If you have thick curly hair, it can be prone to frizz in the summer time. However, there are lots of great hair accessories that make the most of thick curly hair. They cut frizz and look gorgeous too!
Hair accessories for thick, curly hair will play to your hair’s strengths to eliminate frizz. After all, thick curly hair means that you can wear some accessories that others can’t. The thick texture means that the ‘teeth’ of large barettes and combs can get a grip. Barettes and combs can tend to fall out of very fine hair. At the same time, you need to find accessories which aren’t too small. Some small barettes or hair clips can’t hold very thick hair. Read on for my top picks of the best hair accessories for frizzy hair.
Wide Hair Band or ‘Alice’ Band
A wide hair band, sometimes called an ‘Alice Band’, after the hair style of Alice in Wonderland, is brilliant for summer. It keeps hair out of your face and makes the most of thick curly hair by gently gathering it, emphasizing its volume. With this style, use a frizz eliminating mouse or serum for curly hair. A headband also looks great with a ponytail. It also keeps you cool!
Remember when banana combs were all the rage in the eighties? You can still find them at a good hair supply store, and they work great with thick, curly hair. The plastic combs gather hair together, allowing it to fall in a soft ponytail at the back. It is a great way to show off thick curly hair. Lightly mist the pony tail with water and scrunch to keep frizz away while adding body. This hair accessory combines the refinement of a pulled back style with the tasselled look of a pony tail.
Tiny Butterfly Clips
You might think that tiny hair clips are made for fine hair, but people with thick, curly hair can wear them too. Gather very small sections of hair around your face. Twist the section while pulling it away from your face and secure with a butterfly clip. This gives a refined look which frames your face, and keeps frizz away.
A summer baseball cap looks fun and sporty. Pull your hair back in a pony tail and put on a cute hat. Allow the pony tail to fall through the opening in the back of the hat. Frame your face by allowing a few tendrils of hair to fall free.
Hair accessories for frizzy hair come in a whole range of styles and colors, suitable for a variety of occasions. For instance, a headband with delicate rhinestones is perfect for evening, whereas a sporty ballcap is ideal for walking the dog. The hair accessories for curly thick hair listed above can be a real life saver on hot summer days.
