Step 8: The Back

Once at the back of your hair there should be two large pieces of hair. One on both sides of your head .Take those and slowly wrap them around the back part of the headband.

If your hair tends not to stay curled then apply styling gel to the wrapped part of your hair.

Step 11: Holding It in Place

Take the small clip and clip the back of your hair to hold it in place. You could also use a silk or satin shower cover and put that on as well to hold it in place.

Step 12: Go to Sleep

Get some beauty rest!

Step 13: Unwrapping

Remove the clip we put in the back. If your hair is wet no worries! The wetness of the hair will keep the curls together more! When you wake up slowly unwrap the hair that you set in place the night before. Don't tug on your hair! You could ruin the curls if you tug on them to hard!

Step 14: Hair Spray

Proceed to style as normal but if you use hair spray for this style only use about 2-4 sprays this style holds pretty well on its own.

I did this last night but i had to use a skinnier headband because my hair is so short, my hair turned out pretty but this red mark on my face not so much!

saffront22 (author)2016-11-07

these are EXCELLENT clear and easy steps to follow, you should do more for those simple but usually hard to follow cute hairstyles!!! :) thx a billion im gonna try it out RIGHT NOW!! (gotta wash my hair first though, going in now!! ;D)

sarahfoleyy made it! (author)2015-02-19

if you have really long hair, DO NOT DO THIS! my hair is over two feet long, and I tried this method. When I woke up, my hair was so tangled I had to CUT THE HEADBAND. My hair was so tangled together that I had to cut some of the ends off to get HUGE tangles out! I tried brushing and combing my hair to get the remaining tangles out, but the knots were so large that neither the brush nor comb would go through! I ended up just pulling my hair into a ponytail so that I could shower later that night and use lots of conditioner to get the massive knots out. overall it was a horrible painful experience.

Jeez. Sounds like it. But my hair is long too and I'm physic. I have a feeling it will work for me?????⛈??⭐️???

FanGirl27 (author)FanGirl272016-09-27

I am kidding. I'm not a fortune teller. I just had a vision of me having beautiful curls but my visions don't always come true. Most of the time they turn out to be foolish daydreams lol

The exact same thing happened to me-my hair is down to my waist, and it got all stuck around the headband, and I had to cut the headband and I'm still working on the huge knot in my hair--my mom tried conditioner and coconut oil so far and it won't budge....any tips?

chelsea.nabb (author)sarahfoleyy2015-04-25

That is unfortunate :( I wonder if you would have better luck using a wider headband? That way your wraps would be fewer and not as tight.

JohnaM (author)chelsea.nabb2015-05-03

That was her problem. I do this all the time my hair is much longer than and an my cousins drags the floor (this is her favorite method of curling because it is the easiest). We both use wide soft fabric headbands like the one shown in the pictures. It works very well! I personally like to take sections smaller than one inch or ill do chucky sections just to get a nice curled wave.

I have really really long hair, like down past my posterior. You CAN do this with long hair, you just need to brush your hair out well first, then be careful when you wrap it, not to wrap it through other strands. Thicker strands are better. Also, a bandanna or piece of wide ribbon, or a long piece of elastic, is a must. This way you can untie it in the morning and slip the ribbon out with a gentle tug.
This is the only way I can get my hair to hold a curl, and it does it wonderfully!
It looks like that elastic headband was way too narrow and you wove those strands through each other. Try it again with something wider and take bigger pieces. It's worth it! :)

DeannaB (author)DeannaB2015-03-09

Since I can't edit my post... I remembered a big point for long hair. Twist it first before you wrap it around the headband. It makes it easier to keep together. You have less flyaways to get caught in other wraps that way. Also, run a hand between the band and your hair where you can, just to make sure there aren't any tangled pieces. :)

I can only do this method during the day, at night it keeps falling out. I've used it with a clip but maybe next time I'll try using multiple clips. One thing that's worked well for me at night has been this weird beard twist thing:

I also forgot to add the tighter you pull the hair around the head band the tighter the curls will be
