So this is going to be a super short, super easy tutorial.
When I went to H&M I bought two metal ponytail cuffs. I really like them, but for $4.99 each I couldn't bring myself to purchase any more.
I thought I could dupe it somehow, so I went to the hardware store to check out plumbing gear or something of that sort. Nothing really caught my eye so I ended up walking out empty handed.
Next I went to the thrift store, I had given up, when I found these napkin holders for a quarter each. Lightbulb! I thought it might work...
I have really thick hair so the larger width didn't bother me, but for extra insurance I glued a bobby pin to one side (that way I could pin it to the hair-tie).
The one on the left is from H&M, the one on the right is my version.
The H&M one is connected directly to the hair-tie. Also, its on a spring so you can pull it open.
Here is how the H&M one works:
Now for my version:
- Tie your hair.
- Tie your hair a second time near the bottom of the tail
- Slip on your napkin holder
- Slide the bobby pin unto your top ponytail
- Undo your bottom ponytail
Super easy right?
You can always spray paint other napkin holders gold/silver and ta-da, you have your own metal ponytail cuff.
Thanks for reading.
