There are always events happening and we girls like to go all the way when it comes to fixing ourselves up. We often start while still in the shower with lotions or creams. We continue as we dress and then add makeup. We have a lot of choice in lipstick or eye shadow, but often are limited as to the color of our tresses. We might cut it or braid it or do some kind of bun, but I personally never use dyes or the likes of that. I do like to use other types of adornment though. There are things not unlike jewlery I use on occasion. For me, I find navy blue hair accessories work out just great.
Whether just a simple scrunchie, or elastic bands in a pony tail. Something more elegant like flowers or bows for more formal occasions there is always something to choose from. I have a drawer full just of stuff like that.
Due to her recent graduation, I wanted to find something matching for my niece and myself. We are quite close and when I mentioned the idea she was onboard. In fact she was encouragingly excited about the idea of me doing something different to her looks then she had ever done for herself. And it was such a simple thing. So we both wore light weight, light colored plaid flannel shirts, dark skinny jeans, pony tails, and had the most awesome leather hair bands. She got lots of compliments as most people had never even seen these before. I had only one, but she looked supreme with a daisy chain of 4. Her cut, much longer then my shoulder length, ends about the middle of her back so there was plenty to work with.
So we started by shopping online. Always being style, but also price conscious we considered several types of things we could try. She will only graduate from high school once. Since she was wearing a cap, one of the options we looked at would never work. But there are other occasions where a head wrap would be perfect. The cap was an accessory in and of itself so although we liked several of the various items below we settled on one. Isn't it funny that what we chose ran me about $60, where anything else would have been much cheaper? Anyway, the leather bands were the perfect choice for this occasion and now she wears them doing anything from barrel riding to formal dances.
One of the things I like is they can be used like the standard elastic band that they are, but if you position the knot just right, you can loop one of these around your braid and just hook the loop over the knot. If niece hadn't loved the leather bands, this would have been what we wore to her graduation. And we only would have needed to get one order to fulfill our needs. We would have used them in our hair and on one wrist each.
