Cheap Hair Accessories!
Hello fashion divas! Today, as I promised, we'll talk about cheap hair
accessories! This tiny detail is overlooked by too many girls. Adding
cheap, simple to find hair accessories complete your perfect prom outfit.
What should you look for? Rhinestones on bobby pins look great and
really dressy. But there are thousands of other options. Many stores have
racks and racks of little do-dads attached to a bobby pin. You buy them by
the pack -- most packs have 5-10 bobby pins for about $5-25. The secret to
making these hair things part of your do? Stick the body of the bobby pin
into your hair and only allow the end decoration to show. Too many girls
wear these bobby pins as barrettes -- a definite fashion faux pas! Barrettes
are used to hold the hair up and off from the face. Bobby pins are used to
accessorize the hair by adding small sparkle or shine to the hair.
Where do you find these little completers? Check out stores like Claires
and Afterthoughts, two cheap jewelry chains. You can also check out major
department stores. (look in their jewelry section)
If you have more time till your prom, try making your own! Buy some wire
and beads, and get cracking!

I'll also tell you how to make tiaras, necklaces, bracelets, beaded gloves,
and a shawl. All of these items can be made for under $10 -- some are as
cheap as $5. So check back here soon for more info! Until then...
