“Crystal Headband & Side Hair Comb” Downloadable PDF Beading Tutorial #27553

A grandmother recently reached out to us and asked for a tutorial for a beaded side hair comb that she could make for her granddaughters for Christmas. She added that it must have some sparkle, “because they love that bling!” We loved her suggestion, and the idea of incorporating crystals so it really “pops”. We also thought it would be fun if we could make the design work with headbands, for girls who prefer those. Our criteria was that the design; needed to be fairly quick and simple to stitch up (because, as it turns out, making these things are like eating potato chips – you can’t have just one!), didn’t require any glue (because gluing crystals is a crime : ), and would work with common brands of hair accessories found at most box stores (see “recommended materials” for the only requirement). What we ended up with is crystal couture that will thrill young and old alike! Whether made up as a solid (using just one color crystal and seed bead) or as a bead mix (using up to four colors of crystals and seed beads for more variety and a slightly more mature look), these beadazzled hair accessories are fun and easy to make and add the perfect touch of sparkle to whatever you wear!

This easy to follow tutorial, which includes a detailed materials page, color information, over 50 high-resolution full-color photos and easy to follow step-by-step directions, will teach beaders of all skill levels, including absolute beginners, how to whip up a bunch in all your favorite colors – either for yourself, or your lucky recipient(s). There won’t be any “bad hair days” with these beauties. Here’s to looking lovely and beading happy!
