Hairstyle Ideas for Long Hair
Simple Headband Hairstyles
Nina Dobrev looks divine with her long hair pulled back with a simple band. Though this look appears to be effortless, getting this exact look does take a little time.
To achieve this look use a straightening iron throughout the entire hair. Then the real trick is giving a lift at the crown. Simply backcomb (tease) the hair at the crown then smooth over for a little lift behind the band.
