Some of the best hair accessories are invisible! Bumpits are hair volumizing inserts that are self-gripping, leave-in pieces of plastic that give hair instant volume.

No. 9: Bunmaker

The Fascinator, a hairpiece recently popularized by Princess Kate Middleton, is a great hair accent and a fabulous attention-getter! While everyday feathers may be on their way out, a big plumed fascinator may be just what your prom ensemble needs!

No. 3: Silver Headband

A gorgeous Silver Headband with a beautiful cluster of rhinestone encrusted flowers off to one side adds a touch of elegance and tops off a beautiful feminine look.

No. 2: Flowers

Weaving flowers in your hair seems so romantic, but live flowers wilt by evening's end. Dried baby's breath woven into a braided updo, a wreath or a hair clip, however, don't dry out and add a delicate touch of romance to your lovely look.

No. 1: Tiara

Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
