8. Half Up Space Buns With Hair Clips
Put your clips just above or below your buns to make your ‘do more exciting! To keep your hairstyle from looking over-the-top, choose smaller hair clips or those with minimalist designs to complement your buns.
9. Mix of Pearl Clips
Gunning for a more elegant look? You can do that with hair clips, too! Clips that are decorated with pearl studs make for great hair accessories for special occasions. You can place just one clip on your hair or wear a few to add more oomph to your look.
10. Bob with Hair Clips
A symmetrical look also goes with a bob, especially if you have blunt bangs. Just place the hair clips near your ears so they won’t compete with your fringe, and all elements on your hair are given equal attention. Don’t forget to blow dry your bangs down and straight so they keep to their shape.
11. Floral Hair Accessories

13. One-Sided Clip Short Hairstyle
You don’t always have to wear hair clips in pairs. A one-sided barrette makes for a simple romantic short hairstyle, especially when you add some waves or texture to your hair. It’s also a quick and easy way to look extra pretty on a regular day, even if you’re just wearing a shirt-and-jeans combo.

24. Low Pinned Wavy Hair
Give your hair some beautiful loose waves and put your hair accessory just right above your ears. Let the other side of your hair fall to your face for a sense of mystery. Of course, you can also wear this hairstyle to a date or a lazy afternoon at the park.
25. Half Updo with Studded Barrette
Wavy hair is nice to flaunt and wear in a low ‘do. But if you don’t like the feeling of your hair falling all over your face, then, this half updo is the best hairstyle for you. This style looks really cute and feminine because only the hair on your crown is gathered into a half updo, making it look unique yet stylish.
There are actually no hard and fast rules when it comes to wearing these accessories. Whatever works for you is fine, so go ahead and mix and match your favorite pins, clips, and barrettes. Have fun!
