Headband-Tuck Tutorial

If you ladies are anything like the two of us, sometimes you get a little lazy with your tresses, so we’re all about finding some quick and simple ways to throw it all up and get out the door faster. All you’ll need for this is a headband and a few bobby pins. This trick works really well for unwashed hair, so don’t be shy with the dry shampoo. Reg is a big fan of Dove, while Christa opts for Baptist for her dark hair, both should be available at the drugstore or Ulta.

Check out below for a step-by-step:

// 01. If your hair is a little dirty, spray some dry shampoo and give it a good shake/rub down. Then position your hair in front of your shoulders.

// 02. Place your headband on top of the hair, so the base of the band is along the nape of your neck, with the hair underneath it (sort of like a crown).

// 03. Pull your hair to one side, gently creating one large twist over your shoulder.

// 04. Wrap your twisted hair around the base of the headband, as many times as it takes for the hair to be completely wrapped (mine took about three times). It’s okay if this looks a little messy, embrace it!

// 05. Taking your bobbies, tuck the crazies into your bun to hide the headband. Don’t worry about it being perfect and feel free to let some loose pieces hang.

// 06. All done! Just position your front pieces as you like. If you have a little time and want to take the look up a knotch, heat up a curling iron to give your whispies a quick wrap about the barrel.

Now that we’re all (hopefully) getting a little summer color/glow on our faces, we usually feel the need to wear a little less make up – and doesn’t it feel good! But there are still days we want to add a little flair without going overboard, and the perfect way to do that is to get your hair out of your face & sass up those lips. Go easy on the eye make up and accessories, and you’ll feel fresh and ready to go. We’re loving these bright lip colors paired with headbands — go casual, hip, or glam.
