Handmade/Homemade: Summer Hair

by Kira @ Her New Leaf on August 16, 2012

Handmade/Homemade, my series in which I collect wonderful handmade shops, and Esther shows you how to get the look with unique DIY tutorials, has been so fun to put together each week! I have such a great time browsing through so many beautiful shops online, and it makes me so happy to hear from readers when they are inspired to make purchases from these talented artisans!

To better showcase each week’s theme, I have decided to post the two collections (the “Handmade” and the “Homemade”) together each week, and where possible, carry that theme through additional posts throughout the week. This week’s theme is “Summer Hair,” inspired by free and romantic summer hairstyles. Check back tomorrow when I’ll share my own tutorial for an adorable summer hair accessory. Have fun clicking through these fantastic products and tutorials! - Kira

This week’s Handmade/Homemade is centered around hair. I have pretty short hair, so there’s not a ton I can do with it. For all you girls out there with long flowing locks, I envy you. There are a TON of fun DIY hair ideas online that I can’t do. I’ve even got a pinboard called ‘Things I can’t do to my hair.’

I’ve collected an assortment of tutorials that will be useful to both those with short and long hair. Enjoy! - Esther

These ideas are so awesome! Throughout the summer, I have basically called my hair ties my best friends and have worn my long hair in a ponytail or bun…nothing really creative, I’m afraid! I’m hoping to get out of my rut soon! :)
I must say that your website, overall, has inspired me to check out etsy for my upcoming gift-giving (to others and to me) needs. These small business owners are so talented and need our support!
