Seven Facts You Never Knew About Hair Clip | hair clip

A hair clip, also referred to as a hair tie, clip, barrette or slip, is a small clasp for attaching hair to the head. They are most often made of plastic or metal and occasionally feature fabric for decoration. This article outlines how to care for the hair clips.

These devices are a must have for any fashion-forward woman's wardrobe, especially when attending a formal event or party where she needs to wear a fancy hairstyle. When choosing a hair clip it is important to look great with the chosen outfit. The right hair clip can enhance an outfit and provide an elegant finish to a hairstyle. Look for one that compliments the style and length of your hairstyle.

Short hair clips are available in many different materials. Sterling silver, gold and some high quality plastic are popular with fashionistas who wish to sport an edgier look. Sterling silver clips look great with short curly hairstyles, whereas gold does not look good with a short hairstyle. Plastic ones tend to fall off during hot weather and do not look as good with long hair as metal ones. Metal and plastic are also much less comfortable than barrettes.

To look chic and fashionable with any hair color, match the hair clip to the natural colors in the outfit. Dark haired women should wear silver clips to give their hair a classy look, while brunettes can wear gold ones to draw attention to their beautiful eyes. For natural colors it is best to get clips that match the hair best, such as black hair, light brown or even peach.

Barrettes, which are often used in hair clips to hold back hair, are made of a high quality metal called alligator clip. They are strong and durable, and often have intricate designs. These types are often used by African American women who are looking for a sleek modern look.

A new trend in hair clip accessories is Instgram, a social media website where people can share images and stories using short posts, also known as “instants”. A popular Instagram account for African American women is “@ajcafrican”, which is used to share pictures from special events, hair styles and pictures of the latest trends in color. If you are searching for a unique clip to wear to a concert or to a wedding this season, look for a “ribbon” style with an elegant and chic finish. Many women who use Instgram to share their favorite looks on instgram have also created their own blog to document their adventures on the site, and more:
