When it comes to the latest trends and styles, you know that you can always count on Lionesse to bring you the scoop. That’s why today, we wanted to take a few minutes to talk about one of the hottest trends in hair: the tapestry style. This article will detail what it is, how it’s done, and where it got it’s beginnings.
What Is Tapestry Hair?
Tapestry hair is the process of weaving threads throughout the hair with special string, a loom, and a hook. The process looks very similar to basket or rug weaving, and is usually quick to complete. Various looks and styles can be completed by interweaving various thread colors and patterns, adorning the hair with styles to match any outfit or look. The look can last anywhere from one to four days, longer if you’re extra careful, and goes with nearly any outfit. To get the look at home, you can use a friendship bracelet making kit, as it contains all of the material you would need – save for the loom. There are video tutorials available online to help you get the look yourself. It may be more fun to do this with a friend, where she does your hair, and you do hers. This way, you don’t have to do it yourself on your own hair – and she could leave with a cool new style as well.
How Tapestry Hair Got its Start?
Tapestry hair was created by a company known as Bleach London, a company located in London, England for outdoor festivals. Many times, the look is completed at outdoor festivals in England in special tents that Bleach London has set up at the events. The look has quickly taken the beauty world by storm, and has made its way stateside in the past few weeks. Coachella, the premier music festival hosted in California, saw some of the first women in the United States wearing the style, and it has since exploded since pictures of the style have graced social media and the internet.
Why You Should Try It?
Unlike dyeing your hair or opting for potentially damaging extensions, this style won’t damage the hair and looks absolutely cutting edge, fabulous, and colorful. It is temporary, so if you love the look you can just re-create it – and if not, you don’t have to. You can pair it to any outfit you are planning on wearing that day, or incorporate colors that will work with any outfit such as black, white, or other neutral colors. It’s a great accessory that adds something to the hair without being expensive, and it’s even safe for kids and teens. Rather than focus on why you should try it, ask yourself, “Why shouldn’t I?”
