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!

My next article will include information about making your own prom items and saving money. I'll include more details on the bobby pins you can make. 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...
