Has anyone tried the new spin pin hair clips? They look like wire or plastic corkscrews and you twist them into a hairstyle to hold them in place. I have been fascinated by them but super reluctant to spend $7+ for 2 hair clips. Today we were at Hobby Lobby looking at bead findings and they had 3 wire spin pin type things (not the brand name, these are wire and the same brand as the plain barrettes and jewelry findings) for just $1.99!!!! I got one to try and they are AWESOME!!! I doubt I will decorate them, but you could fasten beads or some type of decoration or even put ribbons on them if you wanted. My hair is super hard to put up into any style (most hairstylists end up cursing about the third time I go to leave and the hair falls out of the updo or braid before I leave the salon) and these stayed with no problems. They also didn't dig into my head like combs and even bobby pins can. $1.99 makes them awesome small gifts or stocking stuffers.
