An easy way to jazz up your daily hair style is using pretty homemade hair ties. No matter if you are a french braid expert or if you wear just a ponytail, a pretty hair tie is always a nice detail to wear. Today I will show you three ways to customize your hair ties.
#1 Beaded hair tie
Option number 1: make a beaded hair tie. To do so, you will need a 10 in. string, small beads and 2 large beads.
Fold the string in the middle and make a knot to attach the string around the tie. Leave the knot a little loose around the tie, it will make it easier to wear. Pass the beads on each string side and finish with a knot. The finish look depend of the kind of beads you gonna use. As example, you can make a boho hair tie using wood beads or a fancy one using peals and gold beads.
#2 The tassels hair tie
Option number 2: the tassels hair tie. You will need some embroidery floss, 4 jewelry rings and pliers. A quick reminder if you never have done tassels before: cut a piece of cardboard of 2 x 2 in. and wrap the thread around it. Make a knot on top with an piece of thread and cut all the bottom floss. Cut a piece of thread, wrap it around the tassel and make a tight knot to finish.
Make a second tassel in a matching color. Use the pliers to pass a jewelry ring on top of each tassel and around the tie. Use a fourth ring to attach them together.
Make them in any color shade you like. Wear it one at the time, or make a rainbow ponytail.
#3 Pearls hair tie
For this last option, you will need a 15 in. piece of string and 8 to 10 pearls. Start by making a knot to attach the string to the tie. Pass a pearl into the string and make a loop with the string around the tie. Pass a second pearl to the string and make a loop around the tie. And so on until half of the tie is covered by pearls.
Wrap the string back to the starting point. Make a loop between each pearl. When both string ends are together make a double knot and cut the extra length. And done!
Have fun trying different beads and color combination to make cute hair ties.
