Do you ever have those days where you have freshly washed and styled hair, but it’s driving you crazy? You want to just wrap it up to get out of your face, but you don’t want to ruin your freshly style do! That’s where the Creasless Hair Tie comes in!
After getting some creaseless hair ties in a package earlier this year – I’ve been obsessed. I just love that I don’t have to worry about ruining my hair by putting a crease in it. And apparently I’m not the only one who loves them. After searching online to see where I could buy them, I found out that they are being sold for crazy high prices. I’m talking like, upwards of $8 of six hair ties – it’s crazy! Of course, being the DIY’er that I am – I decided to make my own. So, I’m sharing how to make DIY Creaseless Hair Ties!
These are seriously so easy my girls could make them. The best part about it is you might already have some of the supplies you need at home.
Ruler or measuring tape
Fold over elastic
A tutorial isn’t really a need for this DIY because all you basically do it tie the elastic. The directions are pretty self-explanatory, but for my visual folks, I also added an image of how to tie these.
Basically, there are 4 simple steps to creating this DIY Creaseless Hair Tie.
Step 1. Measure your elastic out to the size. This will depend on the thickness of your hair and how many times you want it to wrap around your ponytail. I have a good amount of hair, but it’s not super thick, so I measured out 10 inches – that enough to wrap it twice.
Step 2. Next, you are going to lightly burn the exposed ends. This will keep your hair tie from fraying over time.
Step 3. Then tie the two ends of your hair tie and pull it tight to prevent it from un-tieing.
Step 4. You’re done, girl! Tie your hair up and give these babies a try!
Seriously, how easy was that? I want to point out that Hobby Lobby now has a large assortment of fold over elastic. I loved the printed elastic, but they also have solid colors, too! They are regularly priced at $2.99. However, I happened to get them while they were 50% off! I paid $1,49 for 3 yards, which can make close to thirty hair ties for $1.50!
That’s a steal compared to paying upwards of $5-$8 for 8 hair ties, right? Not to mention you have full control over the colors and prints. These DIY Creaseless Hair Ties, are so easy to make, stylish, and they don’t put a crease in your hairstyle.
