1. Box Braids Rubber Band Hairstyles
Inject vibrant colors into your hair with rubber bands. For example, add them to box braids to give your style a serious ’90s vibe. Place the elastics at different sections on on your braids. Then, add hair clips in equally bright colors to tie the whole look together. Given that they’re easy to remove, rubber bands can add versatility to your braids for a day.
2. Criss Cross Design
Criss cross is another well-known hairstyle that looks good with elastic band accessories. The pattern creates an impressive look. And it also has a more playful feel than the traditional elastic hairstyles. To get the look, section either the crown, side or front of your hair into diamonds or triangles. Next, secure the hair in each section with an elastic band. After that, start at front, connecting the sectioned hair diagonally in an overlapping criss cross pattern. Finally, secure the hair in a puff, bun or ponytail.
