Accessorize and Style Your ‘Do at DI

Growing, maintaining, and styling a healthy head of hair can cost you. At Deseret Industries, we have ways to save on everything in your life. Whether you’re into upcycling or just like to use things as they are, here are some items from DI you can use on your hair.

DI Hair Items

You can get some hair essentials for less at DI. Here are some ideas:

1. Hair tools.

On our shelves, you can often find blow-dryers, straighteners, curling irons, and hot rollers to tame your locks.

2. Hats

Find a beanie for winter or a cute baseball cap to style with a ponytail. Hats are a great way to mix up your look—not to mention a great solution for a bad hair day!

Upcycled Hair Accessories

In addition to hair tools and hats, here are a few items you can upcycle and use for your mane. The best part about upcycling is that the items you create will be unique and customized to you!

3. Felt hair clips

4. Silk flower hair clips

If felting and making your own flowers out of wool isn’t your style, you can use other items from DI to dress up hair clips. You can almost always find silk flower arrangements on the shelves at Deseret Industries. Cut apart floral picks, and hot-glue the blossoms to hair clips. And don’t stop there—you can also customize hair clips with cute buttons from clothing items, beads from jewelry, and more.

5. T-shirt fabric headbands

Thrifting clothes and using the fabric to upcycle into other items is one of our favorite DIY secrets. Buy knit shirts or other clothing and make them into cute headbands. You can glue the fabric to plastic headbands or braid fabric strips and sew them to elastic bands.

6. Hair accessory storage

Are your bathroom counters scattered with hair bows, hair clips, and headbands? Make your own cute hair bow board. Buy a wooden board from DI, and style it up using chalkboard paint, acrylic paint, or whatever suits your fancy! Hang ribbons from the bottom, and attach your hair bows and clips!
