It’s not enough to have a good haircut or even great color. Women want versatility, and since necessity breeds invention, hair accessories entered the lives of women everywhere. There is no shortage of hair tools, but the following five accessories continue to remain the most popular means of achieving hair care variety.
Hair extensions offer additionally thickness and length for those who either don’t have it or want more of it. They eliminate the need to be patient while your hair grows. Why wait when you can add inches whenever you want? Extra length means extra options as far as braids and ponies are concerned.
When your hair is in your face and eyes, every activity is more frustrating. Whether headbands were created initially for beauty or function is unknown, but in today’s society they offer both. Narrow, wide, colorful, or plain, headbands provide practical versatility for users. (Side note: if you don’t have a headband readily available, sunglasses serve the same purpose.)
Clips range from something as simple as a barrette for a little girl to an ornamental piece like the one purchased in The Gift of the Magi. They hold back tiny sections of hair or an entire head of hair depending on the desire of the user. Whether they are inexpensive plastic or bejeweled headpieces, clips are timeless accessories.
Pony tails are not just for athletes any more. Elastic pony holders are used to hold braids, to create the foundation of a basic bun, and for a distinguished pulled-back look. With the creation of pony holders that look like hair, the usually casual look of a pony is transformed into a stylish tie-back.
Bobby pins are the unsung heroes of hair accessories, so they had to be included on the list. Without bobby pins, formal hairstyles would fall, sprigs of hair would move out of position, and bangs would always be bangs. Dancers, models, and brides would have significantly less versatility in their hair styles without bobby pins.
