Place it round your neck before you prepare your hair?

I tried that, I end up with funny sticky-uppy bits of hair hmm

I'll practise in front of the mirror later on!

What hairstyle are you trying to get? Are you putting your hair up and then wanting it to keep fringe out of face...?

I want to put it on, and then pull the sweepy bit of my fringe forwards iyswim? But I end up with funny, loopy sticky-uppy bits & bits poking out beside my ears grin Sounds fabulous!

My plan is to curl my hair (if I can manage it!) but leave the fringe straight & use the band to hold the curls off my face.

I'll practise in front of the mirror tomorrow - hopefully I'll have managed to curl my hair & I might work out a way to do it.

put the band around your neck, pull the bits of fringe forward that you're keeping out of the band, tie the fringe in a bobble, style hair, then lift the front of the hairband over your face and put it in the space between fringe (that is in a bobble) and hair. also slightly back comb the hair the is going back and smooth it over as that'll help hold it away from the band and keep the band on display
