How To: Keep A Headband In Place

With Summer and festival season around the corner, we’re adding more hair accessories to our looks with the headband being one of our favourites. The only problem is that it struggles to stay on! So here’s a little step by step of how to keep that headband or scarf on all day. You will need hairspray, bobby pins and of course what ever pretty headband you’ve come across.

1. Spray the top of your head and the back of your neck where the headband will sit on your head with hairspray. Your hair should already be styled except for the addition of the headband at this point. Only spray the area very lightly.

2. Place the stretch headband on your head, carefully avoiding pulling hairs out of place. Pull the stretch headband about a half inch to an inch behind your hairline and above your forehead, where the layer of hair spray was applied in Step 1. Spray the area around the headband once more, applying the hairspray sparingly, focusing on the sides and the top of the head. Hairspray creates a sticky texture to the hair, which will keep the headband anchored in place for the whole day.

3. Use bobby pins to create texture on thin or sleek hair. Start just above the ear on one side of the head and push one small bobby pin up and back into the hair to create one arm of an “X” shape. Push a second bobby pin into the hair, going across the first bobby pin to complete the “X” shape. Make another “X” shape just above the other ear. Add two more X’s about two inches above each of the first X’s you created. Slide the stretch headband over your head so that it sits directly over the bobby pins. The texture and shape of the bobby pins will keep the stretch headband in place.
