Hair Wrap Instructions
  • Take a small clump of hair and tie the rest into a ponytail.
  • This clump of hair can be thin or thick depending upon your choice.
  • Start braiding this bunch of hair from the roots to the ends of the lock of hair. Ensure that you start braiding from as close to the root as possible.
  • Tie the end of the braid with a small rubber band.
  • Take two strands of embroidery floss in colors of your choice that you want to flaunt in your hair wraps. They should measure twice the length of your hair.
  • Cut them and place the embroidery floss straight on a table.
  • Pick up the cut floss from the center point and tie them into a knot at the base of your braid.
  • Grab two strands of the same color (say, red) and place them straight along the length of your braid.
  • Grab the other two strands of another color (say, blue) and wrap them around your remaining hair in the braid and red floss in a circular spiral fashion.
  • While wrapping, make sure that neither hair nor blue floss should be visible through the red floss.
  • Continue wrapping the red floss for one inch and switch colors from hereon.
  • Wrap with red colored floss and switch again after an inch.
  • Continue wrapping the floss alternating between colors until you reach the end of any one colored band.
  • Add a charm to one of the strands of floss before you are about to end your wrapping.
  • Finish off the braid and tie the strands into a double knot to secure it tightly.
  • Cut off any lose strands.
  • Continue braiding other sections of your hair if you wish to hair wrap your entire hair. Add charms or beads to beautify your hair wraps.
  • Voila! You have beautiful and dazzling hair wraps.
  • Once you have mastered the basic technique of doing hair wraps, you can try your hand at different designs and patterns, such as cross patterns, striped patterns, and so on.
