Clips, combs, tiebacks, and headbands can not only keep your hair out of the way, but they can also show off your personality and add those perfect finishing touches to a great outfit. Designer hairpieces are expensive and low-budget accessories are often boring. However, with just a little effort you can turn a boring hair accessory into an eye-catching accent.
New accessories can also be created from everyday items: dress up chopsticks to make hair sticks, weave feathers into your hair to create colorful extensions, or make a hair wrap with embroidery floss.
