A bit similar to the milkmaid braid, which blogger Annie Vazquez beautifully taught us how to do recently, the headband braid (as its name implies) involves utilizing your own hair to create a headband from one side of your head to the other.

In addition to being a fun way to dress up an otherwise standard summer or fall outfit, these braids have actually seen a resurgence on the runways too, as was the case during Fendi’s Fall/Winter 2012 show (modeled above on none other than It-model Cara Delevingne).
