(These pictured are some of my personal Sidewinders :))
For those of you who don't know what Sidewinders are here is a snippet from hairholders.com "the beginnings of this business started as an idea while Susan Lowry, owner, was camping/RVing. She saw colorful twisted wind spinners on many RVs and thought, “Gee. That sure would look cute in the hair.” Of course she was right…..they do look pretty awesome in the hair. And that was the start of Sidewinder Hair holders.
Located in El Dorado Hills, California, Sidewinder is dedicated to providing you with a unique, fun, colorful hair holder at an affordable price to use when you style girls’ hair. Think of us as the hair beads and barrette alternative.
So whether it’s a curly hair hairstyle, hairstyle medium length, girls long hairstyles, short hairstyles, school hairstyle, all the cute girls’ hairstyles look better with Sidewinder Hair Holders." Copied from hairholders.com
Hair Beads Alternative
Another excellent advantage to beads is you can easily take the holder out of the hair, even when you use the holders on small braids with a bead to secure the holder! Also, be sure to check out our video and hairstyle galleries to see all the cute girls hairstyles which do not require an elastic band or bead at the end.
Sidewinder Hairholders are excellent for hairstyles with braided cornrows, to use in place of hairstyles with beads or hairstyles with barrettes, or to use in place of dreadlocks with beads.
Actually, the ways you can use these holders to create cute girls hairstyles are endless. The look you create depends on how you choose to wear them. This girls hair accessory is so different from what is currently on the market, I’ve actually had people come up to me and ask, “What is that in your hair? It’s so cool!!”
And you can use them in all hair textures and hair lengths, including girls long hairstyles, hairstyles for medium length, short hair, natural hair, cornrows, braided hairstyles. We do recommend with fine hair you add an elastic band at the end.
The hair holders come in three sizes, 1″, 2″ and 3″, which allows for even more hairstyle versatility. Our 1″ holders are especially good for pinning back bangs.
Since the holder comes in 25 colors, you can match just about any outfit. And each holder has two pieces, which allows you to make them multicolored. Make your own custom two-color combinations. For example, why not show team spirit by wearing your school colors or your favorite sports team’s colors on one holder." Copied from hairholders.com
