Hair accessories are what can make your 'do extra special. Often the best accessories come from your own jewelry box. Find a beautiful diamond or crystal bracelet and use bobby pins to drape it at the bottom of a chignon or weave the bracelet into a braid and secure with pins.
Dangling earrings also create an easy, show-stopping look. Run a bobby pin through the earring clasp and secure to one side of a chignon.
Three earrings to try:
To dress up a look, add an embellished comb or brooch (can be an heirloom) with a simple low chignon. Use a few bobby pins to secure the broach at the chignon. If you prefer to wear your hair down, create a deep side part and curl hair with the KISS InstaWave ($59.99, Amazon.com) and place the embellished comb above the ear.
