I first saw this hair style on Grosgrain for a segment called “Dirty Hair Month.” (PS, I love this blog). I’ve also seen tutorials of this style on YouTube, and I’m sure there are plenty of versions on Pinterest. I thought the look was cute, but is it really as easy as everyone is making it out to be?
The Question: Is this actually possible, let alone easy?
The Test: My hair is three days old in these pictures, so I first used a dry shampoo spray. (Obviously, skip this step if it doesn’t apply to you.) I took a patterned headband and folded it in half because it was too wide. I put it over my head (a la bohemian headband), and began looping hair up and over the headband. Once I got to the back, I just kept looping the hair over and over until it was properly tucked. I used a few hair pins to secure loose ends.
Conclusions: Wow, it really is super easy. It took me more than the 5 minutes it takes Grosgrain, but not much – maybe 10 minutes? My hair is kind of ridiculously long right now (I can’t find a salon I like ), so it was a little bit of a logistical issue at the back with so much hair. But if you just keep looping, you’ll eventually get all the hair up. The hair style feels pretty loose, and I normally prefer more secure-feeling do’s, but we’re nearing the end of the day and everything is still in place.
