Braided Hairstyle: Simple and Easy Braided
Alice Band for Your Hair

Single, plaited braids are a great way to add some style to your hair. Even better than that, they are quick and easy to do and look great as a summer style.

Try braiding your hair on the sides to create a very chic, very Bohemian alice band with your own hair!

All you need is
  • soft, clean hair,
  • two clear mini elastic bands and
  • two bobby pins in a color that matches your hair tone

How to do it

  • Start with clean, dry hair.
  • Add some mousse to your hair to give it some texture and a base to work with.
  • Work a small drop of hair silicone into the sides of your hair. This will help to keep the hair together and avoid having pieces of hair flying out the braid.
  • Part your hair down the middle.
  • Begin with one side. In the position where you want the braided alice band to start (just in front of the ear is a good position), grab a section of hair, about one inch thick, from underneath, closest to your hairline.
  • You can clip the rest of the hair away up, so that it doesn't get in the way.
  • Begin to plait your hair outwards, but starting as close to the hairline as possible.
  • Once you have plaited it all the way down, secure it at the end with a clear elastic band the smaller the better.
  • Do exactly the same on the opposite side, so that you have two braids on either side of your head.
  • Release the rest of your hair and using a brush or comb, smooth out the rest of your hair.
  • Take one braid and lift it over your head, clipping it in with a bobby pin. Try to conceal the pin underneath the hair so that it doesn't show.
  • Take the second braid and do the same, in the opposite direction. Tuck the end underneath the first braid and using the second bobby pin, secure it tightly.
  • Spritz with a small amount of hair spray and you're done.
