As with most things in life, we know a little creativity goes a long way. And when it comes to hair accessories, it's not just what you use, but how you use it. With this in mind, we enlisted the help of S.F. beauty pro Katie Nash to show us four fresh ways to jazz up your tresses with everything from tried-and-true hair trimmings to an unexpected bedroom item.
We're talking updated takes on essentials like bobby pins and sock buns, a totally modern 'do that features the throwback '80s banana clip (it's ah-mazing!), and a super-sexy style revolving around an edgy embellishment you may even have left over from Halloween. (Hint: The accessory may be naughty, but the results are oh-so-nice nice). So, read on and get ready to raid your hair drawer — it's time to get a little hot headed … and extra creative.
