Hair Net Deal

28 Jul

I listed a set of 3 hair nets / bun covers in my Etsy shop. This listing is designed to save you a bit of money! If I list a set, my fees are lower and therefore I am able to reduce the price per piece a bit.

This set includes one each of my three most common colors:  Black, Brown, and White. All three are made in the flower style. Go on over to my store to check it out!

I also have hair nets available in the traditional net style. They are the same size as the flower style and they have the same style elastic in the back. I can also make these in any of the other colors I use. I just don’t have them all made up right now. It doesn’t take long to make them. You can find these hair nets in my Etsy Shop.

Large Black and White Hairnets

28 Jun

I got the large black flower style hair net/bun cover listed in my Etsy shop yesterday. I was feeling kind of out-of-it so I didn’t get much listed this week yet. I got the large white flower hair net listed this morning. This is now all the colors in this style I have available. The others were the brown and light brown.

If you have long and or thick hair and need a hair net with plenty of room, these large nets would be just the thing!

Why I make Hairnets

22 Jun

I began making hairnets for myself. While I enjoy making pretty things such as doilies, coasters, ect, I have always had had interest in making useful things. To me, a hairnet is something useful that I can make for myself instead of buying them. The real bargain is that the homemade ones last way longer, too!
After I began making them for myself, I thought others could be using these too. When I first started selling them, I had no idea there is such a market for bun covers.
I believe in the literal translation of the Bible in 1 Corinthians 11 where it teaches that Christian women should cover their hair with a veiling. I do not believe and do not promote that the bun cover/hairnets that I make should take the place of the veiling. They only cover part of the hair, and do not provide an adequate covering of the hair. The hair net is to keep the hair in place so that a veiling can be worn neatly over it. If the bun cover is someone’s first step towards wearing a veiling, I do not condemn you in that, but I do pray that you will continue to learn and grow to an understanding of wearing the headship veiling.
I know that many people use bun covers for a variety of reasons, some of which, I would not encourage. I do hope to be a witness to my customers of the principles taught in God’s word.
Wearing a veiling has long been a practice of the Mennonite and Amish people and is often associated with them. That is one reason why I put the words Amish & Mennonite in the title of my listings. I hope that draws the attention of those honestly seeking a method of Biblically covering their hair.

 

Best Seller

4 Jun

My most popular items are the hair nets/ bun covers. Right now my best seller is the black flower style.

Flower Style Black Hair Net / Bun Cover

I crochet these hair nets by hand using black size 10 cotton crochet thread.  The outside round has an elastic pony tail holder crocheted into. This helps the hair net to form around the bun.  These hair nets will fit most average small to medium size buns.  If you have lots of thick hair you will probably need a bigger size.  If the hair net is a little too big, it can be tucked under with hair pins. When laying flat these nets are about 3 ½” across. I try to make them all the same size, but they do vary a tiny bit sometimes.

I use a homemade hair net every day and I love it! I can use one for months and it doesn’t wear out nearly as quick as normal hair nets. And I use lots of hair pins! 

It is easy to care for your hair net.  I recommend washing by hand in cold water to minimize shrinking. You can throw them in the washing machine, but they don’t come out very nice. You may use a mild detergent on them. Air dry and that’s all that’s to it!

The hair nets are useful for any occasion and work perfectly for Amish and Mennonite hair styles. They fit most types of hair buns even though the nets are made round.  I use them on all kinds of buns including flip-style buns.
