Ancient Greece has inspired fashion looks ranging from column dresses to the one shoulder look...it has also inspired some gorgeous beauty and hair looks, including the one worn by Sanaa Lathan and Jennifer Lopez below. This stunning updo with a braided headband is perfect for those last holiday soirees! Best of all, it need not be perfect.
1. Brush your hair back and up into a high ponytail at the crown. Secure with a ponytail holder.
2. Take one to two inch pieces from the ponytail and pin the middle of the pieces to the crown, leaving the ends free. Continue until all parts of the ponytail are pinned up. If the ends of the hair that are pinned up look straggly, curl loosely with a curling iron.
3. Slide a metallic braided headband on. Go for colors that will complement everything in your wardrobe like, gold or silver. Try this cute gold headband on Ebay. Go for one or two or three headbands to achieve Sanaa's look and hold in place with pins. For Lopez's look, use a braided headband made from synthetic hair like this headband made by Braidies. Then, slide a simple headband in any color next to the synthetic braided headband.
