The hair are the joy and the sorrow of every woman. We often do not know how to style them, but the solutions are within reach. With a few simple steps, you can create really chic fashion accessories . In this tutorial we will see how to make a cotton hair band . It’s perfect for a boho look and instantly transforms any outfit .

Before making a cotton hair band. Prepare everything you need. Choose a suitable fabric. The possibilities are practically endless. For the summer season cotton and jersey are the most suitable. For the cold season instead, the velvet will give a glamorous touch to the look. It would be better to opt for stretch fabrics. They will keep the hair in better order and will not change. Then put a sewing set on the work surface.

Measure the circumference of your head. Remember, however, to add a few centimeters. In this way you will not have problems with the different seams. Once this is done, mark the measurement on the fabric. Use a tailor’s chalk so that it does not get damaged. Draw a sufficiently large rectangle on the fabric. The height will be exactly twice as desired for the cotton hairband. Carefully cut out the fabric with a sharp pair of scissors. Regarding the length, remember to add about 15 centimeters. The extra piece is necessary to make the main seam of the band.


If for a personalized look especially suitable for the summer, we intend to make a band to keep the hair in place , we can create one that looks like a real turban . The operation is not at all difficult, but nevertheless requires a certain skill in wrapping the chosen fabric . Regarding this, here is a guide on how to make a headband with this original shape .



The bands are certainly among the most used accessories not only by women, but also by many men. Their widespread diffusion is due above all to the fact that they satisfy a need for personal comfort without sacrificing the appearance of the wearer. Practical and useful to keep the hair in order (usually when they are long), they are in fact used to give an extra touch to your daily look . The bands are commercially available in different materials and colors, but make them independently makes them unique and original. In this guide two very simple methods will be illustrated, which can be put into practice. Here is how to create a headband.

First of all you need to get the fabric you want to use to make your own band, choosing it according to the model, the material and the color you prefer. The fabric can easily be bought at any specialist retailer or comfortably obtained from old knits or rags at home. During this first phase of purchase, however, it is good to remember to look for a fabric that is as cheap as possible, but of a sufficiently large size, in such a way as to be able to remedy it, in case the cut was wrong


Remember our grandmothers who knit at home? They were really good and from their golden hands, they came out, scarves, sweaters, woolen shoes , gloves and many other useful things for us children and for the beautification of the house. At present, women who work crochet or knitting need to be clearly decreasing, partly due to lack of time and, due to a lack of passion, the handicraft work is falling sharply . But some things are really very easy to make, and even a few skilled people can try their hand at making a hair band . Let’s see how to make a wool hair band in a simple and fast way.

To make this item, use number 3 knitting needles and a medium-sized wool. Start 20 meshes to start and then continue with a straight and a reverse until you reach the desired width. When you reach the size that you think is right for the circumference of the head to which it is intended, finish the work by crossing the stitches on top of each other and then with hidden stitches, close the two sides of the band you have created.

At this point, fold the rectangle of cloth from the long side in half. Baste the whole length. Try the cotton hair band. Make sure it is not too tight or too wide. Next, sew the basted side. Keep the thread a few millimeters under the basting. For a precise job, you prefer needle and thread. If you use the machine instead, program it on the zig zag stitch. After each stitch, pull the thread.
