DIY Headband Braid Tutorial

This Easy DIY Is The Sneakiest Way to Fake a Headband on Short Hair

If you're growing out your fringe or sporting shorter strands, achieving Pinterest-perfect braids can be a struggle, as plaits made from a cropped coif tend to unravel faster. And if you have blunt styles and layers, you know they make intricate fishtail, caged, and waterfall braids even more challenging. But there is good news! Short-haired ladies can achieve a trendy braid, too — just take it sideways across your head (where all the length is!) by creating a faux headband.

This quick tutorial from Cute Girl's Hairstyles demonstrates how to master the perfect waterfall crown braid. It's a lot easier than it looks. Seriously: the only thing you need to know is how to weave a three-strand braid.

By creating loops, performing slight pulls, and using the pancaking technique, the front of your hair will be transformed from your usually styled mane into a braided hair accessory. The best part about the style is that once you master the technique, creating it becomes a breeze. This makes it a perfect way to change up your daily look (and to keep your strands out of your face. Practice in front of a mirror as you watch along!
