I've seen these online, for way more than they have to be. They're really easy to make, even though I think I look kinda stupid in mine. But hey... It was under $10USD to make these, and I still have enough foam to make another pair. (It was about thirty cents a sheet for the foam, ten cents each for the felt, and I paid way too much for the rexlace. You can get a 100 yard spool for maybe $3.50 and I paid nearly $5 for the seventy yards of rexlace.)
Hair falls are just like big, fancy, hair ties that cover your hair with something much cooler.
This is the finished product.(as with all the images on this page, click for bigger.)What you will need
Something to mount it on. This can be a hair tie, stretchy lace, elastic, whatever. I'm using a hair tie for this.
Craft foam. I used four sheets of nine inch by twelve inch foam that was 2mm thick, and two sheets of craft felt, also nine by twelve. Felt will not be as bouncy as the foam will be. If you don't use felt, then use more foam in place of that. I used pink and black foam and yellow and purple sparkle felt.
Rexlace (it's the stuff that kids use to make those braided lanyard things.) or yarn, or some sort of string like thing to attach the foam to the mounts.
Your choice of beverage. I chose Rockstar Energy, but anything with caffeine will do.Optional stuff
Whatever else you want.Step one-
Cut the foam and the felt to whatever length and width you want. Out of four sheets of the foam, I got about sixty strips, and twenty strips of the felt.Step two-
Tie your mounting up. If you're using stretch lace, stretch it across a chair or something. If you're using a hair tie like I am... take off your shoes and socks, and put your feet up on another chair. If your feet smell funny, go take a shower or something to get rid of the smell, because your falls will be near your feet for a while, and no one wants falls that smell like feet. Take the hair elastic (make sure it's a strong one, as it will be stretched out a lot.) and loop it over your big toes.
(eew my feet look ugly.)Step three-
Cut a small
hole in the strip and thread a piece of rexlace through it. I kept the length long on it, but you can keep it as short or as long as you wish. The reason why the hole has to be small is because if it is too large, it can tear the foam easier, and no one wants their falls to randomly rip out. A hole punch is the easiest thing to use.
No pics for this step.
Take the rexlace and foam and tie it on to the mounting. It will look like what the picture does.
After a few more strips have been added (can of Rockstar added for size comparison)Step five-
Repeat steps three and four until desired volume is achieved.Step six-
repeat steps 1-5 for second fall. At this point, you can add whatever else you want. I used pipe cleaners and pony beads in neon colors, and a few pompoms in it.
To put these up, I put my hair in pigtails, then in buns. I then took the fall and used my bun as a base, and twisted it around once so that the fall fell over my buns and covered them up. If that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, then just go to http://ikickshins.net/instructions.html
and follow those instructions.
