I’m loving the metallic hair cuffs popping up on high and low-slung ponytails everywhere! My hair generally exists in two styles – long and straight or up in a ponytail. The hair cuff gives me an excuse to rock the ponytail more often = win!
Plus, the neat hair slides are an easy DIY – a.k.a. my favorite kind. Simply head to your local home improvement center and pick out your favorite plumbing rings and pipes, choose your metal – the pipes usually come in gold and brass colors, then ask for a piece cut between one and three inches – depending on the size you’re looking for. Voila – DIY hair cuff!
To wear the plumbing cuff, simply twist your ponytail in order to slide the ring up to the base of the head. If you’re worried about keeping the ring put, use an everyday elastic beneath the ring so that the ring rests on the elastic, giving it better staying power.
And if the idea of hunting through the aisles of a home improvement store gives you the willies, check out this gorgeous honeycomb-printed hair cuff here and these more affordable options at Free People: the cutout ponytail cuff and the stingray ponytail cuff.
