Looking for an elegant way to fight frizz this summer? If your hair is anything like mine then you know that heat and humidity can equal only one thing: bushy out-of-control fly-aways.
An easy solution is using a chic headband to hold all your fringe in place. But finding a hair accessory that’s cute, effectiveÂ and eco-friendly can lead you on an endless hunt. That’s why I’m happy to bring you this easy DIY tutorial that will show you how to make an adorable upcycled headband in less than 10 minutes!
Supplies: T-shirt and scissors
Step 1) Lay your t-shirt flat and cut off the bottom hem.
Step 2) Cut a 1.5″ piece straight along the raw edge and repeat until you have three total.Â Cut through each piece to make each loop a long strip.
Step 3) Grab one end of each strip and tug so that it elongates and curls in on itself.
Step 4) Tie all three stretched strips together.
Step 5) Create one long braid and tie a knot at the end.
Now you can begin to experiment with your long cotton braid. I like to wrap mine around twice, knotting it in the back so that it stays put. Play with your headband and see what other creative ways you can find to keep the frizz at bay!
