If you have no idea how to mix and match different hair clips, take cues from your outfit. Going monochrome? Wear different clips with the same color. In a colorful ensemble? Make your clips match these colors, too!

Editor’s tip: Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on the clips before putting them on to make sure they’ll stay in place all day long. Spritz hairspray again when done styling to seal your whole look.
