Both are reigning champs on Pinterest, and in a strange (but awesome) turn of events, the two have come together to form what just might be the coolest hair trend of the summer.

I think they look great on everyone. Absolutely everyone. Not to mention they are incredibly versatile. Whether you call them hair scarves, head wraps or turbans, they are the perfect accessory for the beach, a summer outdoor event and depending on the fabric and style-can work for day or night. Thin, knotted, tied up or tied down, this is a new summer staple. I love this bright pink head scarf from ThreeBirdNest tied like a bandana.

Hair Tapestry- Is This A Hot New Hairstyle Trend?

Hair tapestries, which feature colourful threads woven around the tresses as needlepoint art, are quickly making a splash on social media. However, the infamous 1990s trend has thankfully been updated, with intricate patterned designs, bold sections and funky colour-blocking marking the revamped hair tapestry for Summer 2015. The boho chic hairdo involves coloured thread, a needle and a tapestry loom in order to craft the look. While a hair tapestry may not be perfect style for everyone, British hairstylist Alex Brownsell has been creating the hair art for clients at the London-based Bleach salon. In fact, 20-year-old British model Immy Waterhouse (who is the younger sister of Suki Waterhouse) even sports the eye-catching, elaborate hair look in an editorial spread for Miss Vogue UK.

This brand is to empower women from all walks of life to be bold, beautiful, and powerful.” For now the site only offers headwraps, but Paola wants to add more to her line eventually: “I started with the headwraps because they’re my wardrobe staple, and I always get questions about them.” I love the aesthetic of the images and of course also the headwraps.

Weaving Class: Creating Shapes and Getting Fancy. I'm back with the second of three installments of Weaving Class to teach you how to make simple shapes and customize your wall hanging with a little paint and fun tassels.

Weaving Class: Creating Shapes and Getting Fancy

In the first class we covered the general tools you need to get started and set the foundation with a few basic things you need to know to create your first wall hanging. If you find yourself getting stuck on something, head back to the first tutorial for a quick review. My first wall hanging was pretty simple in theory. There were rows of straight lines in different thicknesses with a little rya knot row, a basketweave, and even a shape made out of a negative space. I liked it, but it was early days and didn't really feel like my style yet.

One day I looked down at the kilim rug under my dining table and realized it was dotted with similar shapes and realized the hot pink that played a minor role in the design was showing up over and over again in most of my weavings. Supplies: -Loom. -Cotton yarn for the warp.
