DIY: Hair Comb


*UPDATE! See the step-by-step instructions here.

This is a super simple project. All you need is a hair comb and embroidery floss. I had a pack of hair combs that I got at Walgreens a long time ago  (Like 10 or 12 combs for $4- they still have them). Plus vintage embroidery floss from forever ago.

I'm going to keep these old photos up for kicks and giggles. :) But I decided to make another comb and take a few photos.


I wrapped in a V-shape pattern. I didn't use any glue - just tucked ends under the next color and tied off the last piece. I've used it a couple of different ways but this is my fave - an updo, 90's style.  I feel like Rachel from Friends would do her hair this way. Love these combs - they really tame my thick curls!

*Update: Forgot to mention that this layout is from Pugly Pixel.

Do you have a post on how to do the hairstyle?

The HCG, or the Human Chronic Gonadotropin, is a hormone that controls the metabolic functions through the hypothalamus. This is usually produced by pregnant women through their placenta. However, the HCG Diet may also apply to non-pregnant women and even to men as the HCG is found in every human tissue, as research provides. http://www.activexdev.com
