Fashion has a tendency to go round and round in patterns. The 1920 and 30 hairstyles are back! This is large and flashy jewelry and hair fashions. These pieces include large ribbons, feathers and ample jewels. There is nothing plain in the retro headband or hair accessory. These pieces are all flash and fancy, guaranteed to draw the eye with its flash.
There are a few different retro hair accessories on the market right now. The most common is the head band. This is an easy to use hair piece that can be used with hair of any thickness and length. Simply place the band over the head and wear. The comb, like the one featured in the picture, requires long hair and thick or curly hair. Hats and pins are also big right in their retro styles.
While often times a specific designer or color will be fashionable, with the retro style hair products and accessories, it is the shape and design that is favored over a specific designer or color. There is a wider variety of colors and materials available now than there ever was when the original style took off. The use of features, rhinestones and cloth has been supplemented with metal and lace as well.
When purchasing the piece, make sure it will stay comfortably on your head. Some of the metal bands tend to cut into the head and cause head aches. The combs can be difficult for a person to use if their hair is short or fine. Too heavy of a piece or one that is uncomfortable to wear will only become a distraction to the wearer, rather than a fashion accessory for that individual. The piece should be tried on before purchasing to make sure it looks good with the person’s hair, eyes and skin and that it is not too tight or too heavy.
Just because the piece is beautiful does not mean it works for everyone. However, the flash of a fancy hair accessory can make a bland outfit pop and help to turn a day outfit into a night outfit. Match this with some retro jewelry and you are sure to make a bright and bold statement when out with friends. Take these retro pieces and rock them!
