Hair jewelry and decor morphs through innovative and yet repetitive phases. After all, there are only so many ways of attaching something to the head: combs, bandeaus, hair bands, tiaras, barrettes and hair pins. Just in the last 2 years hair bands (Edwardian era, 40s, 50s and 60s) return, bandeaus (20s, 60s), tiaras (Edwardian, 50s ) have all make appearances.
Todays combs are usually plastic and small. Maybe a floral gewgaw or a bit of metal is all they have. Take a look at these Edwardian and Victorian combs to see exuberance combined with skill!
