Watch! The Braided Headband by Ruth Roche


It’s amazing what you can do with a single braid. In the video below, Ruth Roche, Artistic Ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care, shows Courtney Bright from how to create a braided headband. “Most people think braids need to be symmetrical and perfect and that’s just not the case; this version is pulled and flattened so it has more texture and width to resemble a headband,” says Roche.



Get the Look:

  1. Prepare hair with Pureology Strength Cure Cleansing Condition.
  2. Apply Pureology Highlight Stylist Sea-Kissed Texturizer to damp hair and dry with a diffuser.
  3. Take a section about 2 inches from one side of the head and clip hair above and around it away.
  4. Create a three-strand braid by crossing left over center and right over center, down the entire section and secure with an elastic.
  5. Working from top to bottom, pull the edges of the braid away creating a fuller flatter type of braid.
  6. Wrap braid up and over the head at an angle to create a headband and tuck the end underneath the hanging hair on the opposite side and secure at the elastic by crisscrossing two bobby pins in an “X” formation.
  7. Let the long hair hang over the bobby pins and over the base of the braid.
  8. Finish with Pureology Colour Stylist Strengthening Control Hairspray.
