Make a statement by wearing a bow in your hair. There are so many ideas when it comes to a bow. You have several styles to choose from including a pinwheel, a layered bow, a pony O, and many more. You can also choose from several types of material depending on the mood you are in or the mood you would like to create. Bows can be made of satin, velvet, lace, and even duct tape! Bows can also be used in conjunction with other hair ornaments.
A nice headband can complement your wardrobe choice of the day or can be used just to keep your flyaways out of your face. It is a very versatile ornament and can be paired with any style of dress. Whether you are dressed for the gym or a night out on the town, a headband can make your hair look great. It doesn't matter what type of hair you have either. They can be used with curly or straight and with or without bangs.

A comb is an accessory that looks just like a comb on the end but also has a thick edge on top. The top is usually decorated in some fashion. Some hair combs can be made up to really stand out when placed in someone's hair. The comb is functional too as it will hold hair in place. You can use it with a just about any style: a French twist or even a ponytail.
There are all sorts of clips on the market. Jaw clips are very popular and come in a range of styles and sizes. They range in style from very plain to those adorned with diamonds and other gems. The clip is basically an alternative to a hair tie, which is used for keeping up longer hair. Most jaw clips make for good casual occasion hair ornaments, but some of the more decorative versions will work in more formal settings.
Barrettes are a more subtle accessory than many others. They are used for gathering, clipping or fastening hair to hold it in a certain style, a ponytail for example. Barrettes come in various sizes and some can be very plain while others may be somewhat more decorative. They can be used with all lengths and are, for the most part invisible. They can add a nice touch to an already great hairstyle.
Whether you make your own or buy ones already completed with the right accessory to match your attire you are sure to get a beautiful look that many others will notice!
