I've had a lot of questions about how to wear snoods. Even at craft shows, ladies ask "How do you put this thing on?!" So today I'll show you how to put them on and how to fill them out if your hair is shorter.
I wear snoods constantly! They're beautiful for fancy events and very practical for housework days or gardening. They keep hair out of the way without pulling it all into a tight ponytail and I love how a handmade snood really stays put. I bought some cheap slinky snoods for $3 each when I first got into vintage and they're fine to start with but they really don't compare to a hand crochet or knit snood.
No pin curls or hot rollers are needed when you have a quick hair fix like this!

To put a snood on, I usually style the front of my hair first, but you definitely don't have to. If I'm in a rush, I'll throw a snood on and pull out a little hair in the front and roll or pin it on my way out the door. I put my hands inside the snood and pull the elastic out. Then, pull it over the top of my head, with my thumbs holding it open:
Now my big trick- I flip my fingers through the holes in the snood
and scoop my hair into the net
Pull all of the hair through
stick your fingers through the holes and move your hair around, as needed, evening it out.
If your hair is too short or thin to fill a snood out, you can add a rat to match your hair color. Just stick it under your hair so it doesn't show through.
You can also grab the top of the snood and pin the excess up, which can be left as-is or covered with a bow or hair flower.
