THERE is nothing worse than putting on a pair of tights and finding a snag or tear, especially after you have taken the time to put a great outfit together.
Sometimes no matter how hard you try, tights seem to rip but it's even worse if you have long nails.
A fashion fan has shared her easy method for putting on tights so they will never tear again.
Hannah Harmelin learnt her method and she shared it in a video online.
She said: “Growing up my mum always had the best fashion hacks and this one she taught me staying with me forever
She continued: “You know when you're wearing tights and you're pulling them up and they get a run in them. That is the worst feeling ever.”

Hannah said: “Your tights are ruined and now you have holes in your tights from your nails or from pulling them up and stretching them out.”
She said: “Instead of grabbing your tights and pulling them with your nails, here is what you're gonna do.”
Hannah says the secret is using wet hands and to avoid using your nails.
She said: “Wet your hands in the sink, get the palms of your hands wet. With your wet hands you take them [the tights] and you pull them up your leg.”
