I am loving this braided headband look. It has been popping up everywhere lately! One thing that I love about it is that it is very versatile. It can be formal, casual and Rihanna is sporting it so I guess it's red carpet worthy as well. There is also no one right way to wear this hair style.
One way to wear it is to throw your hair in a ponytail leaving out two pieces of hair on each side of your head. Once your hair is in the ponytail then braid the two pieces of hair and wrap each one around your head.
You can also french braid the head band like these three pictures show. One you can middle part your hair and then braid each side on your head. Then they can meet up and you can put it in a ponytail, braid or a messy bun. The last option is parting your hair on the side and french braiding the side with more hair and comb the other side of hair to meet up with the braid and then put it in a ponytail or messy bun.
