Sea Inspired Hairgrips

Sea Inspired Hairgrips

Whether your hair is short or long, hairgrips are so versatile, easy to wear and add touch of colour to any outfit.

In the picture, we have used a selection of different sized stones but you can choose different stones from our large selection of cabochons. We sell our hairgrips in a pack of ten so you can choose a selection of stones.

All you need to make a hairgrip is some 'Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy' glue which is the glue that we recommend for jewellery making and setting stones.

Step by step instructions

Prepare the glue by mixing in a small dish. Once mixed, the glue sets in 5 minutes, so ensure you set your cabochon straight away.

You can use some sandpaper to roughen the back of the cabochon so it keys easier to the hairgrip. 

Leave to dry until the glue is fully set and then it's ready to wear!
