3.) D.I.Y what you can- Pintrest is overrun with tutorials on how to make accessories one thing  I can say that is super easy to make are hair accessories Stop by Michael’s or Hobby Lobby and  purchase the clips, a hot glue gun, felt and whatever will match your outfit and just start sticking things together. This look works really well on short hair, Updo’s and long hair that is swept to one side, You instantly look more dressed up.

4.) Repurpose- Thrift stores are a goldmine for quirky items that can be repurposed. For example long chain or pear necklaces can replace the straps on an old clutch, you can use clip on earrings as small broaches and necklaces can make adorable headbands if you get invited to any Gatsby themed Soirees.

5.) Go Old School- In the  early 20th century very few women frequented salons, most women knew how to roll or pin there hair and would wear the same style for several days, take a note from your foremothers and get creative with rollers, bobby pins and even paper bags you can set your hair the night before the event so that it falls perfectly at your big event check out these tutorials.
