Put glue on your Bobby pin and place your nailheads on your Bobbi pin.

step 3
Bobby pin with rhinestones.

Put glue on your Bobby pin and set your rhinestones on your Bobbi pin.

You can either line them up along the Bobby pin or just keep it simple and put just one at the end.

If you are using more than one rhinestone, be sure to put them right next to one another.

As the weather heats up, no matter what the length of your hair, you’ll probably want to pin at least some part of your hair up. These simple DIY Bobby Pins make it easy to add sparkle and interest to your ’do’.

You can really add most anything you like to your Bobby pins to make a great statement. It’s the perfect way to use up those couple of inches of leftover chain or random nailheads. Get creative and have fun with them and they would make great gifts too!

If you remember last week I posted about the special event at Vidal Sassoon. They were celebrating the 50 year anniversary of their iconic bob hairstyle. So I decided to go a little more asymmetrical than usual, what do you think? Styling my hair only takes half the time now! LOL The products they sent me from their Pro Series line work really well too! I’ve tried everything I showed here and I’m really happy with how well the mousse works. I helps to hold my curls in place and the finishing spray and hairspray hold really well too. The prices are very reasonable, which is great for those of us who spend most of our money on craft supplies!

Remember there’s still time to enter your ‘selfie’ for a chance to win $1000! You have until June 18th!
