Nothing elevates a quick updo like a pretty hair accessory! With holiday party season quickly approaching, we wanted to make somethin’ a little special to accessorize with — plus, we’ve been dying to incorporate some smaller crystals into a wearable piece! Not only is this DIY super easy, but it also makes for a great last-minute gift. I love how the citrine, amethyst, and quartz hair comb looks in Joanna’s messy bun!
Start by arranging your crystals, playing with the different sides until you’re happy with the layout.
Next, apply a small dab of super glue to your plastic hair comb, apply your crystal, and hold in place for 30 seconds. Continue building your hair comb by applying glue and holding each crystal in place.
Allow to cure for at least a day before showing off your new handmade accessory.
For a simplified version, try making a smaller hair comb that features one statement crystal. Begin by measuring the crystal and decide how much shorter you want to make the hair comb. Then use a pair of heavy duty cutting pliers and snip off one end of the hair comb. Glue in place and accessorize!
Once your hair comb cures for 24 hours, it will be your go-to for fancy updos and casual hair styles alike.
To make a a crystal hairpin, start by finding a small enough crystal to fit on your bobby pin and glue in place. If using more than one crystal, apply the super glue to both the bobby pin and the side of the other crystal for extra support.
A set of crystal hairpins would also be a lovely handmade gift for friends! These fit perfectly into a small jewelry box and are can be thoughtfully customized to match the recipient’s taste.
I used the fluorite and quartz hair pin to tuck back my hair and add a pop of color and subtle shine.
The simple citrine smaller hair comb matched our photographer’s hair perfectly!
