Seventies headband on short hair

This style is ideal for thin hair as the backcombing adds serious va-va-voom. We love this retro look with a nod to Jackie K, and it works really well with bright headbands. 

What you need

Step by step
Dry your hair completely and apply hairspray all over to give hair more grip, then brush it through to ensure even coverage. Backcomb the whole of the back area of your hair by pushing your hair down with the comb. Next, brush the hair through, then place the headband just in front of the backcombed hair.

Backcomb your hair to the max to get the full effect. If you're worried about the health of your hair, use a hydrating mask on it the week after you try this 'do.
