We love some of the dinosaur inspiration for this accessory from Jennifer Behr‘s Fendi runways appearance. Just because we are using dinosaurs as our muse does not mean we can make as much of a mess of it as Jerassic Park. We want our look edgy and glamorous. To complete this look we of course need a plastic hair comb a pound shop one is the cheapest but if you want something a bit mores sturdy then go to Claire’s or accessorise. It is best to get one that is about four inches so it is able to be hidden once in use but wide enough to attach your spikes to. Speaking of which… you need nine brass cone spikes you can easily get these from Hobbycraft or Ebay. If you want some spikes in different colours you can also get them in plastic. Of course the final aid is our animal friendly awesome glue E6000 GLUE to keep our accessory together.

Spike away

This accessory is super easy to make! The first step is obviously to make sure that there is no dust on any of your things. I know this seems totally silly but it can make the glue funny so let my hindsight be your foresight and learn from my mistakes. Start with your left side of the comb and add a small amount of liquid super glue to the end. Put a metal spike on top and hold it in place for about 30 seconds. Let it dry completely before letting go. Repeat on the other end of the comb and gluing another spike.

Time to rule

Then we have to make sure that these babies look even and don’t scream amiteur. Use a ruler and place the rest of the spikes along the comb to make sure there is even spacing between each spike. To make sure that these spikes set evenly continue to glue the spike, alternating from one side of the comb to the other.

Setting for high fashion

To make sure that we hide the spikes on shot and not the comb it is best to match it is a messy style. This could be brilliant with a beehive or a tousled hair look. If you want to match it with a more sleek look you will need to pop in some extensions and give yourself the extra volume.
