hair wrap tutorial

July 11, 2011

The summer always inspires me to do some vaguely hippie-ish thing to my hair. Last year it was braids and beads. This time around the hair wrap was calling my name. As soon as I finished my wrap, I realized how cool an Ombré one would have been. Oh well, there’s always next time!
Supplies: hair elastic, bobby pins, embroidery floss (the length for each string should be 3X your hair length)

[Step 1: Securely fasten elastic near the root of your hair. Use bobby pins to hold stray hair out of the way.]
[Step 2: Tie the first string in a single knot]
[Step 3: Make a loop with the thread]
[Step 4: Draw the string through the loop from back to front. Close the loop by pulling in an upward and outward motion.]
[Keep knotting until desired length has been achieved. Don’t cut the string when you’re done! It can be picked up again later on.]
[The colors you are finished using get wrapped up along with your hair. When you want to repeat a color just separate it from your hair and the strings and begin knotting.]
[Continue wrapping until you almost reach the end. Leave the last 1/2 inch of your hair free. If you wrap it all the way to the tip of your hair it will start sliding off. I left the ends of mine free, but you can tie in beads or feathers if you’d like.]

    This reminds me of when I was younger, and the holidays my parents would take me on. When I got back to school I would have to cut it out.

      You (carefully) cut it off at the bottom. Then you can gently pull it off starting at the bottom and working your way up.

    How do you tie off the end? I tried this in my sisters hair my just wrapping the floss around but it slid out the next day. How do I keep it from unraveling or sliding off?

      I stopped knotting about 1/2- 3/4 inch from the bottom of my hair. It stayed in with no problem. If you knot all the way down to the bottom it's more likely to fall out. Hope this helps!
