Try the Trend: Hair Pins

The Details

Top {wearing size small} |

I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to a Monday as much as this one! I was a bit more absent from the blog last week and if you follow my Instagram you may have seen why. Maxi got a pretty nasty virus that ended her up in our children’s hospital with a 106 fever. Our cars had gotten broken into the night before- some people were going through our neighborhood. Then, Friday, while I’m at home with Maxi at 9 a.m. they tried to come back for more and break in our house. Peaches scared them off and my alarm alerted me it was happening, but my nerves were FRIED. Everything is fine and we are fine, but I’ve never craved a new week so much in my life. I thought I was handling things pretty well {in comparison to how I assumed I’d react} and then yesterday I was filled with such anxiety all day long, I knew my body was just processing all the emotions and exhaustion.

But Maxi’s personality is back and we are all safe, so for that, I’m so grateful! And while I don’t want to focus on last week too much {life happens!} I did want to explain why I wasn’t popping on the blog to chat about pearl hair pins.

But this blog post has already been written, so let’s get to it, deal?!

I’m one hair pin away from a Dorit moment and I’m not mad about it. Remember butterfly clips? Nothing made me happier in life than a trip to Claire’s to buy glitter-adorned butterfly clips. I mean that REALLY told you that your mom loved you. Ha! The goal each morning before school was to put as many as I could possibly put in my hair and ignore the headache later. My mother had yet to lovingly assure me that sometimes less is more. While I haven’t seen butterfly clips in quite some time pearl clips and sassy hair pins are the newest trend on the radar. Pearl clips have been going strong for about a year, but now we are seeing rhinestone pins in shapes, letters, and even phrases. I bought a few to try and while I don’t wear all 4 at once, this blog post needed a Dorit moment. 😉

My favorite way to wear these pins is to part your hair a tiny bit over to the side- more than you would if you part down the middle as I do. Now, this isn’t a regular side part, just the tiniest whisper of a side part. Then, take a pin or two, and pin the shorter side down. Next, I take some texturizing spray and spray upwards from the bottom to give the ends of my hair extra fullness. You can also do this with a ponytail and get the same effect!

Try this for your next girls’ night out and let me know what you think. Maybe it’s the new grown-up version of butterfly clips and if so, I’m feeling nostalgic.
