much a do about hair...

Here's a hair wrap that's as easy as 1, 2, 3... 'promise. 

This flower is a clip that I made and slipped 
onto the wrap for a little pop of color. 
I've got a little tutorial in the works, I promise to 
have it up just in time to sprinkle some 
local sugar on your Easter... 

1. Get an old t-shirt.  Beg, borrow, steal... whatever it takes-- you could even, perhaps, sneak into your husband's closet and maybe take an old"ish" shirt of his, one that you're seventy-five percent sure he won't miss, and a hundred percent sure he'll never suspect you're wearing around town, on top of your head as, say, a fabulous new hair piece, I'm just saying... if you wanted to... you could. 

Here I'm using an XL shirt,
just so happens Charlie is an XL, hmmm...

2. Cut that shirt to pieces. Three to be exact. Each about 3-4 inches wide.  

Is it just me, or do the cuts make for a
pretty cool t-shirt, another craft in the making perhaps?

"Look ma, no straight lines!"
No worries, this wrap is very forgiving of crooked cutters,
trust me I'm the "crookedest of them all".
3. That's a wrap. Really... that's it. Now drape a t-shirt piece around your neck like a lei, depending on the shirt size used you can double it up with a little twist (see inspiration link below).  Pretty much any size other than keiki (kids) will require/ allow for doubling. Then simply push it back up over your face and forehead pushing your hair back as desired. Wear one wrap at a time or all three at once. Style away.

See, 'told ya, 1, 2, 3.
But, don't take my word for it. Here's the inspiration for this awesomely easy style project and a ton of variations on it too.

And here's a super cool Kailua shop if you want some cool style without the stealing, wink-wink, and crafting.

Hang on to those leftover t-shirt bits, I think I saw something, somewhere that we can use them for. Meet ya for more island stylin' next week? ...same time? ...same place?

live sweet, 


  1. What a cute and creative idea!!! Save $ and make exactly what you want is a win win for me!!! Great post :)

    Btw I made a button now. Thanks for the idea :)

  2. Oh, seriously way cute... I have been wearing my head wrap around town-- everywhere. Every once in a while I get a little "high school" insecure and think the guy in the checkout line at Times knows I'm wearing my husband's t-shirt on my head, not that I'm admitting that I stole my husband's t-shirt or anything. But if you make it, You M-U-S-T make it, rest assured each time I wrangle all my shopping bags in to the "not so shopping bag friendly" bathroom at certain local grocery stores I look in the mirror and reassure myself with "please, that looks nothing like your husbands t-shirt"-- still not admitting anything. ;)

    Yay! I'm on my way to grab a button and share some Aloha. xoxo
