My look for today~ French braided headband

Happy Monday :-)

Today I made a simple French braid headband with a slightly-messy braided bun~ "messy" because I made my bun without looking in a mirror using the only bobby pins and hair clips I had at the time. I was in my office at the time~

And now for more hair pictures :-)

 Thanks for stopping by my hair blog!


  1. Do you use anything other than the visible hair clips Andrea? Thank you so much for posting! My hair is 35 inches and about 5 inches circumference so I don't know if the clips would hold the weight on their own. Melissa

    1. Hi Melissa! Thanks for commenting, and thank you for following my blog! On this hairstyle, I used 3 or 4 bobby pins along with 3 small jaw clips (one is hidden in the middle of my bun). Usually I only use bobby pins or hair pins along with my hairclips, when I make a braided updo or high bun. Most of the time I just use jaw clips like you see in my pictures. I also find that putting my hair in a ponytail before making a bun really helps~ my clips have something to anchor to, and my hair stays up all day. I hope this helps!

  2. Hi Andrea, do you use any pins in these styles? My hair is 35 inches and about 5 inches in circumference so I'm not sure if clips would hold the weight alone. Thank you for posting! Love your blogs Xo
