Advice on Decorative Hair Clip Style for Pixie Cuts
Trying out a decorative hair clip could be one of those items we think about for long hair. But why not use them for any length of hair styles?? I’m giving my opinions and advice on how to make any hair accessory work for you. This comes after Lesley showcased how she changes up a look with some options. And Charlotte shows how to hide hair accessories yet have them work hard.
BTW, if you are a blogger, there will be a link up tomorrow. I hope you join us!!

Even with short hair including a pixie cut, you can have a bad hair day! So some of these decorative hair clips can go a long way to either change the focus on what “isn’t” going right with the hair style OR just to add flair.
BTW, excuse how some of these create more mess with my hair. They were done in the reflection of a window and I couldn’t tell how they looked. Now that’s real life for you!!
Let me start with the best advice for you and your head!! Make an appointment and sit down with your trusted hair stylist first. Why? Because that person deals with hair all the time and hopefully knows the best ways to make any kind of decorative hair clip work best in yours.
In fact, that’s exactly what I’ve done in the past and it was eye opening.

How to Make Your Hair Look Different with Various Methods
Personally, my stylist told me I have a small occipital bone. Who knew? It’s not a detail we usually compare to each other.
Because of this, it’s not easy for scarves to wrap around my head and stay put. However, after learning this fact, I now know that I can use scarves as long as I bobby pin them in place.
Before this I just thought I was doing something wrong.
My stylist also gave me examples of which decorative hair clip would work best (and not work great) in my fine, thin hair. It was worth the cost for the appointment to save me from buying the wrong hair accessories. PLUS I also learned better ways to use what I already had in my arsenal.
Join me as I showcase the pieces I have and try to remember to wear!!
This is not much different than Lesley wearing her headband except mine is just for decoration. I’m not really pulling any hair back or changing the style. What I do think it does is add some color to my face, create interest to the top part of an outfit or cover a piece of hair that is sticking straight up, LOL!
When I buy headbands now, I know that the full ones work better for me. I couldn’t figure out how to describe this kind vs. the classic kind that end behind your ears.
Decorate Your Head Band
As someone who loves to decorate any part of her body, I figured you could even decorate your headband. For a cloth head band, you could use a brooch or pin, and with a leather one like this, a magnet works.
I wanted to showcase this headband because it’s a little different than most. It was one that I was gifted when we talked about Lilla Rose products (see the blog post here).
The Lilla Rose headbands come with adjustable straps PLUS you can order the standard length or long length depending on your head size.
This post isn’t sponsored, but I did reach out to my Lilla Rose rep, Laurie, to see about any discount codes for you to use. I’ve included the images above if you are interested in either of them.
Insider tip: Lilla Rose’s flexi clips can be used as a scarf clip instead of for your hair. We showcased that in this blog post.
Decorative Hair Clip Action
Here are three examples of different hair clips and they aren’t functional at all. They are just there to add a little spice to the outfit or look.
One thing I learned from my hair stylist is that you can criss cross the bobby pins to get them to stay if your hair is thin.
Insider tip: The silver star bobby pin is a Lilla Rose brand, and it actually stays in my hair by itself because they are made with a sturdier metal and are tight all the way down the shaft of the bobby pin.
Insider tip: If you are looking to have your hair accessories be seen, make sure to choose a contrasting color than your hair color. Sometimes we pick the colors we like, but those don’t always show up well. Vice versa, if you want to hide them, pick ones that match your hair!!
For example the navy blue bow barrette can hardly be seen, yet the silver bobbies are very evident.
Personally because of my huge struggle with my hair over the years (see the post here), I have had fake pony tails, and a couple of wigs!! I LOVE them, however, my husband is not a fan.
While I have yet to try hair extensions, I did win this hair braid from Madison Braids last year in an Instagram giveaway. I’ve been impressed with how well it matches although I realize it’s obviously not my hair. But it’s certainly easy to add a decorative hair clip in it!
I’m sure there are other companies that make these kinds of products. Now the question is would I spend the money on one if I hadn’t won it. Probably not, but that’s just me.
