Sugru Hair Barrette




This is one of my favorite hair barrettes. I like the fact that it gets my hair up fast while driving or when I'm in the kitchen. What I don't like is my hair won't stay in the darned thing. I have very straight hair and within minutes I have the barrette still attached to my head, but my hair is out of it and back down my back.

Our Maker Space was having an Instructables Sugru event so I brought my little clip to see what I could do to make it better.

Step 1: Gather the Supplies

The supplies for this were really simple.

  • Hair Barrette
  • Packet of Sugru
  • Baby Wipes (we found these worked better than paper towels or soapy water)

Step 2: Follow the Directions on the Package

As the package said I opened it, pinched off little balls of the stuff and then rolled it on the table to make little snakes.

Step 3: Apply Sugru

I took the little snakes and applied them to the inside of the barrette.

Step 4: Done

I then put it down and left it for 24 hours - Honestly that was the hardest part. I wanted to keep playing with it - it's very much like play dough or clay.

    So I'm going to do this to every one of my barrettes now... Thanks for sharing, it looks like it's working really well!
