All of us tend to think that hair accessories are a new concept, but you will be amazed to know that this concept has flourished under the roof of ancient times. However, barrettes and hair clips are as old as humans. In the ancient period, women used to adorn their hair with basic hairpins that were made of natural materials like wood that help in holding their long hairs on their backs.
Let’s see a few instances of ancient hair accessories that were practiced during olden times:
Native Americans – They used bones and feathers to create beautiful headdresses.
Ancient Africans – They preferred beads and shells to make their headgears.
Ancient Greeks and Romans – They used flowers and foliage to create amazing hair jewelry like crowns and a tiara.
We should be thankful to our forefathers for introducing these hair jewels that help the women to look angelic.
