Scarves and Headscarves

Hair Ties to the Rescue
We love those rolled-up sleeves, it looks cool, but when some movement is included, this is where it all starts to go downhill.

One roll of such tape will be ready to help whenever you want to adjust the length of some clothing pieces. Also, it is that perfect helper when you need to keep something in one place, such as keeping your dress from sliding off your shoulder. To avoid this, simply stick your dress to your bra straps, and voila, no more dress acting wild. There is no need to use scissors for shortening your pants or shirts. This means that there will be no permanent damage and no crooked lines. Now you can experiment all that you want, and nothing will be irreversible!
Cuffs For the Funs
