[Hairstyle] Headband Braid | The #WashDayExperience


I didn't think that I would have this much fun playing around and styling my Kurly Klips! But today I'm back to share another, kinda sorta #washdayexperience with you guys starring this uber cute  Headband Braid.

I started by following my usual boring regimen. (You can find it here.) I've noticed that my hair has been crazy moisturized lately. Note to self to work in a legit protein strengthening treatment soon. After I deep conditioned my hair and applied my leave ins, I put my hair in about 20 twists then pulled then all back into a low pony tail to dry. In the morning, I arranged my Kurly Klip wefts into this crazy easy style.



Here's how I did it:
  1. Separate your hair into two parts leaving about 2 inches of your hair out in the front.
  2. Install your clips as usual in the back half of your hair using the "Reverse Clip" Technique shown here to maximize volume.
  3. Start your dutch braid at your ear. Continue braiding incorporating only hair on the right side until you get to your other ear. Finish the braid and secure with a small hair pin.
  4. Pin your hair back for a mini pompadour then fluff the back half of your hair.


This style keeps my hair out of my face while still allowing me to rock BIG BIG HAIR! As you can see, I left a very small bit of my hair out so that I could blend it back. It's crazy windy today here at the beach and I just couldn't get the clips in the front to act right. Ha-ha!

What do you think? Would you test drive this style?

    1. Thanks hun!

      Sad but true---I'm still mad about my cookie. LOL. But I'm grateful that I never keep anything valuable in there. It would have been worst to loose something that was irreplaceable.

  7. Your clips are working really well for you. Love how you're wearing them in so many styles. I wish I would have gotten the more kinky textured ones since I'm on a relaxer hiatus. The ones I have are more like a relaxed hair texture.

    1. I wonder if you can make the clips that you have a little more textured? I noticed that when I brush out my clips while they are dry, then rinse them it gives them more volume.
