You can never have too much bling.

Hair jewelry comes in many different forms. We’ve seen them as jeweled bobby pins, a flexible bracelet that adds some flair to your bun, or cool clips that you can adorn throughout your hair. Not only a great way to beat the summer heat, but you can also use them for formal occasions, weddings, and more. Control frizz and make sure your clips don’t go anywhere throughout the day by finishing the look with some Love Beauty and Planet Light Hold & Frizz Control Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Light Hold Hair Spray.
