Simple bobby pins can be transformed into unique hair decor by arranging them into simple patterns. This easy trick can transform a blah hair day into a rad accessorized 'do that's sure to get attention. These shapes work well for half-up hairstyles as I've demonstrated in this post but you can also use them to pull back one side in lieu of a barrette. I've come up with a few different looks to inspire you but feel free to design your own. Also, you can use any old bobby pins or splurge on some fun colored ones like these for contrast. This casual cool styling idea is all about having fun.
