Here somethings you would be needing for this project.

Brush thoroughly and secure with a band and leave out some of the band . Unto the next one 🙂


On my bed post, I attached the extended band to it. There was no one to help me hold the hair extensions while braiding. After that, attach the ribbon and secure lightly because you would unravel it later. Then braid the hair extension and ribbon together.

After securing it with stitches … cut the excess out. NOTE: You should measure the circumference of you head  and deduct some inches so that the elastic would have space to give the braided part some grip.

Cut the excess and secure the frayed part with some heat, a candle can be used to do this or a hot glue gun, if you have one
