I got a twistband in my Birchbox last month. I loved it. Since I almost have waste long blonde hair, I am constantly searching for ways to keep my hair out of my face without destroying it. Twistband is my answer. Of course, I’m not the only one who has realized how awesome these hair-ties are. I see girls wearing them everywhere!
Like all things I love, twistbands are kinda expensive. I bought 5 for $10 at my local clothing store and have seen them for much more. All twistbands are is elastic ribbon tied in a knot. I figured, I could make those!
A simple trip to my friendly neighborhood Michael’s store and guess who has all the twistbands she wants? THIS GIRL! And now everyone in my office and at the coffee place I go every morning.
If you want to make a hair-band instead of hair-ties just measure out about 19.5 inches of your elastic and tie the same way. I LOVE the hair-bands, they are awesome.
See wasn’t that super easy? It’s almost embarrassing how cheap and easy these are to make. And you could even add beads, or paint or feathers or what-have-you, go wild!
