Get some elastic fantastic
The key to this great look is to getting amazing hair bands is to get some good quality and funky elastic some just coloured, some with glitter. This is so easy to get on the internet but make sure it is at least a couple of inches wide to help with your decorations. Speaking of decorations grab yourself grab yourself some ribbon sliders in heart or star shapes. These things are what make this look totally unique and 100% your own.
Measuring up your kit
We need to make the basic design for our hair tie. It is simple but essential so measure 8 or 9 inches of elastic (depending on how thick your hair is). If you are more into pigtails or just want to add something to the end of your braids then 4 inch pieces are more than enough.
Add a little glitz and glitter
If you want to make it more glamorous add some glitter, if you don’t have glittery elastics, at this stage with some glue. Wait for it to dry. If you want to make it totally yours and unique add your cute star or heart shaped slider. If you don’t fancy wearing it as a hair tie they also look incredible as colourful bracelets, thy look great if you wear more than one at a time.
Creating your loop
Fold it in half and tie the ends together in a knot. Once you have the right size trim the end on a diagonal angle for a finished look.
That’s all there is to it! It is so simple and easy, why not do more than one at a time? If you have a good quality glue it shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes to dry and get these babies made. They are brilliant to doll up a simple yoga top knot or are perfect to compliment your hair extension for great night out. If you are looking for a cheap, thoughtful gift.
