Using Wooden Beads In Your Hair

Everyone has seen beaded bracelets and beaded necklaces, but if you want to stand out from the crowd, you should consider trying out beads for your hair! This is a popular style in areas such as Africa or the Caribbean, and it can be worn by anyone with long hair. It is also great as part of a boho or gypsy style. Best of all, all you need to get started are some chunky wooden beads and some hair elastics. If you want to add something a little extra to make your style unique, you may be interested in putting an extra charm onto the end of your braids to complete your look.

Although it is possible to bead your hair with any sort of beads, wooden beads are a great choice for this look because of their weight – they are not too heavy and they are not too light. They are also durable, so they are unlikely to break or get damaged as they move about in your hair. Choose wooden beads with large holes, so that you will be able to thread them onto your hair easily. Small hair elastics are available from most hair styling shops. You can buy elastics which match with your hair, or you can choose elastics which stand out. Here is how to braid your hair with a strand of beads if you intend to add an eye-catching hair charm:

Section off a small portion of your hair from the back or from one of the sides, and tie the rest of your hair back so that it is out of the way. Split this section into three small strands and tightly braid it from your scalp until you have about one inch of unbraided hair left at the bottom. Secure this braiding with one of your hair elastics.

Now, depending on the length of your hair, choose a suitable number of wooden beads and thread them onto your braided section of hair. It may be easier to thread the beads onto your hair if you dampen the end slightly so that all of the strands stick together without splaying out. Although you can thread beads onto the whole length of the braid, you should remember that the more beads you thread, the heavier the braid will end up feeling, and if you put too many on, it could pull uncomfortably on your scalp. This will not bother you if you only use a few beads.

To finish off the beaded strand of hair, thread the unbraided section of your hair through the eye loop on the charm, then hook the end of this piece of hair back up so that it forms a loop with the charm hanging at the bottom. Secure the end of this loop under the wooden beads with another one of your small hair elastics. The charm should now hang nicely and securely under the beaded strands to create a fantastic and unique look which is perfect for the summer months.

Wooden beads are a very versatile piece of equipment. Wooden beads can be used in arts, crafts, jewellery and many different hair accessories.
