Is it just me, or is it really easy to fall into a rut with your hairstyle? Sure, the low pony is universally flattering and such a timesaver for those days when you accidentally spend, like, 20 minutes on just your eyebrows. But if you want a little upgrade to your signature lewk for the holidays without trying too hard (because who has time for that), Lily-Rose Depp has the lazy-girl hack for you.

In a recent Vogue video featuring the actress and model prepping for Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show in New York City, she skipped reaching for a barrette or bejeweled hairband in favor of (genius!) a clip-on earring. (Skip to around 1:00 in the video.)

“I thought with this ’60s, half-up thing, it might be cute to have a little sparkle in the hair and something to kind of catch the eye,” Depp said. Her stylist simply clamped a Chanel Camélia earring around the elastic of the hair-tie. And voilà! Sparkle.

Since dropping ten grand on a pair of earrings doesn’t exactly fit into the everywoman’s budget, remember that you could replicate this styling hack with any pair of clip-ons you have lying around (or any you shop on Etsy). Personally, I have a few pairs that I inherited when my grandmother passed away that I plan on removing from their velvet boxes and pinning them in pulled-back Dutch braids this holiday season. How have I not thought of this before?! Easy, right?
