longer past my waist it is still longer then mid-back and
very long by any standards. You guys also know I worked
in Restaurant management for 17 years and no matter
where you live long hair has to be covered and put up.
It was fun when I was younger for I loved trying new "do's"
and got really into it and if I was in a rush I could just toss
it in a pony tail but then when I got older and my Career
advanced and I went from casual dinning to more upscale
places I needed it to look classy not cute and add some
style. I could also no longer get by with a simple pony tail.
Since Diva is in my blood and I thought my hair was a fashion
statement I would never dream of cutting it and working 70
hours a week and being a single Mom at the time I just didn't have
time for the saloon to have them give me an Up-Do when ever
I needed a new look. I grew dependent on hair accessories and
not long after that my dependency grew into an obsession.
I am no longer working but I still have my collection and still
pick up items that look like they have my name written all over
it when I see it!
I have Banana Clips and Scrunchies dating back
to the eighties and silk scarves and leather headbands and
handmade clips and berets and even nets and pins from
the last few years or so. One time I went into a store and
they had a huge selection of their hair items on clearance
for 90 percent off and I bought 80 dollars worth and sent
John back to buy everything I had missed a few hours later.
Right outside of my bathroom I have a huge basket filled with
items and two boxes under the sink and that is only the items
I use on a regular basis. I have even more in a large tub in
my closet. I think this makes me an expert in hair accessories
and swear on all that is good and hairy I have seen it all!
I may not own it all, but I have seen it and the only reason
I don't have it is, have you priced a Barrett now a days?
Just a simple metal barrette can cost you 5 bucks, add
some pizazz or style and you are draining your bank account
or drying up your rainy day stash. Depressing! So when I find
a place that has style, selection, unique products at an
affordable price I jump on it like Garfield on Lasagna!
I found a store called "Cover Your Hair" that has
all of that, and even a larger selection than I had ever
dreamed off and all at affordable prices! The have it all
from clips, to Barrett's, pony holders, headbands, nets, scarves,
bandannas, clips, ethnic, ( breathe breathe, gotta catch my breath)
and even hats and shawls and Bandannas. If it goes on your
head they have it. What's even better is the price! I could not
find anything over 20 bucks and that was the hats. For hair
accessories I could not find a thing over 12 dollars. Truly
remarkable. The had a whole section devoted to items
under $5.00 and some of the pieces are exceptional! I fell
in love with a beautiful black velvet headband with silver stones
that could be won dressed up or dressed down. Either way
it will be the first thing people notice when they see you.
They have over 10 pages of sale items alone and sets that
offer several items in a particular color or theme that
are perfect for times when you have a stunning outfit and
are not sure how to do your hair. With a selection at your
finger tips you can pick and choose what tickles your fancy
or change it up at the last minute so your husband can
wait a little bit longer by the front door wearing a grimace and
glaring at his watch!
I was sent a Tichels also known as Mitpachat that is
made from cotton and 36 square inches. It is lite weight, with
no fringe and cotton. A perfect way to take care of my hair
when working around the house or working in the garden. I
was also send a plaid headband with a flower on it that is
super cute and would look just as great with a dress as it
would with jeans and a t-shirt. Both products are superbly
made and light weight so they do not weigh you down and
are excellent quality. There is no places that protrude so
that it would end up snagging your hair or tangling so you
have to struggle to remove them and unlike some of the
other headbands I have used this one fits and give just
enough where it is comfortable and not squishing my
head. You have no idea how I hate that! I could get lost
for hours on the styles and it doesn't matter what you
are wearing they have something to match! Cover your hair
is truly a place for all your needs and have more specials
and deals then any store I have ever seen. Right now
if you spend $100.00 you get a free gift and that is on
top of the free headband with any order and THAT is
on top of their already low prices! Whatever it is you
are looking for, Cover Your Hair has you Covered!
