Fashion & Styling Tips Using Hair Accessories

1. Hair Clips – There are multiple varieties of hair clips available in fancy street shops. Bobby pins are used to clip little hair and hair claws can hold any amount. There are some clips that can be used only at the crown of head, some near the ear lobe etc. Bobby pins are versatile as they can are multi purpose. Chinese women fancy hair clips a lot and they are one of the biggest hair accessory manufacturers in the world.

When you plan to buy hair clips, you need to consider the length and thickness of the hair. Prefer blunt edged claws so that the clip won't chop your hair whenever you wear. Do not clip hair too tightly

2. Salon Clips – For thicker hair, salon clip are best as they are expandable and can gently hold good amount of hair. Many even use it to roll their hair on crown (head crown). For a casual look, many women prefer salon clips.

3. Hair Extension Clips – You might have observed stars changing hairstyles in every other movie so how is it possible? Well, there are hair extension clips used to attach and detach the amount of hair whenever required. For coloured streaks and braids, women prefer wearing artificial hair as it can be taken off anytime and clips are very useful for the same.

4. Hair Bands & Ties – However fashionable the clips are, the usage isn't as comfortable as the hair bands and ties. Bands and ties are for any hair type, they are soft, expandable and won't pain after a long use. Ties are very reasonable and come in any colour you ask for. You can also style your hair into a messy bun using ties.

Nowadays, you can find stone studded, feathery, beaded or sequined hair clips that can worn for a party, wedding or any grand event. Clips look best for straight/ soft curls. Frizzy, rough hair look even messy with clips so it is best to avoid hair accessories for such a hair type.

The length of the hair is never a problem as clips ranging sizes are available. Remember to take off all the hair clips/ hair accessories before you go to bed as it may twist hair when you flip sides in sleep and damage badly.
