DIY ripped black skinny jeans

Here’s how I manage to do my own version of ripped jeans. Note that this is actually my first one so basically I didn’t know what are the necessary things to do, so I didn’t expect it to be perfect.

I got:

◽a pair of scissors (sharp one)

◽black skinny jeans ( I bought from UKAY-UKAY)

◽a spoon

What I did, I wore the tight jeans. Wearing it could give you a balance view to measure on where to rip the best part, since we have different likings to which part of the legs to show off. When identified, cut it from side to side or at any lenght you want. As to mine, I cut it althrough the front, at the knee part. I cut like 0.3 cm thick of the fabric and do the same with the other leg.

I added 2 more short cuts above the right knee rip to add more sassy style. You can add as much as you want if you wanted it more stylish. Just be careful, there should be no room for mistakes, every cut will never be undone.

After cutting, take it off. Scrape off the edges of the cut part using a spoon to produce  some tattered effect on the jeans.

And that’s it! In an instant, I got my DIY ripped black skinny jeans. So simple and it only costs me Php 115.

If you feel unsure of doing it correctly, better off try an old jeans or buy something from UKAY just as I did than trying directly on your signature pants. Practice makes perfect! Thanks for reading!

I got interested with the thing so I bought one. The Hairagami was actually a hair accessory where it could style your hair on different rolls. It is actually  2 plastic thing inside a fabric, attached. If you press and fold its every end, the plastic rolls towards the center.

Along with it is an instruction pad how to use it. The front suggests different styles you can make. And the back part shows the instructions how to do it.

That night, I tried to use it. I rolled it up like a bun, its a messy bun though…and let it as is ’till I woke up the next day. And to my surprise, I had gorgeous curls after I unpinned the Hairagami out of my head. Let me show you the random curls.

This thing isn’t actually for curling. But will definitely curl after long hours of using. Let me show you my few tries on styling with the Hairagami. It isn’t the best yet, but will definitely get the hang of it.

Thanks for reading! If you happen to find this thing on the market, try to grab one, you’ll definitely enjoy your hair styling with it. Chow!
