MUST HAVE: DIY No Crease Clips
If you’re as hair obsessed as we are, you’ve probably come to recognize our reliance on no-crease clips, usually seen in backstage photos at fashion week every year. These clips are great for holding a set style into place without leaving a mark or crease.
The problem I’ve come across as a hairstylist is that we all run to the same reliable sources to stock up on these clips, and when you’re working with a team, there’s no telling whose clips are whose. So this season, I decided to create my own. And guess what? Not only are they unique and distinctive, but easy to track down before the catwalk!
CREATE YOUR OWN
STEP 1: Buy flat pin curl clips or duck bill clips from your local beauty supply store – Sally’s or Ricky’s, etc. You can even find at a local arts & crafts store .
STEP 2: Pick a flat and sturdy surface to attach your pins to (I chose Mane Addicts stickers) and cut into shapes accordingly. You can use anything! Get creative!
STEP 3: Purchase design tape to attach the two together;metallic, polka dot, chevron… so many options! Or peel off the back of the sticker to attach.
These are easy to make in the comfort of your own home without spending a fortune or venturing off to a professional beauty supply.
