The easiest, most comfortable headband you'll ever make!

This doesn't really deserve a tutorial. It's soooo easy. I've been wearing these headbands for years. In fact, my favorite brown headband is going strong after 2 years of constant use. The trick to the most comfortable headband ever? Old tights!

I get headaches if I wear regular headbands so I have to wear fabric wraps. I often just cut a piece of jersey material and tie my curls up in that. But one day, a fairly new pair of the-perfect-brown-shade tights got a rip. I was so bummed and thought, how can I reuse these? Thus my tight-to-headband obsession was born.

Cheap tights are easy to come by at Target's end-of-season clearance. I happened to find a few of their tights at Goodwill and it was 50% off day so huge score. 50 cent tights!
Cut the toe part off one leg. 
Cut the other end around the thigh part. If they are new tights, take a minute to stretch them out. Then put the band on your head and tie it up in the back.
That's literally it. This 25 cent headband will last for years and see lots of wear.
 I wear my hair up like this all the time. It's code for, "I didn't feel like washing my hair." I didn't even have to style it for these photos - it was already up in a crazy mess. Did I mention I sleep in these buns, too? The things you can get away with if you have a good headband.

I used to do that in high school and had completely forgotten - thanks for the reminder! On another note, you have the most gorgeous complexion, am jealous.

@sheppy Blogger has been doing something funny to my photos - I look airbrushed! So weird but I guess I'll take it. :)

@onel It's so easy and comfy!

Fabulous! I'm off to find my old tights as we speak... Now, if only I had your cute glasses and dimples to accessorise with my own brown curls...
