Choosing the Perfect Hair Accessories

Women have always had a love affair with hair accessories. The earliest
recorded appearance of hair accessories dates back to the early Greek
and Roman times. Some anthropologists even believe that cave dwellers
may have used sticks or thorns as crude hair clips!

One particular hair accessory, the hair bow, first became popular in the
Victorian Era during Queen Victoria’s reign from 1837 to 1901. Fast

with your clothes! This might come off as tacky and too dated. Instead,
look for those that are in the same color palette. When in doubt, just
opt to use as little as possible. A simple hair clip with elegant
details will already do wonders for your style.

Work. Most work situations will require you to wear your hair up.
Since it is a place with a very professional atmosphere, you will have
to be more discriminating when choosing your hair accessories. Wearing
