Dutch Lace Braided Hairband tutorial

I am not much of a hairdresser, and when it comes to doing my own hair it is quite happy to be straighten and then put up out the way. Being around children, it's just easier that way. 
Though given the opportunity and a willing volunteer, I got the chance to check out what could be achieved with some VO5 products. In my recent shop to superdrug I actually made it past the nail varnishes without buying any newbies and got to see the hair care range, after a quick investment. It was home time to find the style we were going to pull off.

After searching the web, I settled on what I believe would be quite a simple style. My willing victim volunteer happened to be my sister as with the longest hair, it made life a lot easier.

The shampoo I got smelt amazing, it was great to use and left the hair in a great condition. My sisters hair was pre-plaited and was left over night and undone in the morning so that it was pre-curled without using tools. So the heat protection spray has yet to be used. Though will come in helpful with my constant straighten of hair.

To attempt the dutch lace braided hairband I used the rat tailed comb to split the hair in half. Tying up the back to ensure it stayed out the way. Then starting from the left side you plait along only pulling in extra hair from the front.

We braided all the way to the end and used a clip to hide the end behind the ear, and let the rest of her hair down loose to complete the look. Whilst creating the look I used VO5 texturising spray to help lock the style into place. Again the product smelt great compared to sprays I have used in the past and it kept the style in place for several hours.
