I'm not really one for doing much with my hair, I tend to just straighten it when I go out and very rarely put my hair up. However a while ago I had a friends wedding coming up and I wanted to do something a bit different with my hair, I have long hair but it is very thick even though I have it thinned out so putting it up can be tricky and also uncomfortable after a while, I decided to just put half my hair up and buy something sparkly to put in it. I visited a website that I used when purchasing bits for my own wedding and found the Claire Flower Crystal Wedding Hair Comb, it was exactly what I was looking for, sparkly and went with my outfit perfectly, although the name states that it is a wedding comb there is no reason why you could not wear it for other occasions.
The Claire Flower Crystal Wedding Hair Comb came well packaged inside a small box just a little bigger than the comb, this prevented it from moving around too much inside the box and becoming damaged during posting. This item is basically a small silver metal hair comb with prongs of a good length and thickness. Along the top of the comb (the part you see) are two mother of pearl, crystal and diamante flowers, these are then surrounded by diamante leaves and crystal. The flowers are the main focal point of the comb but the leaves and sprigs add nicely to the overall effect.
As I have mentioned my plan was to put just half my hair up so I didn't want anything too big and heavy, I wanted to be able to put my hair up, put the comb in place and forget about it, what I liked about the Claire Flower Crystal Wedding Hair Comb was the fact that it was not too big measuring 9cm in length with the comb measuring 3cm, the comb was the perfect size, large enough to make an impact without looking over the top. Also once in place the comb was very lightweight and I could not feel it in my hair at all, it was very comfortable to wear. I also found putting the comb in place very simple, I twisted my hair up and held it in place with hair grips and then inserted the comb to give the appearance of the comb holding my hair in place, it was easy to insert all of the comb into my hair so that all you could see was the flower design along the top.
My main concern with the Claire Flower Crystal Wedding Hair Comb was how well it would stay in my hair, as I have mentioned I have thick hair so I wasn't sure if getting the comb to grip would be a problem, I didn't want something that was going to keep slipping out of my hair so I had to keep putting it back again. However this was not the case, the hair comb gripped nicely, felt secure and did not move all day, I didn't have to touch it until I took my hair down when I got home, it held extremely well.
The Claire Flower Crystal Wedding Hair Comb came from a website called The Little Things In Life, they sell a large range of hair accessories amongst other things. This particular hair comb cost me £28.00, personally I thought this was reasonably price as the product is extremely well made and of an excellent quality.
The hair comb is also very versatile, on the website it states that this would be ideal for a bride or bridesmaid, however you could wear it to any occasion where you wanted to dress up, I bought mine originally for a friends wedding but I have also since worn it when I have gone racing, particularly to the larger meetings where the dress code is more strict. I would definitely say that this is worth the money and I have got my moneys worth from it.
I have been extremely pleased with my Claire Flower Crystal Wedding Hair Comb, I still prefer not to put my hair up but when I have an occasion where I want to do something a bit different with my hair this comb allows me to do a simple style and then dress it up.
The hair comb is quick and simple to use and can be used with a range of hair styles, the small comb and long prongs makes it very versatile. Even if like me you are not very experienced with experimenting with hair styles you would be able to put this comb in your hair successfully with a simple style.
The comb is classy and the perfect size, large enough to be noticeable and make an impact without being over the top. The comb is very reasonably priced and in my opinion well worth the money. I would highly recommend the Claire Flower Crystal Wedding Hair Comb to anyone looking for a classic stylish item to put in their hair for a special occasion.
