DIY Hair Wraps


Hey everyone! So this topic is on hair wraps and how to do them. This is very basic and so easy!!! Most people probably know how to do this (and if you do and you're reading this, you're kinda wasting your time), but if you don't here are some easy steps to learn how to do it.


Here's what the finished product should look like:






1. Start by getting a small strand of hair and braiding it. 


 


2. Then, get some string and tie it to the top of the braid.




3. Then go over and under and pull and that should make a knot.


  


4. Keep doing that a couple times and move that to the next string.


  



5. Keep repeating those steps going all the way down the braid and when you're done get all the strings and tie them in a knot.





Enjoy!!!

  1. Thanks! I'm obviously a little slow on the uptake, but I've always wanted to know how to do this! Nice pics, nice explanation, even for the incredibly simple (like myself).

    1. To be honest there really isn't an easy way to remove a hair wrap. I spent like an hour trying to remove mine and I lost a lot of hair through the process. First you have to cut the end of the wrap off and then use some baby sewing scissors and a seam cutter to cut the string. It is kind of a long process and it may be easier to have a friend help. Hope this helped!! :) XOXO- Tara and Bre If you have any other questions feel free to comment or email!

    2. I'm gonna try it with a piece of string to make it as a clip so I can take it out easy

    3. Mine just come right out after about a month or a few weeks. If you do it right, you can just slide it off without a problem.

    4. I actually had this done in Vegas. There is no way to take it out. I ended up cutting it out. It lasted almost a month. because of the tugging (I think) of the string, I ended up getting a little bump on my scalp. It went away but it did itch. That's why you do it underneath where if you have to cut it, it wont be that noticeable.

  3. Great tutorial! When I was a teen, we would go to the beach every summer and there were always little places to have this done. I wanted a hair wrap so bad!! Now I can do one for my two tween daughters and myself. You're never too old right? Thanks!

  7. You don't have to tie it like that, you can simply wrap the string around your hair. That way it's way easier to get out. The first time I did it on a friend I tied it around her hair like that and she said it took forever to get out. If you wrap the strings around the braid it works the same. Hope this helps!

  17. WI'll you wash it regularly with the rest if your hair?

  18. Hi!
    You use embroidery floss (usually 3 rolls for a buck at any craft store or the dreaded W) and you wash it with the rest of your hair.
    I found over the years, the easiest way to remove it if I didn't want to wait for it to fall out, is to get a razor, and shave the string off one side, all the way down. You just have to be careful to watch, so you know when you're through the floss and don't shave your hair. It can be time consuming (my hair is to my butt) but it's super easy :)
