Clearly haven’t gotten over my obsession with the CIRCLE BARRETTE. I’ve been finding other ways to use it and this might be my current fave. It doesn’t hurt that this is the easiest style in the world! You just need two of the clips and some waves in your hair…

Here we wrap curled (not using the clamp) with a 1″ Hot Tools Spring Iron.

Next up, add some texture with a soft beach wave spray like THIS!

Pretty, textured waves will help the clip stay in place and prevent sliding.

Clip the hair half up. I love these CIRCLE BARRETTES because you can use them any way you want! You could clip this in and stop here if you wanted.

Or you could pull some hair through the circle and stop here! This is a cute half up style just AS IS, right?? But let’s keep going.

Add the second clip. Use as much hair as you feel fits comfortably into the barrette. Snug but not stuffed. These clips are pretty strong, if you ask me. Karleigh has a ton of hair but they don’t pop open easily like some others tend to! Don’t be afraid that they’re going to do that. And also don’t feel like you need to use all the hair. We left a bottom section of Karleigh’s hair down underneath. If you look closely you can see that we didn’t pick it all up.

Pull the second section through your circle clip! Use a little hairspray, wave spray, texture spray, whatever! Or even it a little more wave with your curling iron. Finished look is up top!

 

What do you guys think of the CIRCLE BARRETTE!? Have you tried using this yet? So good for a 5 minute hairstyle (not including wave time, obv)! It’s such a great alternative to a braid or a topknot. It’s awesome that these clips are $12. I think that’s very affordable and I love how many different ways you can use it!
