- Foundation Chain: Start by creating a foundation chain that's the desired length of your hair band. Make sure to choose a chain length that's comfortable for you.
- First Row: Insert your hook into the second chain from your hook and pull up a loop. Continue to do this in each chain until you reach the end of your row.
- Return Pass: Once you've completed your first row, you'll need to work your return pass. Yarn over and pull through one loop on your hook. Then, yarn over again and pull through two loops on your hook. Continue to do this until you've reached the end of your row.
- Repeat: Continue to repeat steps two and three until your hair band is the desired width.
- Bind Off: Once your hair band is the desired width, it's time to bind off your work. Cut your yarn, leaving a long tail. Yarn over and pull through one loop on your hook. Then, yarn over and pull through both loops on your hook.
- Finishing: Once you've bound off your work, weave in any loose ends and trim your yarn.

Caring for Your Hair Band
To keep your Tunisian crochet chain hair band looking its best, make sure to hand wash it in cold water and lay it flat to dry. Avoid using hot water or placing your hair band
in the dryer, as this can damage the fibers and cause your hair band to lose its shape. With proper care, your hair band will be a stylish and functional accessory that you can wear for years to come.
