Rubber Band Hairstyles

Rubber band hairstyles are the perfect choice when you're looking for a playful and pretty summer hairstyle that's full of fun. The 'rubber band' really refers to small, thin, strong-hold hair elastics – usually colorful – that you can use to create amazing patterns and sections in your hair. They can also be used to elevate and accessorize simple hairstyles like puffs or ponytails.

Rubber Band Hairstyle for Short Natural Hair

If you have just had the big chop and are wondering how to style your short natural hair, rubber bands are a great option. They make a statement and add a fun, eye-catching quality to your hair. One standout style is creating a box pattern 'hairband' effect. Section the front of your hair as you would when putting in box braids, but leave the rest of your hair loose. The result is cute, pretty, and feminine.

Rubber Band Hairstyle for Long Natural Hair

Rubber bands are a great way to inject vibrant color into your hairstyle. If you have long natural hair that's been braided – or you've had long braids put in – try adding rubber bands to give your style serious ‘90s vibes. Place the elastics at different intervals on your braids, not just at the ends. Finally, add hair clips in equally bright colors to tie the whole look together.

Rubber Band Hairstyle for Medium Natural Hair

Ideal for medium natural hair, try a sleek rubber band hairstyle. The key is to show off your hair’s natural curl with a high-shine finish, while also creating a polished and defined pattern with rubber bands in the front. Section your hair into boxes – or even triangles – then braid or twist the pieces of hair together with the elastics. Add beads or rings for an extra glamorous touch, then spritz through an oil mist on the rest of your hair to create shiny, bouncy curls.

Criss Cross Rubber Band Hairstyle
