How to Choose the Perfect Hair Accessory for Your Hairstyleby Safan Khan Content Writer
There is historical evidence of hair accessories made from animal bones, twigs, stones, shells and so on to signify status, celebration, and mourning. Hair accessories have often been used in the Victorian and Tudor eras to symbolise the political zeitgeist of the times – whether through shrouds that cover the hair or through elaborate hairstyles and wigs. Trends in women hair accessories are more keenly followed because of the nostalgic feel of little girls being dressed by their mothers in cute dresses, clips and bows. Wedding is another life event when a lot of focus is given to accessorising the hair in beautiful traditions, culturally passed down from generation to generation, all over the world.
Hair accessories are the ultimate romance-inducing artefacts – imagine a yesteryear Bollywood movie where the hero places a flower in the heroine’s hair. Hair accessories also need to be given due consideration in terms of the kind of feelings they evoke and the stories they tell. Fast forward to the 90s and Y2K where maximalism led to wearing over-the-top clips and barrettes inspired by pop culture, even going as far as covering the entire hairline with them. With conversations around sustainability, accessory designers are hard-pressed to rethink how to use materials without generating the demand for new resources and to give due credit to craft and artisans. This harbingered the existing era of making beautiful things out of waste and ornamenting it with different craft-led finishes and embellishments.
