Tools and materials:

Tying hair up

1. Tie hair up

Start by tying your hair up, leaving a thick section of hair down at the front on either side of your parting. 

Adding mousse

2. Apply mousse

Now take some hair mousse and apply it to both sections of hair at the top.

Smoothing hair

3. Smooth mousse in

Proceed to smooth the mousse in.

Tying hair

4. Tie hair behind head

Tie the ends of the two sections of hair with an elastic behind your head.

Putting headband on

5. Put headband on

Now, let down your hair and put your headband on.

The mousse adds texture and grip to the hair, this helps the hairband adhere better to the hair, preventing it from slipping or sliding.

The mousse essentially provides a bit of grip and hold, creating a more stable base for the hairband.

Braiding hair

6. Braid hair

This last stage is optional but as a little extra, I decided to take a small section of hair on either side, behind the headband, and braid them.
