The holidays are coming and I am so excited!  In getting ready for all the fun holiday gatherings I am planning out outfits, accessories, and getting my hair holiday ready.  Today I’m going to share with you all how I’m getting my hair ready for Christmas parties and pictures as well as a super simple tutorial for how to make your own headband that sparkles, which I think is the perfect accessory for this time of year.

I’m in my mid-thirties and I’m starting to get more grays but I’m not ready for that quite yet so I picked up a box of Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color in Delicate Praline on a recent trip to Walmart.  hair dyedye on shelf

Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color’s K-BOND PLEX™ is salon inspired anti-breakage technology that repairs the inner hair structure for strong and healthy looking hair.  how to make your own headbandI love that with Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color I can get professional quality hair color at home that’s super easy to use and gives me fantastic color results and 100% gray coverage.  The included pre-treatment gives even color result from root to tip by conditioning the hair before coloring.

And here’s my hair after coloring:hair after hair after hair from front

I know, it’s a subtle difference in color because I chose a shade very close to my own, but I love the gray coverage and how shiny and silky my hair is!hair

To kick things up another notch for special occasions I made a sparkly headband and here’s the super simple tutorial:how to make your own headband

How to Make Your Own Headband


  • glitter elastic
  • sewing machine, needle and thread OR hand sewing needle and thread OR hot glue gun


Step 1: Cut your elastic to 19 inches.  You may want to make your headband a bit longer if you have a bigger head or really thick hair or make it shorter if your head is on the smaller side.sparkly elastic

Step 2: Overlap the ends of your elastic by 1/2 inch.  If sewing, sew this area down together.  If using the hot glue gun, then glue them together in this area that overlaps.sewing it together finsihed headband
