Introduction: Tulle Headband Updo

I'm really into updos, and they can actually be pretty easy if you know what you're doing. I added this headband to complete the look.

Step 1: Creating the Bun

Start by curling your hair. Wrap your hair around the barrel to give your hair a more natural and voluminous look. When I'm in a hurry in the morning, I just curl the front and top of my hair. Leave the curled hair in front and braid the back before pinning it into a bun. Then, pin small sections of hair to the back. I've done this hairtsyle in 5 minutes, which is great for busy mornings. In this tutorial, I curled my entire head of hair before putting it into an unbraided bun, but it basically has the same effect. I just pin everything randomly and somehow it works. Make sure most of the bobby pins are concealed, and the hair isn't too tight against your head.

Step 2: Adding the Headband

I made this headband out of a spare piece of tulle. I sewed a few gold beads onto the top.

How do we make that headband? It's adorable!

That was a very simple accessory to create! I took a strip of spare tulle, and tied a loose knot off to one side. Then I sewed some spare beads and trinkets onto it (I felt that the knot was a good foundation). I found everything in some of my craft bins and junk drawers. One of the attachments is actually a part of another headband that I have that broke off. I figured I might as well make myself a new headband if the other one was broken. :)
