How to decorate your hair with hairpins so that your hairstyle lasts a long time
In order for the twister to firmly fix the styling, the length of the hair should be no less than up to 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 cascade, that is, they have different lengths and it is very difficult to put them in one bundle. So that they do not climb out of the hairstyle, you need to stab them with clips or stealth.
Sophist Twist is convenient in that its ears can be twisted or tied after the hairstyle is ready, which provides a more secure fit.
The French twister has a tapering mesh tube design. It helps to create an elegant shell and secure it securely with or without studs.
Hair accessories called heagami come from the Land of the Rising Sun. Their name is not accidentally similar to the word «origami». The strands, like paper, are folded into a certain structure — a bundle, a roll, a shell — using two metal plates with a slight elastic effect. They are covered with fabric, so they do not come into direct contact with the hair. Heagami variants are made in all shapes and colors. Fur or lace patterns are used on special occasions.
Heagami, unlike bumpits, does not add volume to the styling. However, with the help of this device, you can make a stylish bun at the back of the head, ideal for both everyday use and for going out.
For this you need:
open the plates, thread the hair between them;
straighten the strands well so that the hairstyle is neat;
stretch the plates to the tips;
wind the strands on the plates;
press the ends of the hairpins — and it will curl itself into a bun.
Hair ornaments with the unusual name “bumpit” turn even the simplest everyday hairstyle into a work of art. They look great on loose curls.
Bumpit — a headband for placement on the back of the head and creating a neat bun. It was first used in the 1960s. Small teeth securely fix the strands.
In just a few seconds, you get an elegant hairstyle, like the most famous Hollywood movie stars.
The main types of decorative headbands for hair
For several years in a row, hair ornaments have been decorating the heads of many celebrities and Instagram bloggers.
