A side pony tail can be difficult style for short locs. With this hairdo, I made a side pony tail on my curly locs by dividing my hair into an upper half and a lower half. I pulled the lower half of my locs in a side pony tail. I pinned the top right portion of the upper half down with a few bobby pins. Then, I incorporated part of the upper half into the side pony tail.
My flower accessory cost $1.39 from JoAnne’s. I noticed that flower accessories can cost as much as $10, especially the large ones. Being the thrifty individual I am, I took a stroll through JoAnne’s and noticed all of the available flowers.
The one I’m wearing had a clasp attached to it, but it had pointy teeth that stuck to my locs and ripped out my hair. So, I pulled that thing off as well as yanked the plastic backing of the flower off. This made the flower fall apart a little. I used hot glue to reattach it. Then, I hot glued a leaf from some other fake flowers I had around an alligator clip. I then glued the leaf portion that was attached to the clip to the flower, using super glue. (The hot glue would not hold it).
That’s how I made my flower clip for nearly 90 percent the cost of ones you can get pre-made!
