Head Band Curls

This is an easy way to get awesome curls overnight. All you need to do is take a band and tie it round your forehead area firmly. Start with a section of hair from the hair on one side. Wrap it up into the band carefully and bring the section downwards from inside of the band. Now take the next section of hair in the same side and do the same thing. Move towards the backside of your head. Now start with the other side of your face and start wrapping hair sections into the band towards back of your head. Wrap all the hair into it. Take your time and do it gently without messing it up. Don’t forget to use hair mousse to hold the curls for long. Sleep and the next morning gently remove the band and loosen your curls. Your party hair is ready.

Those with short hair can curl hair this way. You just need to make sections of hair and wrap it round onto your head and use 1 or 2 pins to keep it in place. Do this while the hair is slightly damp and leave it for few hours or leave it overnight. Next day you’ll see amazing curls after removing the pins.

  1. It’s true, heat can damage hair; mine is very thin (though through pictures people think it’s thick, but it’s not, unfortunately) and heat is not good to it. So sometimes I use the paper towel method, or even newspaper 🙂 and the braids’ one, too. As my hair is wavy, it gets the shape of the curl very fast!
