Keep Barrettes in Fine Hair

I am so psyched. I've been wanting to post this hint for a long time, but I hadn't figured out how to do it.

If you have a girl, like I do, with very fine hair you will love this hint.

I have learned a trick for keeping barrettes in fine hair. And it really works for me!

Barrettes just don't stay in very fine hair very easily. You put them in and an hour later at least one, if not both barrettes, have fallen out. I cannot begin to count the number of times I have re-placed barrettes in Cora's hair. If you've ever tried keeping barrettes in fine hair you know what this is like.

I've been putting barrettes in her hair this way for about 2 years now and I loooveee it. They actually stay in her hair -- most of the time.

So today I'm passing along this wonderful little trick. I'm posting this vlog of me putting a barrette in her hair. There's no audio in the video, so don't think you're computer has freaked out. It's just my phobia kicking in - camera goes on and my brain goes completely void of words.

Basically the steps are:
1. Place barrette through hair.
2. Wrap a small portion around the barrette.
3. Add a small additional bit of hair.
4. Clip barrette.

The video really does a better job of showing it than I can explain it in words.

I need to thank a few people for this hint.

First, thanks to my cousin who originally showed me how to do this.
Second, many thanks to my hubby who used his fantastic camera and video-editing skills to get this vlog together. He's really amazing.

I love it! My daughter is still too young to sit that still, but I'm putting this tip in my hair-doing arsenal.
