I love the boho hairstyles by Mara Hoffman which are made with Indian camel swags! 😀 And finally I made my own pompom hair accessory. Yay! I love it! In this tutorial I’ll show you how you can make your own and how to use the pompom hair accessory for a cute boho hairstyle.
- DIY pompoms and tassels
- hair elastic
- twisted cord that’s twice as long as your hair
- needle and scissor
- optional: beads and buttons
DIY Pompom Hair Accessory
Fold the twisted cord in half and loop it around the hair elastic. Tie the pompoms and tassels to the twisted cord with square knots. You can also add buttons and beads if you want. I used colorful plastic buttons and golden metal buttons, large ceramic beads and black and white striped seed beads.
Boho Braid Hairstyle With Pompom Hair Accessory
Put your hair into a ponytail.
Wrap some hair around the elastic and secure it with pins.
Now braid your hair.
Tug on the sides of the braid to make it bigger.
Wrap the pompom hair accessory around the braid in a criss-cross pattern.
When you’ve reached the end of the braid, secure the pompom hair accessory with an elastic or bobby pin, or tie an overhand knot.
The pompom hair accessory is perfect for summer and festivals!
If you want, you can also wrap the pompom braid around the head and secure it with bobby pins.
