I feel like our weeks have just been flying by. Last week I went to Blog Elevated, Addie was dedicated at church, she had her surgery and ABR test, and she had a doctor’s appointment. Not only that, but our A/C decided to go out on me on Saturday whenever Mathew was out at the deer lease to prepare for deer hunting season. We’ve been quite busy and I feel as though I’m running myself ragged at times. I definitely need a date night with Mathew or a night out crafting with a friend, because it can be pretty exhausting taking care of Addie at times! Still, I made sure to give you guys another fun hairstyle this week, the braided headband! I really love the braided headband because it’s cute, functional so my hair isn’t in my face, and looks more fun than a typical half up, half down hairstyle. Plus, it’s really easy, and you can’t beat that. I only have a few minutes each morning to get ready because I love to sleep in as long as possible until it’s time to relieve Addie’s nurse for the day, so this braided headband is one I can whip up in 5 minutes, tops! The braided headband can be done on medium to long hair.

Remember: The goal of Mom Hair Monday? To give you a cute, functional hairstyle that will take you from drab to fab in 5 minutes. 5 minutes is all we have, right moms? I’ll be showing you my tried and true hairstyles that are no fuss but look like you put in a ton of effort.

What will you need for the Braided Headband?

2 clear elasticsbobby pins, and a brush (I love the Wet Brush.)

Here’s how to do it:

1. Part your hair to a side part. You can keep your hair straight like I did, or if you have a couple extra minutes, quickly curl the bottom half of your hair.

2 & 3. Separate your hair on both sides of your head. You’ll want to section off your hair into the pieces in front of your ears as shown in the pictures below, and then take a 2-3 inch section of hair from behind your ears for your braids.

4. Following the fishtail braid tutorial from our previous Mom Hair Monday, you’ll fishtail braid both 2 inch sections of your hair that you took from behind your ears. Secure each braid with a clear elastic. This braided headband tutorial by The Vintage Modern Wife is SO easy and I'm able to do it in 5 minutes!

5. Use your hands to pull apart your braids to widen them and messy them up a little. This is a key part into making them look perfect for your braided headband!

6. Take the left braid and place it above your head, ending at the right ear. Pin the braid down by placing 2 bobby pins in an X shape to secure it to your head. Repeat by taking the right braid and placing it above your head, ending at the left ear and securing.

8. You are done! If you have extra time, you can curl your hair like I said earlier or even tease the crown of your head. If you don’t have an extra minute or two, no worries, you still look fab!

This week thankfully is not as busy of a week for our household, and I’m thankful because Addie and I need to just relax for once! She has an appointment today, but other than that we are pretty much free for the week. I’m so happy!

So there you have it- the Braided Headband. Fun, functional, and sexy! Let me know if you try it, and make sure to come back next Monday for another Mom Hair Monday hairstyle!

  1. This is so cute! I’m not sure what’s wrong with me, but I am entirely incapable of braiding my own hair. Like, it’s a disaster every single time! Have any tips on that? Look in a mirror or no? I feel like this is a tutorial I could actually do if I could just manage that one simple step!

  2. LOVE! I have tried this, but it didn’t turn out as well. I think I need to pull the braid apart like you did.
