Hair combs are accessories for the hair that look like combs with a thick edge on the top. They come in a variety of styles. For example, the edge can be coloured to blend in or to stand out. From casual events to formal dinners or dances, hair combs can fit any occasion. With a few steps, a hair comb can enhance a hairstyle or add to an updo.

    The Bun

  1. 1

    Gather it up. Gather hair into a low ponytail, but don't fasten it.

  2. 2

    Twirl it. Start twisting the hair close to the base of the ponytail. It will start to coil. Wrap the coil around the centre of the ponytail.

  3. 3

    Tuck it up. Tuck the ends into the back of the bun.

  4. 4

    Finish it up. Push the hair bun against the head. While it's flattened, insert the comb at the top of the bun. The comb should be against the head. Wiggle the comb while inserting it to catch the bun hair and to hold it down.

    Ponytail Tuck

  1. 1

    Put it up. Make a ponytail, keeping the hair loose. Fasten it with a ponytail holder.

  2. 2

    Part it. Make a pocket directly above the ponytail holder in the centre. Separate the hair into two sections. Tuck the hair into the pocket.

  3. 3

    Tuck the comb. Push the hair comb into the part between the two sections, directly over the ponytail holder. The comb should be flat against the head.

    French Twist

  1. 1

    Pull it back. Pull the hair back into a low ponytail without putting in a ponytail holder.

  2. 2

    Start twisting. Twist the hair, starting at the base of the ponytail. Twist it upwards.

  3. 3

    Find the hole. The twist forms a hole in the centre. Tuck the ends into the pocket at the end.

  4. 4

    Slide in the comb. Push the hair comb in from top to bottom. Rock the comb back and forth to get all the hair to fasten to the head.

Tips and warnings

  • Use bobby pins or small clips to fasten any loose hair or fly-aways.
