Thanks to a huge range of hair accessories at affordable prices, no matter what your beauty budget may be, YOU too can have that celebrity look!! All it takes ladies is plenty of practises and some patience.
Here is a list of Hair Accessories and a brief summary;
• Hair clips
Ranging from the small and discrete to the big and bold. A hair clip can be the making of loose tumbling locks or give the wow factor to a simple but stylish up-do.
• Hair combs
Like the hair clip, a hair comb can turn the most simplest of styles into a piece of art.
Unlike the hair clip, a comb can create volume to your hair as well as decoratively holding a style securely in place.
• Hair Pins
They are very decorative and are perfect to adorn a French pleat or chignon.
Many Brides and Bridesmaids wear hair pins on their big day as you can find a huge variety of designs.
• Hair Slides
They are very versatile. You can use a hair slide to hold a style in place or scatter them throughout the hair and use them as decoration. Many wedding parties use hair slides due to their versatility and low cost.
• Hair claws
A hair claw may be a first on some of you but actually I expect you all have one or even two at home! It’s just the name you may not be accustomed to. Commonly known as the crocodile clip, due to the spiky and sometimes sharp set of teeth which grip and hold the hair each side. Again they come in all sizes and designs. I would recommend a hair claw if you are wearing your hair in an up-do.
• Hair Bands
I know many of you now have the image of your daughters scrunchy you have sent her off to school in, but please don’t be mistaken in thinking hair bands are only for children! This is definitely not the case. There is an enormous variety of hair bands out there, for women of all ages. Ranging from the large, velvet bands in an assortment of colours to the simple bands with a jewelled attachment. The perfect hair accessory to transform a ponytail from plain to super chic. And ladies…PLEASE do not use a hair band to solely hide a bad hair day or on those Sunday’s with your joggers! A hair band to match your shoes or hand bag is an essential part of your evening wardrobe.
• Concord Clips
Like the hair slide and hair pin, the concord clip is very versatile. It can be used to hold your hair style in place or simply as decoration. A concord clip is great to use in all hair types.
• Head Bands
A great come back for the hair band over the past few years! With many celebs being snapped wearing one. Like the hair band, the head band is NOT only for children. Brides and Bridesmaids alike are turning to the head band as a cheaper and sometimes more comfortable option as opposed to a Tiara. Unlike many other hair accessories, the head band can be worn no matter what your hair type or length is. In fact I seem to recall the odd footballer wearing a head band in its more practical use!
Traditional head dressing but by no means a thing of the past! With a wide collection of diamante headpieces to feathers to pearls (and the list goes on..)…ideal to dress tumbling curls, a romantic chignon or elegant up-do. Another Bridal favourite!
The ultimate in Bridal wear but please ladies, get your money’s worth and don’t just wear it on your wedding day! Dust it off and feel like the princess again. This hair accessory is far too precise to stay boxed at the bottom of your wardrobe.
TOP TIP for any hair Accessory;
Whether your purchasing a hair pin to a headpiece, please make sure it will be secure in your type of hair. The last thing you want is for your hair accessory to slip out, minutes after putting it in place. A head of fine hair will need a thin narrow grip to the clip, something wide and weighty will only slide out and when buying a hair comb, make sure the teeth are shorter and closer together. A lady with thicker hair will need a comb with longer, fewer and more spread apart teeth.
