Professional New Yorkers Have Taken Over The Low Slung Half Back Style

During my visit to The Big Apple last month I couldn't get away from this style ...

Last month I did my obsessive hair style research in New York City, rising at dawn, haunting Starbucks at rush-hour to see what styles professional women in mid-town Manhattan were sporting.

There was one overwhelming answer:

The Low Slung Half-Back.

Even in a million-degree heat and a bajillion percent humidity, the hair was down, but gracefully pulled back in this loose, easy style.

Small claws ruled this style, but Libby has been a firm favourite of also using our Long Skinny Barrettes to create a smooth profile and avoiding that bunched-up-at-the-back look.

Notably absent from the streets of New York were quiffs and boufs. No backcombing anywhere.

The Bump is yesterday's look. You have been warned.

Libby made you a styling video to show you how fast and easy this new up-and-coming style is to create with her 3 top recommended clips.

Styling Video: New Ways To Wear Side Combs

Inspiration For New Ways To Wear Your Side Combs

You can get stuck in a rut sometimes, always wearing your hair accessories in the same style day in and day out.

This week I wanted to show you 3 different ways you can style your hair using side combs.

Here I use our French handmade Round Edge Combs.

This is a comb we particularly recommend for our customers who have thick hair because of the thicker shape of its teeth, but it works very well in most hair types.
