Curl hair with head band
Making headband curls is a simple, no-heat method for creating thick, voluminous curls. To make these curls, wrap somewhat wet hair around an elastic headband that is horizontally positioned on your head. Allow your hair to wrap around the headband for one hour to overnight, then just remove the headband and enjoy your curls! The longer your hair is wrapped around the headband, the tighter and more lasting your curls will be. Making headband curls is an excellent approach to obtain bouncy and voluminous curls without damaging your hair or purchasing pricey appliances.
Part 1: Arranging the Headband
1. Comb your hair. Brush or comb your hair to eliminate knots before beginning to make your headband curls. Brush or comb your hair tips, then lift the brush an inch or two and brush down through your hair. Brush your way up your head, brushing in downward movements, until you reach the top.
- Having knotted hair will make this hairstyle more difficult to achieve and will make your curls less distinct.
- Brush your hair from the bottom up at all times. This will help to keep your hair from breaking.
- If you come across a knot, don’t yank or comb through it. Instead, brush the knot softly in short, light strokes until it is untangled.
2. Wet your hair. Because your hair will dry into the form of the curls, headband curls work best on somewhat wet hair. If your hair is dry, dampen it by running it under the faucet for a few seconds. You may also spritz your hair with a water spray bottle. Wait until your hair is almost dry before attempting this haircut after a shower.
- Don’t saturate your hair; instead, strive for moist rather than wet.
3. Apply hair product to your hair. When you apply curling cream or mousse to your hair, it becomes somewhat drier and more textured. Because of this texture, the curl pattern holds better and lasts longer. You may not need to use product if you already have thick, textured hair. If you have smooth, somewhat slippery hair, using product might help your curls seem better.
- To apply product, take a dime-sized quantity in your hand and rub it through your hair, beginning at the ends and working your way up.
4. Put the headband on. After you’ve wet your hair and applied product, put on the headband and begin forming the curls. Place an elastic hairband “hippy style” over your head, wearing it over your hair like a crown, so that the band runs diagonally across your forehead.
- Make use of a round, comfy headband. It should completely around your head. Use one that is not too tight, since you will be wearing it for at least an hour, if not all night.
- Use an elastic headband that is the width of two fingers.
Part 2: Looping Your Curls into the Headband
1. Make a little loop in your hair and wrap it around the headband. It’s time to start looping your hair once you’ve placed on the headband! Begin by removing a tiny strand of hair from either the left or right side of your face that is framing your face. The thread should be roughly two fingers wide. Lift the strand up and over the headband, then loop it under the headband to produce one full loop.
2. Insert hair into the strand. After you’ve made the first loop over and under the headband, take another little length of hair and loop it exactly next to the one you just made, combining the two strands into one.
3. Create a new loop with the joined strands. After you’ve merged the strands, use the segment of hair to construct a second loop over and under the headband, close to the first.
4. Loop your hair around your head until it reaches the back of your skull. Continue to add and loop to the part of hair you’re using until you reach the back of your head, behind your ear.
5. Repeat the looping method on the opposite side. Rep the looping procedure, this time beginning on the other side and moving back to form loops. When you reach the back of your skull, come to a halt.
- Your hair should now be wrapped around the headband on both sides of your head, with a tiny amount falling down in the back.
6. Wrap the rear half of the headband in a loop. Take the full portion of hair that is falling down at the back of your head and loop it under the headband in the same way that you did the other hair. Because there is no other hair to mix it with, just loop the hair around the headband until you reach the hair tips, then tuck the ends under the headband.
7. Pin your hair to keep it in place. It’s a good idea to bind your hair with pins if you’re going to sleep with your headband curls. Pin the loops to the area of your hair above the crown of loops using bobby pins or hair clips.
- Wrap a scarf over your hair at night to thoroughly cover your curls for added protection.
8. Mist your hair with hairspray. After you’ve applied the clips, spritz your hair with hairspray all over. Using hairspray can assist your hair retain the curl pattern after you have taken it down.
Part 3: Finishing Your Curls
1. Leave your hair in a loop for at least an hour. Once you’ve sprayed your hair with hairspray, you’ve finished the majority of the effort on this hairdo! To pull down your curls, wait anywhere from one hour to overnight. The more you wait, the tighter the curls will be and the longer they will last.
2. Take off the headband. When you’re ready to finish the haircut, carefully remove the pins from your hair, unloop the hair strands from the headband, and pull the headband away. Your hair should be wavy and full!
3. Shake out your curls and style them. When you remove the headband, you may need to do a little extra effort to get your hair precisely where you want it. Shake out your hair, fluff it up with your hands, and let it fall naturally. Rake your fingers through your hair to loosen the curls if you want them to be more relaxed. Keep your hair down, clip a section of it up, or style it as you choose!
- When you’re happy with your hair, spritz it with hairspray again and enjoy your lovely curls!
