Default Removable Hair Wraps and dread falls

Hello!

My sister and I are starting a face painting and glitter tattoo booth for local fairs this summer. We were talking about bringing my bows to the booth too - but I don't think it "fits in". I thought about making up some removable hair wraps and doing regular hair wrapping. For the removable hair wraps - what would you suggest I use? I was thinking a bobby pin or a small snap clip? Would a small claw clip work better? Any suggestions?

Also - does anyone have any instructions or know who to make dread lock falls? It looks like you use wool. I thought that may be a good thing for tweens or teens. They are kind of fun and spunky.

Thanks in advance!

I started making dreads etc but had to stop when I moved back to the US. I hope to get around to it again one day for me to use in my own hair. But I know of a great place to go for tutorials, and they sell some of the supplies.

You need to register to post, but that is a great place to get a lot of info. If I am understanding you correctly, you want the wool ones, the ones that look a little more puffy? That is done with wool roving, there are a few techniques to make them into dreads, they should have the info on doctored locks, I am by no means an expert and those ladies can make some truly amazing stuff! If you are looking for the smoother ones, those are made with kanekalon hair, and the hair is ratted, twisted then heat sealed with steam or by boiling.

As for what to attach them with some use a ponytail holder, or you can also use a piece of lace, which is then tied to the bun you make to keep it in your hair. I have to go get my husband (he's sick) or I'd go more into how you attach them to the holder, but it's different for dreads than for loose falls. Also a dreadband is done differently, but there's tutorials around too. HTH and good luck, its a lot of fun!

You're welcome, and yes, it is a lot of fun I've not made wool ones, but I've watched a lot of tutorials on them.

There is a girl that goes by Rivet Licker that does video tutorials, this is a link to how she makes wool dreads:
