We came upon mini-claw clips, and we used about five of them around the perimeter of the bun to secure our hair while we slept—we couldn’t believe how perfect my waves still were the next morning. For those of you who take time and pride in curling your hair (or rather, those of you who get blowouts), you’ll definitely want to use this.
