Rings don’t require a pattern—place them randomly for a fun take on the style.
Keep it neat to show off all your charms.
Experiment with multiple sized rings to alter the focus of your style—think, super chic optical illusion.

This style is pretty much a corset for your hair—a line of jewels seals the deal.

Use your rings to create curls; this works as a perfect preface to beach waves.
Want to standout during wedding season? It’s this easy. Subtle rings are the perfect adornments for any up-do.
One and Done
