DIY Beauty Treatments and Fashion Fixes
Replace a Worn-Down Heel TipTime: 5 minutes.
What you need: Pliers, heel-tip replacements ($5 a pair, newheeltips.com), and a hammer.
How-to: This works best when you have at least two millimeters of plastic remaining on the heel. Use the pliers to remove the old tip from the heel. Choose a tip that fits the shape of the heel (print the type chart from newheeltips.com) and insert it into the now vacant hole. Hammer the tip into the heel (or carefully bang it against a hard surface) to make sure it’s secure. Repeat for the other shoe. Strut your stuff.
Tip: Use a left-to-right twisting motion to remove the old tip rather than pulling it out. Cover the hammer and pliers with masking tape to avoid damaging the heel.
A pro charges: $12
DIY cost: $5 for heel tips
