Show off your handsome waves and curls by letting your hair grow long. While it is growing out, you need a way to keep it out of your eyes. Headbands are great for controlling medium-length hair that is long enough to get in your eyes but too short for a ponytail. If all of the headbands in the stores look too girlie, you can make your own headband in a more masculine style.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Tape measure
- 1-inch-wide black elastic
- Sewing machine
Use a tape measure to measure around your head at the point where you want to wear the headband.
Cut a length of 1-inch-wide black elastic equal to the length you measured.
Fold the elastic in half, aligning the short ends.
Sew together the short ends by stitching 1/2 inch from the short ends. Use a straight stitch and a short stitch length. Sew backward and forward across the end several times to make a strong seam.
Turn the headband right side out to wear it. It will be slightly stretched when it is around your head.
