Hair Accessories For Young Girls

Author : Ashlei Soutrey

It could be a great deal of enjoyable buying for hair accessories for your small girl. With a tiny understanding, you may choose a clip and style that could work not only for your personal taste, but that may be functional to hold her hair in place, and will have top quality workmanship that could final.

Safety of Hair Accessories: Remember, we are talking about the babies and children who are going to be wearing these. Make sure that the company you buy these from is reputable, and is testing their materials for lead and toxic materials in glue. For example, mom and owner of Bitty Bows Boutique states "it is important to make sure that all embellishments are firmly secured using a non-toxic glue, and lead free materials." On occasions, these accessories could make it to a child's mouth. We want to make sure that the parts are not going to easily come free, posing a choking hazard, or that any of the components used could make a child sick. And remember, do not leave a baby or child unattended with a hair accessory, especially during naptime or in the carseat, when they are out of vision. There could be small parts which could present a choking hazard.

Workmanship: Ribbon and material may all look the same, but how it is put together can make a huge difference in how well a hair bow holds up to child's play. Ribbon ends should always...ALWAYS be heat sealed. Inexpensive bows in the $1-2 dollar range typically are not. They may look okay in the package, but with a few times of wearing, the ribbon ends will begin to unravel. Some handmade bows are sealed with Fray Check, but again, this is not nearly as effective in permanently sealing a ribbon end with a professional heat seal. Look for embellishments that are secure, and glue that is strong. This is one situation where you often get what you pay for.

Clip Types: Dozens of types of clips are available, but not all clips will work on all types of hair. Pinch clips, or alligator clips, are the most common types, along with "French clips". However, often these clips do not hold in place very well on their own, especially if the hair is fine. If you are shopping for a toddler with fine hair, look for a clip that is completely lined with velvet. This works extremely well for holding fine hair tightly, as it provides great friction. If you are looking for a clip for a baby with tiny wispy bangs, or peach fuzz, a tiny snapping clip that has been fully lined in ribbon will surprisingly well. There are many options and details to consider when picking the type of clip.

Style: Little girls are fun to dress up! This is completely a matter of preference, but remember that hair accessories are not limited to bows. There are fun and trendy hair flowers, designer barrettes, and of course the basic hair bow, which should all be considered. If you are not a bow type of person, you do not have to cut bangs to keep the hair out of your little one's face. Opt instead for a whimsical fruit, butterfly, or character hair clip.

Whether you are looking for a simple and functional barrette, a stick on bow for your newborn, a tiny baby bow, or a girly and frilly hair clip, searching for a quality hair accessory for a baby or toddler can be a difficult task. In stores, online, in boutiques, and in discount stores, there is no shortage of options to choose from. However, the variation in pricing can make it difficult to know what you are paying for. This article aims to discuss important considerations when shopping for hair accessories for babies and children.
