We are literally in the dog days of summer and holy cow is it hot! We just went through a massive heat wave here in central Illinois and it’s finally started to cool off a couple degrees. It’s so important to keep cool during these steamy days by drinking your water, wearing your hair up and staying indoors. We’ve noticed that hair accessories are very popular at the moment and it only leads me to believe it’s because of this heat. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of hair accessories out there that people love year round, but women with long hair are really trying to find ways right now to keep that hair off their shoulders and out of their face.
Here are some of my favorites that are perfect for this sauna:
Easy Elastic Headband – This is a really cute headband that I tried (above in the purple), but my elastic headband kept twisting and turning, so it didn’t quite turn out how I expected it to. The scalloped edging is a nice feminine look that will turn anyone into a girlie girl. This crocheted headband is a great way to use up leftover yarn.
Butterfly Bobby Pins – These adorable hair accessories are great for adults and even cuter for kids. Little girls get hot running around the backyard when it’s this hot out, so put her hair up with these. Add a little sparkle with some rhinestones for an extra special touch she won’t be able to resist.
Center Motif Hairband – If you have long, thick hair then you’ll really love this crocheted headband. The crochet design is nice and wide allowing it to hold back more of your hair than a skinny headband might. The square motif in the middle (which looks a bit like a flower) is made in rounds, while the band itself is worked in rows.
Hairpin Lace Headband – If you’re looking for a bit of a fancier crochet design then you might like this headband. The aqua blue color is perfect for summer, but you can obviously use any crochet colors you want. A hairpin loom is needed to complete this headband, but it is so worth it!
Not-so Simple Kerchief – A fun crochet pattern like this is great for both kids and adults. It’ll help keep the hair out of your face, and if you get it wet, it’ll keep your head nice and cool. It’s definitely not a beginner crochet pattern, but if you’ve been crocheting for a while you should be able to work it up without any issues.
