DIY Hair Cuff

Say goodbye to scrunchies and hair tie's to welcome in a new era of hair accessories: the hair cuff. Although it still has to be worn with a hair tie underneath I am quite confident that this accessory is a brilliant replacement for the hair tie. It's stylish, modern and wearable.

I was looking for more of a imperfect hair cuff, something crumpled maybe so here is my take on the hair cuff:

Stuff you need:
A sheet of aluminum
Spray paint

1. Cut the sheet of aluminum foil so the length is enough to go around a ponytail and width is about 5 cm.

2. Spray paint it whatever color you want. I think gold would look really good, but currently don't have any in my stash of spray paint. Meanwhile place your wire in hot water to make it more pliable.

3. Fold the edges inwards.

4. Place your wire lengthwise on the foil and fold the foil until it is one strip.

 5. Bend it so that it is in the shape of a cuff. Then bend both the wire ends so that they form hooks.

All there is left do is wear with style!
