EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
To decide on the length you want your hair wrap, first decide where you want it in your hair. Most people choose to place their hair wraps either at the top of their head or behind their ear.
Measure your hair in inches, then minus one inch to find your best length. Please remember curly hair will spring shorter than straight hair.
Please make sure you have measured your hair in INCHES (not cm).
Contact me if you require further assistance with measuring.
My Hair Wraps are sold in length brackets or 10-11 inches, 12-13 inches etc. That does not take into account the length of the tassel.
The thickness of each Wrap can vary ever so slightly, but in general, they a little thinner than a pencil.
Choose LOOP or WEFT CLIP
Recommended - LOOP - with a small loop at the top, so they attach easily into a small hair-plait. You will receive detailed instructions and braiding bands to put your hair wrap in your hair. I have also recorded a YouTube video that shows you how to easily attach the wraps - the YouTube link can be found on my website (Hairwraps.co.uk) and it is also supplied when you purchase a wrap.
WEFT CLIP - This method is not as secure as attaching with the loop, but some people do prefer it. If you would rather have your hairwrap attached to a Weft-Clip, please choose this from the drop down menu. Weft clips snap open and shut, so are a really easy way to attach the wrap to your hair.
Please be aware the colour of your wrap may look different to what is displayed on your monitor, as devices display colours differently.
Colours of beads may vary, depending on what I have in stock, but I match as precisely as possible.
Plastic beads can be washed with the hair, but metal beads may tarnish, wooden beads may fade, and the glass beads that have a ‘mottled’ finish may deteriorate over time. Therefore, I recommend you remove wraps with these beads prior to washing.
If you would like to alter the beads from the image shown, please leave a note when you checkout.
The beads I stock are:
Wooden beads (coloured, natural & dark wood); Glass beads; Tibetan silver beads; Plastic Hearts, Stars, Flowers, Butterflies, and Skulls.
An unwashed Hairwrap will last for years, a regularly washed Hair Wrap will last for months. Therefore, for maximum lifespan, please remove before washing hair.
Plastic beads can be washed with the hair, but metal, wooden and mottled-glass beads may deteriorate over time. Therefore, I recommend you remove wraps with these beads prior to washing.
Please do not shower, swim, sleep or be active with your Feathers or charms attached to your Hair Wrap.
Hair Wraps without charms can be tied back with a LOOSE hair band when being active.
When not in use, please make sure your hair wrap is thouroughly dry before storage and store in a breathable bag to allow air circulation
A good re-usable hair wrap (braid) will last for up to 6 months. In this time, it can be plaited into and out of the hair as many times as you like, or you can just leave it in the hair for up to 2 weeks at a time (as the hair grows, it will grow away from the top of the head, so will need repositioning every 2 weeks - more or less frequently if the hair grows faster/slower)
They are really simple to remove - just un-plait the hair they are attached to, and slide off.
All of my wraps come attractively packaged in individual cellophane bags, with braiding bands, care instructions and a link to my YouTube channel where I have recorded a video to show you the easiest way to attach the Hair Wrap.
Hair Wraps and Hair wraps with sturdy charms are sent in cellophane bags, as above.
Hair Wraps with FEATHERED Charms (or Feathered Charms ordered on their own) - Wraps are separated from the feathered charm, and the feathered charm is wrapped in tissue paper, then in a bubble wrap pouch, for protection. Feathered charms have their own care instructions.
Charms ordered on their own - Charms are wrapped in bubble wrap, then placed in small bags.
All orders are then sent in waterproof plastic mailing bags.
I do my best to recreate the original picture but you won't receive the exact same wrap or charm as in the photograph.
The nature of hand-made products is that there will always be tiny variations, although I strive to keep these to an absolute minimum.
I aim to copy the pattern exactly of the Hair Wrap photographed, and I keep a detailed inventory of the DMC colour numbers I have used in each and every Hair Wrap, so I can make the wrap as precisely as possible.
Very occasionally, my embroidery cotton, or specific beads are out of stock. In this instance, I will message you first to check any colour or bead substitution is acceptable.
I try and match feathers as closely to the listing picture as possible also.
Anything I missed? Contact me with your question, and I'll be sure to include it in this section.
