Using braids as a makeshift headband is a pretty common idea for a quick-fix for your hair to stay in place. Here’s a video that shows how you can use the rope braid as a headband.


Step 1 – Take an ear-to-ear section and secure the upper side with a clip.

Step 2 – Take a small section of hair from right behind your ear, and make a rope braid. Secure the end of the rope braid with the an elastic band.

Step 3 – Open the upper section which you secured earlier, and comb all your hair  backward.

Step 4 – Place the rope braid horizontally, like a headband, across your hair and secure it on the other side with bobby pins.

Step 5 – Take some hair from the other side, and make another rope braid.

Step 6 – Bring the second rope across, from behind.

Step 7 – Use a little hair, and attach the rope braid with an elastic band.
