DIY: HAIR CHAIN - CHEAP AS CHIPS HAIR ACCESSORY

photo from - FASHION TOAST

I've always been a bit of a hair-fanatic, and that obsession stretched as far as eccentric hair accessories. Forget pretty bows and girly ribbons, I'm talking chains of feathers and even putting my jewellery in my hair - despite the occasionnel odd look from a passer-by. These types of accessories are perfect for when your hair is looking as limp and lifeless (as Cheryl would tell you!) as your outfit and you need something easy and cheap to suddenly and successfully spruce things up a bit. Hence why, I've decided to share with you one of my go-to jewellery statements that isn't sitting on my neck, wrist or finger but proudly draped across my head - the hair chain.

YOU'LL BE NEEDING:
+2x bobby pins
+2 (or more) x necklace chains (with clip fastening de-tatched)




First up, you need to remove the rounded rubber ends of the bobby-pins (show on the right pin in this picture) so as to allow to necklace chain to pass over the pin. If you have a chain with big enough links, then this step can obviously be missed out. 






Pass the amount of chains you've chosen to use over one bobby pin








Then, taking the other end of each chain, pass them over the other bobby pin, like so. Pin into place on your old head and your good to go!

The finished, subtle yet very different, hair chain!
