DIY Hair Ties

These hair ties are super soft and stretchy, meaning they won't snag or leave a dent when you tie it up, and they're super easy and cheap to make - 1 metre of elastic (99p) will give you four 9-inch bands. I made a bunch of these in lovely pastel colours to give to friends as a little gift and I made a neutral set for myself.

  1. These soft hair ties are my favourite, they're so much better at preventing hair breakage! Have been meaning to buy some more but this DIY looks so simple I might try making my own - not to mention they are usually quite pricey in store!

  6. You know, I never understood why there are so many shops selling these ties. They are SO simple to make. And, as you said, not expensive. We buy 1 hair tie at a shop when we could make 5 of them with that money.
    They are super cute! :)
