I haven’t worn a proper barrette since I was a little girl, but this Spring I started seeing the reappearance of pretty detailed barrettes all over the place and I love how they are looking in flowy hair or to make a simple bun seem not so simple. I especially love that they serve a purpose besides looking pretty; capturing wayward hairs. My hair get so many fly aways and since I’ve been growing it out, it often gets in my face and annoys me. But a pretty barrette may be just what I need to tame the mane while I’m working or even just trying to stay cool. I have the supplies to attempt to make my own sweet barrette, and if it goes well, the DIY will be up on the blog next week. Wish me luck!
