    Default Hair accessories for shorter hair?

    So I've seen sooooo many gorgeous hair forks and things listed on here, but my hair isn't near long enough yet to actually use one.
    What are y'alls go-to store for things like headbands and hair clips? If it works in thicker hair that's even better
    I'm trying to find more stuff that's appropriate for an adult but not super boring.

    I loved claw clips right up until I could wear a bun with a fork, and that was waist/hip (hip to be comfortable). Claw clips are hair friendly and much better than elastics IMO.

    I need to get more of these! I just have one, and I think I would've been better off getting a different style.
    I think a lot of the elastics I have are just too small for my hair. I've never had an elastic break on me, but it tends to pull my scalp and hurt, and that cannot be good for it.

    Growing out from chin length Threddies was a lifesaver for headbands, ties etc, as were claw clips and barettes.
    You can get great deals locally, at Claires, at Amazon, or really pretty/unique/hair safe clips from PinswithPersonality.

    As you grow, you can try buns as half ups, then add in the rest of your hair.
    Buy a few hair toys you can wear for the half ups, but grow into as well for center held buns etc

    Lilla Rose has lots of styling options for any length hair; feel free to message Tracy for any questions you may have for sizes etc.

    Bling it up and enjoy every stage

    No tension is not great for the hair. Avoid that at all costs, you'd be better off wearing it loose rather than pulling it back tightly. I wore my hair down until about APL. There is really no real need to put it up before that stage.

    Good to know. I'm just starting to read about protective styles and whatnot, it's a whole world of stuff and I'm not sure when to start getting into it. Knowing I've got a few months at least where I can leave it down no worries is relaxing.

    All very helpful! I'm taking notes and will start looking into related Etsy stores

    Thanks guys.
    Two of the hair products I bought less than a week ago have already broken (they're sending me replacements, but still) so it's making me think it's worth the money to get some nicer stuff.

    When I buy claw clips I always like to make sure there are no sharp edges on the claw part (where the mold seams are). If it's one you really like but it has sharp edges, you can sand them down or use an x-acto knife to pare them off.

    THIS!!
    I've seen so many beautiful claws and clips and such at regular stores, but when you run your fingers over the parts, there are snags, burs, little extra sharp pieces from the injection mold plastic sticking out or whatever...
    Always double check what your putting in your hair!
