioner, as these are infused with nourishing and volumizing blends to help make your hair thicker.
Clip your bangs
Take your bangs and clip it to separate it from the rest of your hair.
Take a small section of your hair behind the clipped bangs and divide them into three sections. Then, create a Dutch braid by putting the left section under the middle section, then the right section under the new middle, and so on.
Add more hair as you go along. Once you reach the side of your head, keep braiding without adding more hair until you reach the tips.
Tie the braid
Secure your braid with an elastic.
Tease your hair
#HairHack: Get a small section of your hair at the top of your head and tease it to add more volume to your messy bun with headband braid. Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on this section to give the volume some hold.
Tie your hair
Gather all of your hair and tie it into a ponytail using an elastic.
Make a messy bun
Take a section of hair from the ponytail and loop it around your hair tie. Repeat this step until all sections of hair in your ponytail have been looped.
Twist your bangs
Remove the clip and twist your bangs before pinning them behind your braid. Your messy bun with headband braid is almost done.
