The Met Gala never fails to amaze us with the wide variety of stunning fashion and accessories that we get to witness. (If only we got to play dress up in all those gorgeous聽gowns, amirite!) Well, we will bring you one step closer to Met Gala fashion with DIY cutouts and bedazzled hair pieces just like our girls HAIM wore. And, FYI, these hair pieces aren鈥檛 just for the Met Gala 鈥 they are great additions for prom hair, wedding hair and even 30th birthday hair.

We found these two beaded fleur-de-lis patches for five dollars at our local fabric store. By overlaying these pieces, we created a new shape for our headband. Glue down onto a long piece of felt, and then cut away the extra felt from the sides.

Sandwich a piece of elastic cord in between two pieces of felt and add a dab of hot glue. We doubled up the elastic cord for extra support.

If headbands aren鈥檛 for you, try creating bedazzled clips. We loved the bunting look of this beaded lace, so we glued it to a small piece of felt and trimmed to reveal the triangle shape.

Hot glue to a barette clip and you are one step closer to being more like HAIM.

It鈥檚 all about the bling, so mix and match your laces to create a brooch-inspired hair piece. Nothing is off limits when it comes to hair bling!

We suggest throwing a beaded headband into a second day hair pony to take it to that next level :)

We were really feeling the bride vibes with bride-to-be Paige in this photo. Red lip, subtle waves and a stunning hair brooch are a great combination for any wedding day.
