Mr found some awesome old tooled leather a few years ago and snagged it. The other day he finally got around into cutting out an oval shape from part of it and making it into a leather barrette (sacrificing a bamboo chopstick in the process). Problem is, my hair is rather fine and VERY slippery. When I first tried using it to make a ponytail it fell out. So I decided to “cheat” and put my hair in a ponytail with a rubber band, and then add the barrette with the skewer part above the rubber band. Does everyone do this? does just the barrette work for anyone? How do I girl?
