When I take a look at my own personal beauty arsenal and dare to make necessary cuts, I always consider the products and accessories I truly couldn't live without. Moroccanoil Hydrating Style Cream? Check. Kate Somerville DermalQuench Liquid Lift? Check. L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara? Quadruple check. But now I may have met the hair accessory that will actually change my life.

Meet the Leatherdos Hair Clip.

I caught my first glimpse of this multi-tasking survival tool thanks to our friends at Bustle, who note it would slay during the zombie apocalypse, and I knew I had to learn more.

This innocent-from-a-distance hair clip can literally double as any number of tools ranging from a flat phillips screwdriver to a wrench and it will make you feel like a total badass while keeping your hair out of your face.

Seriously, Bear Grylls himself couldn't have come up with a finer survival tool in the form of a hair accessory. Made of stainless steel, it also features a ruler, knife and can even act as a match holder if you feel the need to set the mood with a little candlelight…without the candle.

And for the low, low price of $9 (available at, it's well worth the investment.
