Beautiful and Simple Crochet Hair Accessories

These are some beautiful and simple crochet hair accessories i have made for my daughter. Get inspired to make some too.

I’ve written about the “hairy situation” at the Ks before: Little Mango has a lot of hair, it is thick and unruly, and very long on top of that. There is no convincing her to let us cut it, after years of keeping her hair tightly cropped. These are some beautiful and simple crochet hair accessories I have made for my daughter.

We used to spend a pretty penny on hair accessories when we were city dwellers, but here I haven’t found any place that sells any I like, so we re-cover pins and I try to make as many of them as I can.  These are some crocheted hair accessories I’ve made.

These “furry” elastic bands are some of my favorite, and I borrow them on occasion. They are crocheted with a “furry” yarn I bought a long time ago in one of those “surprise boxes” I get from eBay from time to time.

The black and grey bands, have silver strands. They look very fancy and you can get a few of these out of a single ball of yarn. I just crochet around a piece of elastic band tied in the ends.

The good thing about these bands is how quickly they are made. The small grey ones took less than half an hour to be finished.

This is one of my favorites, and is several years old. I crocheted it with assorted leftover cotton yarn. I also crocheted small flowers in different colors that hang from crocheted cords.

This bun-cover for her ballet class was made with some shiny pink yarn from another surprise box, and the same white furry yarn as the band above. I really like the combination. And I made one with just furry yarn for her best friend, who has a smaller bun.

I passed an elastic band in the row where the white part meets the pink one, it doesn’t need hair pins to stay, as she has a pretty sizable bun with all that hair (I don’t trust kids with hair pins anyway).

I have a few more that I will post about on another occasion, and I am always making new hair-tamers for the little hairy monster.

I am always trying to find smart hair accessories that cut the time it takes us to get out of the door and on our way to school in the morning. Any ideas you want to pass on? And please don’t tell me “cut her hair when she’s sleeping”, it’s the only one Bo can think of.

    Thanks Maya!I think those were called scrunchies. At least in the 80s.

    Little Mango is gorgeous! So beautiful!I love the accessories you made especially the pink ballet-cap one!I haven't made any recently but the easiest and the fastest are the ones: you sew a pipe out of fabric, put and elastic in, sew the closure and you have a nice ruffly hair band. I think you know of what I am referring to.

    Loove your daughter's hair! Don't think of it as unruly, but as having character and self-determination. 🙂 At least that's what I tell myself about the mop on my head. ~ Sunny ~

    Oh, lovely EJ. I made one similar to this for my daughter's friend some time back but never remembered to post about. Yours is very cute, I think I'll try that for myself.Here's a clickable link to yours: EJ's braided hair band.
