Hey there! If you’ve kept up or read any of my most recent posts, you’ll know that today’s DIY is inspired by Rihanna’s look in “This Is What You Came For“! I fell in love with her hair jewelry and figured it’d be easy to create a similar look using Shop Miss A products!
If you didn’t know everything at Shop Miss A costs only $1! Great for all you fellow fashionistas and DIY gals out there! We’re saving money by using earring cuffs and multiple-gem earrings instead of heading to Michael’s and paying an arm & a leg for individual jewels. We’re even saving time since the design is already pre-made into an earring cuff! We won’t have to arrange too many little jewels into an eye-catching design!
Watch the video below to learn how I made all of the hair jewelry in this outfit, featuring spikes and earrings! Continue reading below for links to all materials used, as well as step-by-step instructions!

*Disclaimer: Shop Miss A products tend to sell out very quickly! Understandable when the goods are only $1! But the really good news – new product turn-around is SUPER fast! There’s always new inventory to choose from on Shop Miss A!

Step One: Assemble/connect spike heads to nail backs. I’ve used a total of 13 spikes for each hair comb.
Step Two: Use your glue gun to glue each spike to the hair comb in even spaces.
◊ Tip: Press firmly on each spike to better secure the spike to the comb while glue is drying.
Voila! Super simple and edgy!
Step One: Gather your jewelry and cut/bend/manipulate the earring backs for better application of the jewel onto a hair comb or bobby pin.
◊ Tip: Earring backs can be cut off with your scissors and/or pliers, or alternatively, twisted off with your bare hands!
◊ Tip: Earrings that dangle/use a hook are the easiest to twist off with your hands!
Step Two: Glue the earring onto a hair comb or a bobby pin.
◊ Tip: When gluing, be sure to leave enough space on the bobby pin for the bobby pin to open just slightly! The above YouTube video shows you exactly what I mean.
Step Three: Place your hair into a ponytail and arrange your jewels into the style you like!
All done! All easy.
Such an easy DIY right?! I love that we’re saving both time and money! This DIY can even be done using any old jewelry you have lying around! But if you don’t hoard/hold onto old jewelry, hit up Shop Miss A for $1 earrings and jewelry!
If you give this DIY a try, #NC4OT to show me!
Until next time!
