On (Needle) Point: Hair-Turned-Tapestry

One of the coolest, most out-of-the-box hair trends we’ve seen over the past couple of months has to be “hair tapestry,” which is exactly what it sounds like. You literally use a needle and thread — and sometimes a legit loom — to create your very own tapestry in your hair.

Sound crazy? Well, it’s definitely a little zany, but the results are so cool that you can’t help but want to try it out ASAP.

Photographs of hair tapestry have started popping up on social media feeds and across the blogosphere. Today we’re highlighting some downright hip hair tapestries posted by various Instagram users, and, as a bonus, we’ve (weave?) also included a DIY tutorial from the Dirty Looks blog. The picture tutorial from the blog is located above and the video tutorial is at the bottom of this post.
