Do you ever look in your closet and see loads of clothes, but nothing you actually want to wear? This is very common. Most of us have a lot of clothes to choose from but we're still frustrated every morning when it's time to get ready for the day.
The same problem can apply to accessories, and hair accessories in particular. Because accessories are often a last thought when putting an outfit together, you can find you are always reaching for the same conservative hair clips you wear every day in black or tortoiseshell, just because it "goes with everything." And the more interesting accessories you own are left in the drawer again, unworn.
By thinking a little bit about how you like to dress when you buy your hair clips, you can over time build a wardrobe of hair accessories that work with your existing clothes and better reflect your personal style.
Step 1: Purchase with care.Before you buy, think about how you will style your hair with your new clip. Is it a style you are comfortable with already? Most of us like to wear our hair up the same way every day because it gives us confidence that we can predict that our hair will "look okay" like that, and we like the way it feels for us in that style. Choosing a clip that is very different from your normal habit may end up unworn.
Think about how the design works with the clothes you already own. Is it a colour and style that you can wear with at least three outfits you have? If so, then it will be a successful addition to your collection that you will have plenty of opportunities to wear and enjoy.
