Create an updo with bobby pin art

It's nice to have lots of fun hair accessories to play with, but building a collection can cost a pretty penny. Don't let a tight budget squash your creativity. There are many ways to use clips, bobby pins and even photographs to make a hairstyle stand out.
Show off your love of family and friends by adding a few photographs to your updo. A small square hair clip looks just like a picture frame and can be modified to hold a sweet selfie. With a little ingenuity, you can also use bobby pins and spin pins to hold lightweight photos in place, too. There's no right or wrong when it comes to being fashionable, so follow your muse.
