The Hair Accessories You’ll Need This Fall 2014/Winter 2015

Side part with Bobby Pin

Gently brush or comb your hair into the desired position

So we left off last week discussing some of the hairstyles for women and girls for fall 2014/ winter 2015. This week we will see what hair accessories you need to make these styles work!

Lets start with the side part. To get the perfect part, you can use a sectioning comb (rat-tailed comb) to part your hair in the perfect manner. If you don’t have a sectioning comb, any comb should be able to do the trick. Gently brush or comb your hair into the desired position. Using a comb or brush with closely spaced teeth will give the sleekest look. Fasten your hair with two bobby pins crossed in an x shape to hold firmly in place. You can also put in a fashion bobby pin with flowers, pearls or any number of decorations on it, or for small girls, try a flower hair clip for a youthful look!

Another style we mentioned was the classic braid. Braids can be done in either of two ways. You can part the hair into sections and begin braiding right away which gives a more sophisticated look. For a younger look (and an easier method) first gather the hair into a ponytail holder and then divide the hair and start braiding. For young children who have a hard time sitting still, this method is a MUST!!
In addition, braided hair accessories such as braid hair bands and plaited headwraps are another awesome hair accessory to capture the look! Now, even when you are having a rushed morning, you can still look your best!

For the final look of 2013/14 we mentioned the messy pony. If you are trying to achieve this look, you are best off with a hair twister that is not too tight. If you normally use a small pony holder, go with something a roomier that slips a little! Another great option is a scrunchie pony holder. For the cooler weather try something like velour or velvet in a darker color. If your hair is layered, then this hair style will also require some bobby hair pins to keep those wisps off your face!

As a take-off on the messy pony, you can also try a banana clip or jaw clip for the same effect.

Have fun playing with your hairstyles this fall/winter. The options are endless!

What are the trending hairstyles for Fall 2014/Winter 2015?

Braids this season are all about taking the ordinary braid and bringing it to the extra-ordinary!

It’s that time of year again…the changing of the fashion seasons. With fall just about upon us, lets see what’s trending in hair styles for fall 2014/Winter 2015. This week we will focus on the hairstyles themselves, and next week we will take a closer look at the hair accessories for women and girls that make this all possible.
One big trend that we are seeing this season is the dramatic side part. Past seasons have seen this part in a less dramatic style – parted closer to center of the head, however for this season, we are seeing it more side-swept. Closer to the ear and very sleek. This is a great hair style for medium to long hair styles and is nice because you do not need to cut your hair for it – leaving you with many options for how to style your hair this season.
Another trend we are seeing in all it’s glory is the classic braid! Braids, like we discussed here are all over this season. When you think braids, what do you think of? Two youthful braids at the side of the head tied up in hair bows? Or a more mature version of one braid down your back? For Braids 2014/2015 think again! Braids this season are all about taking the ordinary braid and bringing it to the extra-ordinary! Try braiding your hair like a headband (or just cheat with a store bought hair band that looks like a braid!). Another nice style is lots of small braids coming from the crown of your head and leading towards the back, or use that youthful two braids in a more sophisticated manner by having them start a little further back on your head and add a stylish headband with diamond studs.
I am sure you will all be happy to hear that the pony is back! Much like the “messy” bun of 2013, the pony this year is seen pulled back low in a carefree way. If you think that it is easy to achieve this look, think again! Sometimes getting the right casual look is harder than you think! This look can be achieved with a wider hair elastic, or scrunchie and looks amazing with a center part.
The most important thing this season is to use your individuality to combine and make the most amazing styles that look good on YOU!
Have fun with your hair this season and enjoy!

The Cocktail Hat – What is it Exactly?

cocktailhatFor those of you who do not know what a cocktail hat is – it’s a small brimless dress hat that is worn simply for style since this hat does not provide Hair Coverage at all. The base of the hat can be found in a few variations such as a tear drop shape which allows it to sit comfortably on ones head or a flat base. They usually have flowers, feathers and such other designs and embellishments which makes it dressy and fashionable. In addition, some come with a net hanging over which droops down over ones face to provide an extra special look.

How did the Cocktail Hat come about?

In the 1930’s women took great interest in wearing daytime hats. However, these weekday hats did not suit their needs when they were looking to go to fancy affairs such as cocktail parties, tea dances, etc. Therefore, the designers of the time came out with the cocktail hat which is more appropriate for dress of higher class. Today, Cocktail Hats are worn by women all over, especially by Royalty. It makes a great fascinator and hair accessory for a Wig and Hair on a special occasion. Cocktail hats can be found in white worn by a bride as well as in all different colors for any special occasion. Some have tall embellishments for those looking to provide height and some are small and flat.

So if you’re looking for an extra little something to dress up your outfit you know exactly what you need! Just remember, if you are looking for a Dress Hat to provide head coverage you should try and stick to a cloche or other kind of Hat.

Camo, Camo, read all about it – Army Print is the Raid this Season!

cap-army-allFor those of you who are not yet aware, the Army print is definitely the raid this season – people are going crazy for it! Take a look around and you’ll see it on children’s clothing, accessories school bags and more as well as on Women’s head covers, clothing, handbags and of course the list goes on. The reason of course is that it is bold, original and a new look.

Have you ever wondered why this camouflage print stands for the army? How come the military uniform is made up of this camouflage print? The answer is simple. When soldiers are at war or carrying out a specific task they don’t want people to see them. Therefore, they wear a uniform with a camouflage print so that they won’t be noticed and kind of just blend in with the scenery, which is why the print is made up of earth tones such as greens, browns and tans. Over time this camouflage print was improved time and time again for the ultimate camouflage look.

Of course, when we take this army print to our head covers and accessories we only take the print not the camouflage colors because we have nothing to hide and are not looking to look like the trees or earth around us. You can find the camouflage print on Soft Wide Head wraps or caps in Pink, Blue, Orange and more! So go ahead and try the new look – you’ll love it!
