The last DIY hair comb was such a hit that I had tons of requests for a step-by-step tutorial. I hope this helps! You wrap your floss between the comb teeth. You start wrapping the way you do each time you switch a color, start in the back and pull through the front. Hold the floss to the back while you do your first pull-through. If you checked out the last hair comb diy (see comb below - upper right & lower left), then you may have noticed that I wrapped differently this time. If you make some, show me some pics!
flax & twine: Day 3: Sparkle Headbands - a diy headband tutorialTheses headbands I want to keep for myself. Really, I can’t decide which I like better the beads or the rhinestones. I know Allie won’t want to take them off. Who doesn’t love the idea of diamonds glittering in your hair? Really you can do this technique with most trimmed beads. I fell in love with the idea of the rhinestones after seeing Green Eyed Monster’s Rhinstone bangles - love these. Material: Plastic headband DMC Pearl Cotton Embroidery Thread Approx. 18″ of beaded trim with attachments in between each stone or bead (rhinestones, crystal beads, etc) Craft glue or hot glue gun Time: 1 hour Attach beginning of floss to inside of headband with craft glue or hot glue gun. Wrap floss around headband beginning at one end. You can wrap a number of times (5-7) quickly and then push strands together snugly, careful not to overlap the strands. When you get to the teeth, decide the maximum number of times you can wrap between each tooth and do that consistently through the toothed portion.

So wear your headband with pride! Love the headband, but don't want to make it yourself?
DIY Chanel Pearl HairpinsThis week’s DIY, requested by a reader, was inspired by the abundant and delightful use of pearls in Chanel‘s Spring 2012 Collection. Though I’m usually not the biggest fan of pearls, I actually fell in love with the way Karl affixed them along the back of necks and pushed oversized ones into loose updos. His modern interpretation of the underwater gem just goes to show that pearls can be worn any day, at any age! With a few easy steps, you’ll be able to whip up a handful of pearl hairpins as fast as you can say “Sally sold seashells by the seashore” 10 times. Backwards. You’ll need:8mm – 12mm half drilled crystal ‘faux’ pearls20 – 22 gauge wirebobby pinswire cutterflat nose plierssuper glue Start by cutting off a 5 inch piece of wire. Put a few drops of super glue onto the tip of the folded part and insert it into the pearl. Allow it to dry completely. Continue to wrap tightly 5-6 times. Now, secure the pearl by wrapping the other side around the bottom half of the pin.
Elastic Hair TiesHey guys, it’s another hair DIY! I received an Alex & Isabelle hair tie in a Birchbox a few months back, and I loved it so much that I bought a few more in different colors. They are less damaging to the hair, not to mention cuter on the wrist. 1. 2. 3. style="display:inline-block;width:728px;height:90px" data-ad-client="ca-pub-4046070994200473" data-ad-slot="3945793669">
