The range of hair accessories to glam up your styles this season is endless! We’ve all seen the XXL hair slide, the zig-zag headband and bow slides, now it’s time to try the sleek side slide for that sweet and innocent look. Choose the right hair slide
. None of us can live without hair accessories. Whether you’re into the classic headband, bohemian or retro styles, versions with diamantes or feathers, bows or studs, there is something to suit every hair type and every style! But for the sweet and innocent look, opt for the flat, smooth slide in understated colours. For an ultra-trendy, preppy look, avoid anything that stands out too much, and forget any bling-bling. How do I wear it?
Two options. First of all, on straight hair. Style your hair then create a side parting. Pull a large piece of hair from the front to just above your ear, ensuring it curves nicely round your head, then secure with the slide. You can also wear the side slide on slightly wavy hair, again with a side parting. Use wide-barrelled curling tongs to create subtle curls. Then insert your slide to stop hair from the thicker side from getting in your eyes. Just like you did when you were at school! What should I wear it with?
With this hairstyle, avoid leather and outrageously short skirts! You need to match your clothes with your sweet and innocent hairstyle. Go for a preppy style with sensible pieces! Try Peter Pan collar blouses, pleated skirts, waisted shirts and smart slip-on shoes. Ready for back to school!
