Tie me up!

My plan to budget by not getting any hair cuts has been working quite well! I've officially not had a trim since December (besides DIY bang trims) and have saved a good $120 thus far with my frugality. Woo hoo! 

Lately I've been playing around with my longer tresses quite a bit (thanks to a quick "how to do your hair cute" course from Hetty) and am really inspired to start wearing a head scarf! After all I do love thrifting for vintage silk scarves and with a lovely (and extra helpful) tutorial from The Nearsighted Owl (link) - I'll be set! Just look how cute she looks with that scarf on!:


 Ah! Adorable! Of course my hair isn't quite so short or red, but I am sure I can make it work. I also really enjoy the fact that one of the tutorial steps involves removing your cat off your scarf! What a great lady Rachele is!

In other hair-wear news, I am thinking of making some new felt and crochet hair bands for my craft booth and was wondering - what are your thoughts on hair accessories? Are you a fascinator fan?


  1. I love hair clips. They are ugly and 90s but the only things that seem to scoop hair rather than slick it back like elastics. You could make those pretty!

  2. I agree, you can make them cool again

  3. I'm not a huge fan of headbands, because they always seem too tight (maybe I just have an enormous head ... >_<). I love fascinators and hair clips though! One thing that I like to do is add a big hair clip to a plain beret - that way I can wear my collection all through winter as well ^_^
