Dutch Braided Headband with a Ribbon

Originally, I featured this hairstyle as #5 in the second ribbon series, “8 (more!) ways to wear a ribbon.” You can see the first part here. I am not sure how or where I got the inspiration to throw a ribbon into this style but it turned out really cute and figured it would be fun to show you how it was done.

The headband braid is a dutch braid and done similar to this hairstyle. The dutch braid is actually a lace braid, which sounds really tricky but simply means only half the braid has hair pulled into it. The ribbon portion is done after the braid is set in place and accomplished by threading it through the braid, alternating between over and under the pulled in portions. This is sounding pretty tricky even as I am typing it so simply click play on the video to see the step by step process of how it’s done. If you try it at home, let me know by tagging me on twitter (@meliss_cook) or on instagram (@melisscook). Thanks for reading!
