Today’s tutorial is a hairstyle I’ve been personally trying to master.
Whenever I did it, the braid would always end up a little bit lopsided somehow. I think I finally figured out a trick to help it lay more smoothly against the head though.
It’s such a great hairstyle when you want to wear your hair down but keep the front pieces from falling in your eyes. It’s especially perfect when you’re growing out bangs. I’ve been tempted to cut a fringe lately so it’s something I randomly think about (:

French Lace Headband Braid Instructions:
- Step 1 / Start by dividing out a section of hair above the right ear and clip the back hair out of the way.
- Step 2 / Pick up a section close to the ear and divide it into three pieces for the braid.
- Step 3 / Begin a french braid crossing the side strands over the middle strand while adding new sections into the braid on both sides.
- Step 4 / After three or four stitches of a french braid, stop adding in sections to the backside of the braid and only bring in hair from the front along the hairline.
- Step 5 / Continue braiding the hair into a lace braid working around the top of the forehead and then back down towards the left ear.
- Step 6 / Once the braid reaches the left ear, braid the section a little further down and then slide a bobby pin over the bottom.
- Step 7 / Let down the back hair and pick up a section at the top of the head and gently back comb this hair. This is an optional step but it does help a little extra volume to the hairstyle.
- Step 8 / Then separate off a section of hair at the top of the head, bring the braid underneath this section and then pin it in place with bobby pins.
- Step 9 / Then let down the hair at the top of head to hide the end of the braid.
- Step 10 / Set the style with a medium-hold hairspray.
