Quick & Fabulous Hair Makeover - DIY Hair Wrap
This entry was posted on March 19, 2013.
We love browsing blogs for instant hairstyle ideas and more! It's a great way to come up with a new look if you're in need of a hair makeover or if you're simply on the hunt for a new spring time look that's lovely too. Recently we came across Kelly Hicks Design blog and she offered a great tutorial on how to create a hair wrap. With her long tresses and a fab hair wrap, we can't wait to try this out for ourselves! We recommend you wearing your hair down and curling it with a curling iron to get this look just right. Plus, if you want to add more volume to your existing hair and hair extensions or simply want a pretty accessory that will add personality to your look, read on. The steps are all in Kelly's words, from her blog:
Step 1: Gather materials needed – Floral wire, Fabric, and basic sewing tools.
Step 2: Cut a strip of fabric wide enough to fold in half (can be as thick as you want!) but make sure it’s long enough to go around your head once or twice with some extra on the ends. I liked making mine super long.
Step 3: Fold right sides together and iron flat.
Step 4: Sew together the long way. psst.. you don’t need a sewing machine to do this – it just goes faster that way!
Step 5: Attach a safety pin to one side but only through one side of the fabric. Then feed the pin through the tube to make it right-side out.
Step 6: Take your wire and bend one end into a loop.
Step 7: Feed the wire through the fabric tube.
Step 8: This part is a little tricky because you want the wire loop to stay put at the ends. Hold the wire loop at the end while sewing the fabric shut and make sure you put stiches thru the wire loop too. So now the ends of the wire will stay put. Then just repeat on the other end and you are done!
We love this tutorial because if you're in need of a hairstyle makeover this DIY fabric bendable headband will make your tresses look volumized and out of this world! Is your hair feeling flat? Use the headband to poof it up a bit. ;) Now all that you need is a gorgeous dress, heels, and glitzy jewelry. It's time to go out and show off your new hairdo' and have some fun!
