Here’s my step to step guide to making your usual hair grips a little bit fancier. I have used pearl beads but you can use any type, and will add a touch of glam to your up do.
1. What you need: A pack of hair grips and some pretty beads. Simple! You will need to make sure that the bead hole is big enough to fit the grip through.
2. Thread the bead onto the grip, all the bead holes will be different sizes so trial and error if the first one doesn’t fit. The bead might need some help over the bumps, just give it a wiggle!
3. Stretch the grip out once it reaches the middle so the bead is central.
4. Position the grip back into place and viola, a fancy new hair pin!
I tried mine out in a messy french plait (below).
