Written by Cynthia Guerrero. Posted in Hairstyle

Every woman has dreamt of having long, sleek, Rapunzel-like hair at least once in her life. Some give up this dream because long hair is difficult to grow and requires plenty of maintenance. However, those who do have the time, patience and resources to let their hair grow long have many benefits to gain. Not only does long hair look amazing, but also offers huge styling opportunities, because you can experiment with different updos without ever getting bored of your locks. However, you will have to stock up on hair accessories, because without them there’s nothing much you can do. Simple, straight hair or relaxed beach waves can work for a while, but accessories are the ones that can give your locks a unique touch and help you stand out. Here are the key items that you have to have in your collection.

The best accessories for long hair

First of all, every long-haired girl needs her hair bands. Whether you want to make a pony tail, an elegant updo or a fish braid, they’re an absolute must and you have to have them in large quantities, because we all know how elastics and bobby pins tend to disappear. If you want to keep your hair looking healthy for as long as possible, you should avoid cheap hair bands, especially the ones that have a metal part. Repeated use makes your hair breakage prone and, even if you can’t see any negative effects at first, prolonged use of harsh accessories causes hair to be fragile. To be safe, you can use gentler alternatives, such as ribbons. They look very delicate and feminine, they don’t cause any kind of damage to your hair and they don’t change its shape either. Needless to say, they make it look like you put a lot of effort into styling your hair, when in fact it only took you a few seconds.

 

Secondly, you will need colorful bows and pins to accessorize, not just to keep the hair in place. Bows are perfect, because they help you achieve an effortless, yet charming look, no matter what hairstyle you’re going for. Look for rosette ribbon wholesale UK if you prefer girly looks. For example, you can use the ribbon to tie your hair at the back. Also, you can take a longer ribbon strand and braid it along with your hair. The traditional braid can look a bit too plain, but if you add a bit of ribbon, you can give your hairstyle a charming boho look. Hair clips are another must-have accessory. There’s nothing you can really change about large clips, which mainly have a practical purpose, but you can definitely have a lot of fun with small snap clips, the ones used to hold a piece of hair on the side. Forget about the simple metal design with a 90s feel. To make your hairstyle more creative, look for dainty clips or make your own accessories using cheap wholesale items. There are plenty of online tutorials with images so, with a bit of patience and the right tools, anyone can become their own designer.
