in august

2.jpgHello, friends. The end of August is only a few days away, which means that summer is also coming to an end. I can’t quite believe it. Let’s take a look back at how crazy and fun the past few weeks have been.

8We took a road trip to one of my favourite Canadian cities.

Let’s all enjoy our last weekend in August.

bow tie hair clip diy

2.jpgI am often on the hunt for cute hair accessories. The only problem is that they can be very expensive, and I generally only wear them a few times before I grow bored of them. I also do that with my clothes. Shoes and purses though, are another story.

Now that you have some useless insight into my personality, I’m going to show you how to make several simple, and better yet inexpensive, Bow Tie Hair Clips.

1.jpg1. Purchase small, multi-coloured bow ties (I got mine from the Dollar Store).

3.jpg2. Purchase hair clips (I prefer bobby pins).

4.jpg3. Adhere the bow ties to the clips. A glue gun will work best, but because I chose bow ties with adhesive already applied, I simply needed to peel and stick them onto the bobby pins.

5.jpgThis craft cost less than $2.50 to make, and took a total of 5 minutes. That’s approximately $0.50 per minute. While those would be horrible minimum wage earnings, that’s a more than reasonable DIY experience!

hair tie diy.

IMG_1.jpgtoday on hello scarlett, i am going to show you how to make the world’s easiest hair accessory. literally. there will be no gluing, stitching, or assembling.

IMG_2.jpgthis is what you will need:

– material of your choice

– scissors

IMG_3.jpgcut your hair tie to the length of your arm. i doubled mine since i wrap it twice around (in an attempt to quell my curls).

IMG_4.jpgthen tie,

IMG_5.jpgand enjoy!

i first started doing wearing this look a few weeks ago when my hair became long enough to put behind my ears, but still so short that i couldn’t keep it back in an elastic. lately, i’ve also been wearing it in its natural curly state hoping that it will grow faster.

IMG_6.jpg IMG_7.jpgthe first time that i did this diy, i made my hair tie out of twine. it blended so well with my hair that everyone thought that i had somehow tied strands into two bows. to make sure that you could see this tutorial, i chose bright pink. truman also insisted on being in these photos (but we were moving too quickly and they came out as a blur). he’s such a camera hog. ;-)

have a beautiful weekend, friends.

hair.

if you have been following hello scarlett, you might have noticed that my hair is very short and very blonde. i have had short hair for most of my life! i find it easier to manage, more fun to style, and most of all, i feel like myself when it is cut short. however, it has never been so short as it has been over the past 2 years.

so, dear readers, i feel as if it is time for a change. a few weeks ago i had my hair colored dark and started parting it more in the middle. (this latter part is a big deal since my signature look has always been side-swept bangs.) the goal? “gimme a head with hair, long beautiful hair.”
