A quick and easy way to add an accent to your hair... with no glue to fuss with!
I wanted a little sparkle in my hair today... and when I cleaned out my purse I found a bobby pin and a shank button and found the perfect solution!

And even better, I was at work and could still put it together.

NO GLUE (hot or otherwise) required! And if I need the plain bobby pin in the future... I can just take off the button. Or swap buttons... the possibilities are endless!

It is probably best to stick into a bun (or buns if you're going with an anime/Princess Leia look) or into french braids where there's a place for the button to "settle" or "float" on and not flop around.
