They say it's all in the details and when it comes to elegant women's hairstyles the right hair accessory can make all the difference. The problem is some women don't know which accessories to use to create the right look and end up missing the mark. Here's a quick guide to choosing the right accessory for the look you want.
Vintage hair clips are hugely popular and a sure fire bet for those who are accessory shy. A 1920's inspired hair pin can be used to pull one side of wavy women's hairstyles back or act as the crowing glory when several are run above the hairline like a tiara. This look works for formal occasions or to compliment a more casual but vintage style dress.
Need the perfect accompaniment to that awesome sun dress? Nothing says summer like colorful flower hair accessories. You can go bold with a large white rose or fuchsia orchid and really make heads turn. For those who like their flower hair accessories on the subtle side try adding one or two petite orchid or peony hair clips to a low lying chignon.
If you're looking for something that is out of the ordinary and makes updos a snap try using hair sticks. There are dozens of women's hairstyles that can be created with the use of hair sticks. These work both for casual outfits or you can use a pair of ornately decorated ones for an elegant event. It takes a little practice but once you have the hang of it you can create sophisticated updos quickly and wear fabulous hair accessories all at the same time.
