Hair Accessories: The Definitive Guide

Source:

Hair accessories come in lots of different shapes and sizes. Many are great for securing your hairstyles, some are a good way of getting your bangs off your face, and others work just as well as hair adornments. 

Jaw Clip

Jaw clipA jaw clip is pretty much used as an alternative to a hair tie for keeping longer hair up and out of the way.


Variations

Jaw clips come in a range of sizes, colors and styles- including really small "mini jaw clips." There's even diamante encrusted ones, and jaw clips with swirls and other patterns.


How to Use and Tips

How to Style: Brush hair back into a ponytail and grasp with hand, twist hair and lift upwards and secure with jaw clip along the length of the twist.

Tips: The jaw clip is a great way to get your hair out of the way if you want to wash your face or shower without getting your hair wet.

CombThese are the little plastic combs that you insert into your hair to lock it into place.


Variations

Variations are mainly in size- a bigger comb obviously being a better choice for longer, thicker hair. Hand sawn combs are more hair-friendly but tend to be expensive.



How to Style: These combs are simple to use, but only when you know how. The thing is that you put them in backwards and upside down, and this is so that when you flip them over they lock your hair tight in place. After you flip the comb and wedge it into your hair, the teeth need to be facing toward the front of your head.

Tips: It's easy to get a softer look by pushing the comb forward a bit and creating more fluffiness around the face.

Scarves and Head Wraps

ScarveGenerally these accessories include any kind of material that's wrapped or tied around the head.


Variations

The main difference between these accessories is fabric, width, length (and how many times it's wrapped around the head), and whether or not the fabric is fitted to sit on the head- like a hat that's tied at the back.

How to Use and Tips

How to Style: Scarves and head wraps are as easy as "place, wrap and tie."

Tips: Scarves are worn as a style in their own right, but they're also good for preserving your hairstyle while you travel to your event- just remember not to tie them too tight.

Pins

PinsPins are thin metal, curved at one end and open at the other.


Variations

Hair pins come in a bunch of different sizes and colors, and they also range from plain to jewellery encrusted.

How to Use and Tips

How to Style: Pins are great for securing buns and more formal styles like chignons.

Tips: Pins that match your hair color are a great way to create invisible hold, but if you want some sparkle, try pins with a little ornamentation. Also, if you're using pins a bit of hairspray for some extra hold won't go astray.

Suitable


Stretch Combs

Stretch combStretch combs are kind of like a cross between combs and hair bands- in other words they are a giant hairband comb that stretches around your head.


Variations

Stretch combs really only come in different colors.

How to Use and Tips

How to Style: Scrape the hair back, place the comb around the head and secure it at the back. Stretch combs are an easy and cheap accessory.

Tips: Don't pay too much for one!

Barrette

BarretteA barrette is used for gathering, fastening or clipping the hair; for example to hold the hair in a half up style, a ponytail, or to clip the bangs out of the eyes.


Variations

Barrettes come in a range of sizes, and some are more decorative than the others. We particularly like bow barrettes at the moment.

How to Use and Tips

How to Use: It's as simple as "grab and clip" with a barrette, and it'll even fit in your pocket.


Clip/Snap Clip

ClipThese are those little metal clips that come in a range of colors, and make a "snapping" sound when they close. They're mostly worn by kids, but they can have more adult uses too.


Variations

Snap clips come in a range of sizes, from tiny to small, and a range of colors too.

How to Use and Tips

How to Use: Put them in your hair, and snap shut- it's that easy and you can even do it with one hand.

Tips: Snap clips are used pretty much for the same things as "mini jaw clips," but the advantage is they sit nice and flat and a little tighter, so they have a more secure hold. If you don't want to look too much like your tween daughter, avoid the bright colors.


Elastics

ElasticsThese are the quickest, simplest and cheapest way to get your hair out of your eyes, but they can make your hair look great too... Sometimes the simplest things are the best!


Variations

"Hair elastic" is a broad term that includes scrunchies and ponytailers. A ponytailer is basically a hair elastic with something decorative (marbles or butterflies) attached.

How to Use and Tips

How to Use: Using an elastic is pretty much just a case of gathering your hair together and stretching an elastic over it, but if you want to do it right check out how to get the perfect ponytail.

Tips: Rubber bands aren't hair elastics! If you don't want to break your hair and inflict pain on yourself, make sure you use rubber bands coated with fabric, or "hair elastics" made specially by a hairstyling company.

Tiaras

TiaraTiaras are cown-like hair accessories that come in a variety of styles and levels of detail.


Variations

Tiaras can be silver and gold, and the adornment comes in a range of sizes- from a little ornate decoration to a full Queen Elizabeth style crown.

How to Use and Tips

How to Style: Style your hair first and either glide the tiara into your hair, or place it on top.

Tips: Get some advice from a professional and make sure your tiara suits your hairstyle.

Head Pieces

Head PiecesHead pieces are decorative items (like feathers, flowers, netting and stuff) attached to clips and sometimes headbands.


Variations

The obvious difference between head pieces is with the ornamentation, its size and color, its attachment (clip or pins), and the cost.

How to Use and Tips

How to style: Head pieces are usually as simple as clip and go.

Tips: Typically you buy this sort of thing online, and our biggest piece of advice is to make sure you see the head piece on a model so that you can guage exactly how big it is (and avoid opening the package from the mail and being shocked that it's teeny).

Headbands


image: http://images.thehairstyler.com/attachment_resources/attachments/881/original/headbands-img.jpg

HeadbandsHeadbands are accessories that sit around the head, but unlike scarves you don't wrap them around your head.


Variations

Headbands are always in fashion, and that's because there's a huge range to choose from. These include: ultra skinny, plait-like (for the boho look), thick (plastic or silver), combed, twist and snap or with ornamentation.

How to Use and Tips

Make sure you get the right size headband for your noggin because it'll hurt if it's too small.

Sticks

SticksUse sticks instead of combs, pins and clips to secure upstyles that involve gathering, twisting or rolling the hair. They can also be worn purely for adornment.


Variations

Hair sticks often come in pairs, and are sometimes plain (like chopsticks) or quite ornate and made from quality materials like silver, and with decorative ends and dangling ornamentation. They come in different lengths and sizes.

How to Use and Tips

How to Style: If you're using the stick to secure a bun, it's important to spear the bun, collect a section of hair, lever and rotate the stick and then insert it again.


Clips/Banana Clips

Banana clipA banana clip is the curved hair accessory that opens and is fastened at one end. It's typically used to secure updos.


Variations

Banana clips, like jaw clips, come in a range of sizes, styles and prices. There's the basic tortoiseshell type, and more fancy patterned banana clips with rhinestones and diamantes.

How to Use and Tips

How to Use: Banana clips can easily be used for securing the hair in a ponytail. They're also good for French twists; all you need to do is twist and tuck the hair and insert the clip on both ends.

Tips: The longer and thicker your hair, the stronger and heavier the banana clip you need.
