So today I thought I would share with you my newest obsession. The "silky hair tie". I have no idea what to call it, so I made it up. :)
Now, I am going to attempt a tutorial here. I'm not saying it's going to be great, but these things are so easy, my dog could teach you. If she had thumbs. It does require those, but just barely.
First, cut your FOE (fold over elastic) into the length you need. I chose 10 in. because I have much hair.
Tie ends together in a knot and cut ends at an angle. Also, I applied fray check to help with, well, fraying.
And that's it. All these took me five minutes, if that.
I love that I can keep one on my wrist all day without it bothering me and put it on whenever I need to. Also, I'm not stuck in a ponytail all day becasue there is no crease when I take it out.
I'm sure there are tutorials out there that are much better than this one, but frankly, I didn't look. I just wanted to figure it out and I had no idea what to call them to search for one. LOL
Are these the scrunchies of 2012? Who cares? For now, I am in love. Plus they cost approximately 5 cents a piece to make.
Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!
Linking up with these great parties.
