    I've pulled that look off but when I did it never really went with my outfit...I guess I needed more of a hippie outfit to make it fully work.

    I have so many of those head bands. I'm a 3b and wear my hair like that sometimes, it looks good :) I'm sure you'll be able to pull it off!

    i've done that before (and i've got 3b hair) but you have to put the headband on right after you apply your products. you can't do it on dry hair otherwise the top poofs wayyyyyyyyyyyy too much.

    i agree! im hoping though that once my hair gets longer ill be able to pull it off...i think a headband like that would look awesome on top of a massive bush of 3c/4a curls.....except by then (roughly 2 yrs from now) i doubt it wil still be in style:-?

    try putting the headband loosely around your head, b/c if its tight, ur hair will poof out under it

    Ya i did it last year and it was super cute! I havnt tried it yet this year cuz i cut my hair.

    I think it looks better when the hair is a little more on the curly side with this look. I have 3a hair and bangs and it looks kinda cute but my head band is not real tight.

    I used to do this when my hair was long, it looked realy good with the right outfit. (3c hair). I cant do it anymore with shorter hair because it looks very 80's perm-ish.

    I honestly don't like that hairstyle, I think it would look cute if you put the headband separating your hair from your bans (if you have bangs that is)..

    I've never tried it with a headband because I think it would look super awkward but i do it with my own hair. I twirl two prieces of my hair and wrap it round my head and I get loads of compliments on it. Here's a picture.
