As a busy mom of three little boys, I don’t always have time to do my hair. (Like, never, actually! I try to sneak in sessions with my flatiron while the boys are distracted with a cartoon… IF I have to leave the house. If I don’t, my hair looks like the bus driver from South Park’s… i.e., bird’s nest. Hmm, a bird’s nest headband sounds kind of cute and funny, actually!) I think I need some headband action to disguise my less-than-perfect hair!
Notes from a very red kitchen just hosted a Headband Tutorial Roundup, and there were some super headbands represented!
The roundup was full of inspiration, but this rose and pearl headband by Whitney was one of my favorites. The grey roses are pretty – and grey is such an elegant and unexpected color choice for roses!
This scrappy leather headband by Missie Krissie is super cute, too! I love the texture of the different leathers used for the leaves. I have a few leather garments I’ve purchased at the Goodwill bins ($.99 a pound!) that would work well for this!
