Hair pins, Kirby grips or bobby pins whatever you know them by you probably have them at the bottom of your handbag or on the side of your desk discarded until you need to secure your hair again. Its amazing how a box pull can dwindle down to a few near forgotten grips. But its time they took more centre stage to a hair style rather than foundations to one. Three neat slipped hair pins can give a vintage look in seconds. Not only are hair grips a key part of securing your favourite hairstyle but they are also an accessories that should be on show.
Do you remember the last time you did your hair with bobby pins? Hoping that no one could see those “invisible” hair pins. Those days are long gone the brighter and more colourful the better. In writing this post I tried to find some brightly coloured hair pins and failed. So why not get your DIY on and paint your own.
The image above shows the hairstyle from Cacharel A/W ‘12 and is a reminder that if your clothes haven’t made centre stage yet, start with the hair. The rest will surely follow.
