Summer, sun, back to ibiza style. As soon as the holidays start you see them everywhere, girls with brightly colored strands of wool in their hair. Sometimes with charms and beads, sometimes not. Set by one of the many street vendors, for a few cents in distant warm countries. But what if you stay in our (just as warm) little country. There are no street traders who will put this together for you. Yes, maybe one can be found lost, somewhere at a fair or in the big city. But then you have to search well. 🤫Sssttt 🤫it really isn't that hard.
So quickly to the action. Buy a bag of cheap embroidery thread, some beads or charms, grab a small elastic (loom) and get started.
First, find your colors together and make a strand that is 2 times the length of the hair length.
Take a thin strand of hair, make a braid. In which you add your skein of yarn in the first strokes. Then finish the braid.
Because you have doubled the strand in the braid, you always have 2 strands that you use.
There are several ways to tie it, but this is a fairly simple way.
Take 2 threads of the same color and twist them around the braid and other threads
Do this 4 times and then you make a knot
That's how you tie a knot!
Twist both strands around the strand, but do not pull it tight. Hold a loop with your index finger.
Wrap your thread around the strand and then pull the thread through the loop.
Put this on. Push the wire to make it fit in well with the rest. Always do this in this way, so you keep the transition in color nice and tight.
Repeat this in a pattern of colors and sometimes add a bead, until you reach the bottom of your elastic or when the hair becomes too thin. Secure the whole with a few knots and cut off the excess thread.
You can decorate the strand with feathers, etc. If you did everything right, it will look like the picture below.
By the way, you shouldn't want to do it directly in the hair. You can also make it without the braid and use it later in your braid or hair strand.
On average, a wrap stays nice for about 3 weeks, depending on how often you swim or wash your hair.
It can be removed very easily. Some cut the strands of their hair as a reminder, but you can also just carefully cut the knots at the bottom and gently pull it apart as you put it together. (But then vice versa)

Wauw! Respect, ik heb hier totaal geen geduld voor. Het ziet er altijd zo mooi uit!
wauw! Vind dit zo onwijs mooi, ik ben nu 19 en zou het zo in mijn haar doen. Fleurt altijd zo erg op, leuk en mooi klein detail
Ik wou dit vroeger als kind altijd in mijn haar maar mocht niet van mijn ouders!
Wat een superleuk idee om op deze manier je haar te versieren. Ik vind het ook zo mooi fleurig en vrolijk!
Tja, ik ben geen meisjesmoeder. Ik ben altijd wel enigszins jaloers op moeders, die dit dan doen bij hun dochter. Ziet er prachtig uit. Als ik een meisje was, zou ik het wel weten. gr. Jeannet
