How to decorate hair with hairpins so that the hairstyle lasts a long time
In order for the twister to firmly fix the styling, the length of the hair should be at least as long as the shoulder blades. On shorter and thinner strands, these beautiful hair ornaments do not hold well. It will be difficult if the curls are cut with a ladder or a cascade, that is, they have different lengths and it is very difficult to put them in one bundle. So that they do not get out of the hairstyle, you need to pin them with clips or invisible ones.
Sophist Twist is convenient in that its ears can be twisted or tied after the hairstyle is ready, which ensures a more reliable fixation.
The French twister has a tapered mesh tube design. It helps to create an elegant shell and securely fasten it with or without pins.
Hair accessories called heagami originate from the Land of the Rising Sun. It is no coincidence that their name is similar to the word «origami». Strands, like paper, are folded into some structure — a bundle, a roll, a shell — with the help of two metal plates with a light elastic effect. They are covered with fabric, so they do not come into direct contact with the hair. They make variants of heagami of all shapes and colors. Fur or lace models are used in special cases.
Heagami, unlike bumpits, does not add volume to the stacking. However, with the help of this device, you can make a stylish bun on the back of the head, which is ideal for both everyday use and going out into the world.
For this you need:
open the plates, pull the hair between them;
straighten the strands well so that the hairstyle is neat;
stretch the plates to the tips;
wind strands on plates;
press on the end of the pin — and it will curl itself into a bundle.
Hair ornaments with the unusual name «bump» turn even the simplest everyday hairstyle into a work of art. They look great on loose curls.
Bumpy — a headband for placing on the back of the head and creating a neat bun. It was first used in the 1960s. Small teeth reliably fix strands.
In just a few seconds, you get an elegant hairstyle, like the most famous Hollywood movie stars.
