DIY Hanging Chains Headband | Bohemian Coachella Hair

hanging chains headband -  coachella style

While browsing Topshop last week, I came across this fun hanging chains headband and thought with Coachella right around the corner, an easy DIY for something similar would be fun. I used an old plastic zig zag stretchy comb headband I’ve had for years because it was the most logical choice to hang chains from but you can use an elastic band in a similar way. The chains disappear a little in my blonde hair but they would stand out really pretty agains brunette locks {it would also look great on a shorter cut as well}. If you’re super crafty, add a feather or bead/charm to the bottom of a few chains.

What You’ll Need…

* Circular headband
* Chains: fine, thick, gold, silver, rose gold… use a variety of colors and sizes or all the same… choose chains that are lighter in weight.
* Jump rings {for small chains only}
* Beading pliers

* Prepare your chains. I used about 30-35 chains, longest down the middle/back, tapering up around the sides. It’s up to you how long or short you’d like them to hang.

* Using the extra loose chain links or jump rings for small chains, attach one chain to each section of your plastic headband. I began at the ends with the longest chains and worked my way up knowing that I would clasp this at the back/base of my head where my hair was the longest.

* Working from the ends up, I stopped just about at my temples or above my ears. You may choose to use as many or as few chains as you like. The Topshop version goes all the way around, including short bangs.
