Summer is officially here and what better way to bring in the change of the new season than to diversify your look. Hair is one of the most recognizable ways to create change in a big way, but for some, playing it safe regarding hair is a more appealing option. Well accessorizing may be your answer. Quick and easy, accessories can provide versatility, altering the look of your tresses while transitioning.
Gone are the days of just the plain old retro cotton head band; bejeweled, beaded or feathered, headbands are one of the most accessible accessories of the bunch. Now in a wide variety of styles, these detailed accents can enhance even the most ordinary do. Also headbands works as a great relief for camouflaging hairline issues while recouping or reviving from damage.
Decorative Bobby Pins
Decorative pins have changed the game completely. Found in countless styles, these little secret weapons can add a little spice to any style, or if you are looking for a DIY project the options are endless.
Temporary Hair Color or Color Clip Ins
Want the appearance of drastic change without the commitment? Temporary hair color or color clip ins are an easy alternative. Try more extreme tones of pinks, blues and purples in washable dyes. Unlike permanent hair color, most temporary hair color coats the hair shaft rather than penetrating the cortex, providing color sans the harsh chemicals.
Many times the fight against humidity is a desperately losing battle so why fight it? Headwraps are an efficient, stylish and great protective style, without the hassle.
What I like to describe as the baby version of the headwrap. With less fabric, hair scarfs naturally have better ventilation and are a down-sized, version of the wrap. Need a way to revamp a protective style or a 3 day old braid-out from transitioning, scarves are a great way to breath life into any style.
