I am not one to throw out scraps, so I've been whipping up some hairbands out of my leftover headband material (aka FOE, aka fold over elastic). In my extensive research* I learned that these hairbands are better for your hair than your basic ponytail holder.
*By "extensive research" I mean I heard it somewhere a couple of times.
My friend Kenya saw one on my wrist recently and she was all "WHERE did you get that? I've been looking everywhere". And I was all "Girl, I MADE this!" Then, like many of the things I make, I insisted it was so easy and you could totally make this! Now, sometimes "easy" in my mind turns out not to be easy in reality, but I stand by my judgement on this. EASY. So easy it doesn't need a tutorial, but I made one anyway. So here ya go!
You will need:
BAM! Done! See, that only took like a minute. Less if you're better at operating a lighter than I am. Plus it only cost pennies to make and they retail for $1-2 each. EACH! Highway robbery, I tell ya!
And if you're anything like me, your hair only sees a styling product once a week. The other 6 days, I can feel a teensy bit more chic with my didn't-take-a-shower-today-because-I-have-a-needy-baby ponytail. Yeah.
