Vinegar Hill Elastic

Details

The spice shades of saffron, amber, and bone in this make us reach for our passports. For muggy nights and steamy summer brunches, when wearing your hair down just isn’t an option, the Vinegar Hill Elastic is our go-to. Top knot looking a little deflated? Put a leaf on it.

  • scissors
  • safety pin or toothpick

Materials

  • round spice-colored elastic
  • carved leaf button
  • round horn beads
