It has been too long since I shared a hair tutorial with you and I thank Maria Farrelly for photographing this easy peasy Floral Headband Hair Tutorial for us! Honestly it took me 5/10 minutes and it is something that would look amazing during the festive period! Please give it a go and share your selfies with us. ~ Kate
What You Will Need
- Bobby Pins
- Back combing brush or comb
- A floral headband of your choice. We used one from the Kate Petersen Collection.
I started by curling Charlie’s hair but you can do it from straight if you are in a hurry. The other little tip that I have for you is that I always make sure that my clients hair is clean. This is a very soft and romantic look and feel that clean hair works better. If you find that your hair is a little too slippery then a light mist of hairspray makes the world of difference.
Taking small sections of the hair, backcomb the hair to give it some volume. You can go as big as you like. Amy Winehouse eat your heart out!!
Brush over the backcombing and ensure its smooth. Add a little bit of hairspray to help hold it in place.
Using your bobby pins to secure the hair in place, start folding and tucking the hair over the headband.
Keep going all the way round. keep tucking and pinning the hair until you can’t see any of the elastic band part. Remember that this is a really relaxed look so don’t worry if it is not perfect.
I left a little bit of hair out at the front round Charlie’s face but its up to you how much you want to leave. I know some people who would get so annoyed with anything left out and would insist that it was all back. Mist with some hairspray to keep it in place. With the miserable weather that we have been having you might need a little bit more than you would normally use.
I think you will agree with me that it is very easy. It looks lovely with a beautiful sparkly headband and it works well for the bride and for bridesmaids. send us a photograph once you have tried it. Hope you are all getting into the Christmas spirit! ~ Kate
