Do, but Don't: Hair Accessories

Do!  Embellish your hair!  Some of your favorite fashion retailers are flooded with cute headbands, barrettes, and flowers. Breathing new life into your fall-back hairstyle (mines is an afro puff) can be a snap by adding a twist of personal style.

but Don't! Go Cheap! And I don't mean inexpensive, I mean tacky.  Make sure you purchase items that are well made and look as authentic as possible.  It doesn't have to be expensive, but it should look expensive.  For example...

Don't sell yourself short and limit your purchases to retailers. Call on the crafter in you and create your own pieces.  I've rummaged through many craft stores looking for the perfect silk flowers and then hot gluing them to hair combs or barrettes. So have fun with it and do it BIG!
