  • Sparkle Star Headband DIY

    by Kortney Campbell on May 10, 2012

    It’s really easy to become absolutely obsessed with hair accessories (don’t judge), but they can get expensive. That’s what we love about DIY crafts! We had baby bows on the blog yesterday, so figured we should probably share a “big girl” hair piece as well!

    What You Need:

    • Ribbon
    • Glittery scrapbooking paper
    • Hot glue gun
    • Scissors
    • Star stencil

    Directions:

    1. Measure the amount of ribbon that will fit around your head, and then double it so that there is plenty of room to tie.
    2. Trace the star stencil (I printed one out online) onto the back of the glittery paper and cut the stars out.
    3. Starting in the middle of the ribbon hot glue the stars on.

    Here are a few of my favorite styling ideas for this lovely glittery headband. My staple curly hair-do is shown in the first picture. This style is how I picture fairies wearing their hair (I mean that in the best way possible). Just tie the ribbon over messy curls and giggle a lot, people might mistake you for a woodland creature.

    This sparkly top knot is probably my favorite. I’m trying to refrain from wearing a top knot ever day… but it’s just so darn cute & easy! I always feel a little Parisian in a top knot. Add a striped shirt and I’m basically eating macaroons under the Eiffel tower.

    To copy this look, just rake all of your hair into a super high pony & fasten it with a bungee that is a similar color to your hair. Tease the pony tail like crazy and then spin it around the base and pin it all in place. Tie the head band around your head and you’re good to go. This whole process takes 2 minutes… Literally.

    For something a bit more retro you can try this star spangled beehive (bonus points if you haven’t washed your hair in several days). You can watch my beehive tutorial here. I especially like the idea of a ponytail in the back, my hair is a little too short to wear it like that, but if you have long hair I encourage you to try it.

    So go watch the tutorial, make sure you tease until your hair is standing straight up and when it’s all said & done slap this star headband on.

    Hair accessories are so much fun. There are so many ways to wear them and they spice up even the simplest of outfits! What are some of your favorite hair accessories these days? We’d love to see them in the comments below!

    Katie, you always have the most fabulous lipstick….I’m so envious and so slow to crawl away from my lipsmakers…(i’m 12). I’ve seen so many pictures of women wearing hot pink and am kind of in love. Any recommendations?

    Rachel-

    Sorry it has taken me so long to reply! My current favorite hot pink lipstick is “funny face” by nars. They have great colors and don’t test on animals! I’ll have to do a bright lip stick post soon to share all of my favorites!
