Would You Wear… Statement Bobby Pins?


dreamsbythesea’s Etsy Shop, Free People,

Every once in a while, a trend comes around that has us wondering why it hasn’t been in our lives for years. Granted, statement bobby pins were a thing when we were children, except they were covered in pink ribbons, bows, and rhinestones galore. The grown-up version has just emerged as a new way to shake up your hair game this summer, so what are you waiting for?

Arguably most popular are’s styles (I’ve already snatched one up!), which make quite the statement without breaking the bank. Other rad versions include flowers, studs, and even insects (like the adorable bumblebee bobby pins below!).

    Been buying fancy bobby pins since I learned how to do my own hair! I love them! The ones with the words on them aren’t for me though, I prefer designs. :)

    Just pointing this out but there’s no reason to spend 15+ on these bad boys. This would be a super easy DIY! Just take some of your extra bobby pins and glue cute charms, crystals, silk flowers, etc. and boom. Same look, less money ;)

    I’ve been really into statement bobby pins lately and I didn’t even realise that it was a thing! I’m in love with the bumblebee ones and am definitely going to try to DIY (and even blog about that project) some soon!
