THE STORY BEHIND HAIR ACCESSORIES...

Hair accessories have been utilized since Roman times, as the first usage can be traced back to 200 B.C. when the Romans wore hair nets. The Japanese were also wearing hair ornaments as far back as 300 B.C.! Hair rings were very common in ancient times and by the end of the Bronze Age, people in Great Britain, Belgium, and France had begun donning gold, bronze, clay, or lead hair rings/accessories.

The Egyptians wore very similar hair pieces and they have been found in their tombs from the New Kingdom Dynasties 18-20. They tended to create their pretty and sometimes very ornate hair adornments with glazed pottery {often in white}, jasper, or alabaster and these were worn to show a person's rank in society or their authority level. By the 1600's, women of any age could be seen wearing ribbons and bows created from fabric strips that were often woven in with other bits of yarn or string and then knotted into their hair.

Women would normally try to coordinate these hair ribbons with their beautiful dresses. Here in the U.S. in the 1940's, women began doting the latest hair fashion trend- fascinators!  They were basically tiny hats that translated into ornamental headpieces that fit on the head like a headband or sometimes a small comb. These pretty hair adornments were decorated with things like flowers, beads, and feathers.

Today, hair accessories have really come to mean a wide variety of clips, barrettes, hairbands, and other unique hair tools that have made all types of hair styles possible. I love that there are some neat tools out there that will allow even those of us that are sometimes hair-styling challenged like myself, to be a master at super cute trends ;)

I love how well these clips are designed and with no metal, you aren't going to hurt your scalp, hair, or head! I can sometimes get headaches with clips that are similar and it's normally because of the poor design and bulky, poky metal that's on the clip :/ This design from PoniLox is a cinch to use too- you simply open it right up by pulling the top of the clip in the opposite direction and then snap it right into place by stretching it gently over the end!

The elastic in the PoniLox Twist also allows for the barrette to easily pivot and twist, which means you can make a wide variety of hair looks. The best part about this neat hair tool is that it doesn't leave any creases either- when it's time  to take down your look be ready to be surprised: there won't be the usual tale-tale signs that barrettes and clips tend to leave behind. These are currently on sale at ponilox.com for just under $9 each and that makes them super affordable as well!

I really like the pretty tortoiseshell design on this hair accessory from PoniLox and it never hurts to have a couple of good staple colors for all your different looks and outfits right?! ;) This version of Twist barrette is the same as the black one reviewed above, however the beautiful tortoiseshell design brings it up a notch and really changes the look of the barrette. I'd say really that the only drawback to these clips are that they are mostly designed for medium-length to longer hair and they may not work as well for shorter hair styles.  

Often times, you might pay more for designs like this clip in tortoiseshell but this one from PoniLox is the same great sale price at ponilox.com at just under $9! These cute and stylish hair accessories would make an excellent gift for any chica of any age and at this price you can score a couple for yourself as well ;) Plus- they don't cause pain...even while wearing them all day.
