You must’ve noticed that hair accessories are back in fashion. The hair styling tools that were once used to secure hair into various hairstyles are now worn to style hair at big fashion events. They have now gone from the bottom of the drawer to runway with their charming & sophisticated design.
Hair Accessories can tie your outfit together & add polish & style to your hair. These are also helpful in saving you from those bad hair days. From hair clips, side combs, hair barrettes, hair snaps, and hair jaws to ponytail holders, the hair accessories are once again becoming the most preferred option for secure the hair in style.
Along with hair sticks, barrettes, and jaws, hair stylists & jewelry designers are bringing side combs back into the mainstream. With a side comb, you don’t have to use headbands & ponytail holders in favor of a more exciting touch. Plus, it is a great option to switch to when you want a comfortable & lightweight hair accessory to secure your hair instead of other accessories that happen to pull your hair in a tight hairdo.
Side Combs are extremely versatile hair accessories used to make simple to intricate hairstyles. While people are very fond of these handy & lovely accessories, but they still struggle to use them effectively. From half up hairstyles, buns to vintage looks, chignons, braids & classic French twists to intricate hairdos, a side comb can add a point of interest & style to so many hairdos, that too without the use of harsh pins & elastics that can potentially snag or damage your hair.
Side combs were initially used to decorate bridal hair. Apart from using the accessory for creating beautiful wedding hairstyles, now they are also used to create hairstyles to carry your hair beautifully every day. They are perfect for every day wear & are an easy & quick way to add a statement to your favorite hairstyle for any occasion. They help to combine a classic look with a modern twist.
You can simply use a side comb to secure one side of the hair up behind the ear. Some intricate hairstyles created from side combs do need a lot of practice but once you conquer the art, you can turn heads on any formal or informal gathering.

Then hold the roll of hair up against your head & carefully roll it to the left so that the ends are hidden against the back of the head.

Make sure to push the side comb firmly into the hair underneath so that the hairdo stays completely in place.
