De-tangle for a re-tangle.  Take note in women’s hair history and get inspired by styles that have swept us away for centuries.  Today’s modern day chick typically opts for the up do for special occasions, however that’s not the case anymore.  Time to treat everyday as a special occasion!  Thakoon showed intricate hairstyles with woven colored and textured materials up and down his runway.  More creative and eye-catching Fall/Winter trends: bold fabric combos.  The other “PS” love of our lives, Proenza Schouler gets the gold medal for taking printed fabrics and infusing together in unexpected, j’amazing ways.  Get inspired by these two trends and create style of your own, especially since the hair comb is making a comeback!

To create, Pick up hair combs from you local drug or beauty store.  I’m a huge Goody fan, personally! Rip pieces of cotton material into 1” strips.  Leave a little bit of a frayed edge will give you more texture.  If you want a cleaner look, cut your fabric strips with scissors.  P.S.- If you cant find fabric, cut up an old tee that may be lying around.  Double knot two 12” strips on one end of a tooth.  Weave the fabric in and out of the teeth, and repeat with the second piece.  Double knot both pieces together on the last tooth, and snip the ends.  You’re ready to rock the up do and adorn your hair with the ultimate DIY accessory.  Get creative with your hair style using bobby pins, and other styling tools for various looks.  P.S.- if you love to rock the high-bun, add a comb to the base of your top knot to top off!
