When my alarm clock goes off in the morning I think to myself, albeit a tad incoherently, “Boooooooooo! I wanna keep sleeping!!!”
So I hit the snooze button.
About 5 minutes later the alarm clock goes off again. It’s evil intentions of bursting me from my delightful slumber entirely apparent. So I take revenge on the wicked device by hitting the snooze button, AGAIN. AND AGAIN. Take THAT stupid alarm clock!!!
Oh, crap. I have to be leave for work in 30 minutes.
I wish I could say that the above routine is not a common occurrence, but the truth is, it happens just about EVERY FREAKING DAY. I have to take what I time I have left to get dressed, put my face on, and quickly run a brush through my hair. Fiddling with a curling iron, straightener, or crimper? Entirely out of the question. There just isn’t enough time.
However, I still want to look professional and do SOMETHING with my hair before I step out the door. My quick, easy solution is to stick a barrette in it. By simply grabbing a couple of pieces of hair and combining them with a hair clip, I can achieve instant styling gratification. Best of all, the procedure takes less than a minute. I’m off to work looking fabulously, and no one can tell how quickly I had to rush to be there on time.
There’s actually quite a few options for hair styles with barrettes. Here’s just one of the cool tutorials I’ve found on YouTube:
If your looking for some unique barrettes to add to your collection (or want to start a collection) I’ve been adding quite a few new ones to my Etsy Shop:
