Big Hair Friday – Wear jewellery in your hair

Oh how I love a top knot. I can’t stop wearing one.

I’ve played around with scarves in my hair, headbands and flowers in my hair, but how about beads?

I was playing around with a couple of my favourite necklaces and found a whole new set of hair accessories in my own wardrobe. These two pieces are from Mushu and Elk, but any of your favourite pieces can be transformed into a hair accessory.

I’ve secured these by winding them around my top knot and putting a bobby pin through the clasp to keep them in place.

Have you ever worn jewellery in your hair? Go big and wear something new in your hair this weekend.

i like wearing flower brooches as accessories. I have made excess beads into hair accessories using beading wire & bobby pins–to make beaded flowers or chains. Really like the red beads in the first pic, its a good way to dress up a top knot or a good way to wear beads when u have too much going on to wear a necklace.

ooh, pretty! wish my hair was long enough to put up like that (or put up at all). its been quite awhile since I’ve worn jewelry in my hair, tho this just may inspire me to wear some of my broaches or pendants as hair clips. I have this really pretty sparkling bracelet that was always too big to be comfortable wearing on my wrist and too small to be an anklet so one day I started wearing it wrapped around my messy bun and it was soooooo cute, really dressed it up when I wanted to look a little bit on the fancy side.
