Accessories should not just end with our dresses or neck pieces and arm candies. As a naturalista, you know the importance of taking your glam up a notch by accessorizing, especially on days when the hair just would not cooperate.
Now don’t get me wrong, I think our curls are pretty just the way they are, but there is nothing wrong with adding a little oomph here and there, right? Hair accessories come in many varieties and as naturals we are spoiled for choice.
These are my top five ways to accessorize curls:
Flowers are one of my favorite accessories to add an air of femininity and playfulness to my coils. Sometimes I will thread a fresh rose through my strands or maybe let I will let it rest on the crown of my ear. At other times, I will clip down a well-crafted hair brooch to add a gentle touch of elegance. Either way I love that flowers add a captivating lightness to my coils.
Lots of naturalistas like to refer to themselves as queens, and rightly so! Lucky for us, there are lots of hair accessories we can use to celebrate our status. Hair bands/crowns come in all shapes and designs and are easily available online and in major retailer stores. From feather trim fascinators to beaded and bejeweled chains, we can transform into angelic bohemian beauties!
Not only do hats protect our precious coils from the harmful effects of the sun, they are a sure way to add personality to your entire outfit! There are lots of hats in the market from bowler hats to fedoras to berets; the list is endless. We are truly spoilt for choice! That said, as a coily hair . I understand that hats can cause mechanical damage to my hair, so I make sure to buy satin lined hats for an added layer of protection.
4. Turbans and Scarves
Turbans and scarves are my most practical hair accessory. I can’t tell you the number of times I have stood in front of my mirror with only three minutes to walk out the door and absolutely no idea what to do with my hair. And voila! Turbans and scarves have come to my rescue! I whip up a sassy wrap in a minute, secure it with some bobby pins, and I am ready to hit the streets.
