Although we have collections for Thick Hair and Long Hair separately, there is an overlap of the two where many of our hair accessories are perfect for both! The most important thing about styling long or thick hair is to use hair accessories with long and wide teeth to be able to grasp a large amount of hair in a firm and secure way.
THE BEST HAIR ACCESSORIES FOR LONG THICK HAIR

CREATING A HAIR BUN STYLE
If you are looking to create a hair bun, there are also a variety of hair accessories that you can do that with, that will not damage your long thick hair! The Small Square Hair Claws and Large Square Hair Claws are crafted with Long Thick hair in mind. This is shown by their long curved teeth that perfectly work to secure your up-do.
Firstly you need to twist your hair into a bun (this can be a low bun or a bun on top of your head) then secure around the bun with as many Square Hair Claws as you need. Two Large or Three Small are usually enough depending on the length and thickness of your hair. The Two Prong Thick Hair Claws and the 2x Long Teeth Hair Claws from the Essentials Collection can also be used in a similar way to secure a bun and create this look.
STYLING YOUR HAIR WITH COMBS

Alternatively, the Small Thick Hair Side Comb and the Large Thick Hair Side Comb were specifically designed to secure thicker hair types with the waved teeth design for comfort and a firm grip. The 12cm French Pleat Comb is another perfect comb for your long thick hair type.
STYLING YOUR HAIR WITH BARRETTES
When choosing a Hair Barrette for Long and Thick hair types, we recommend choosing a curved or arched shape barrette which holds more hair. We have a variety of shapes from Narrow Arched, to Arched Barrettes and Wide Arched Barrettes. Depending on the thickness of your hair you can decide which arch shape will best hold your hair thickness. The thicker your hair, the wider the arch should be.
THE SECRET TO CHOOSING THE RIGHT HAIR ACCESSORIES
We are going to let you into a little secret when it comes to choosing which hair accessories will perfectly secure your hair. The secret is to look at not only the shape and the teeth, but the quality of your accessories to make your decision.
Especially when styling Long Thick hair, cheap lower-end accessories will be more likely to snap and break when they are regularly stretched to hold a large volume of hair. However, at Tegen Accessories, our French collections including our French Handmade and French Essentials collections are both made with the most durable and robust mechanisms with strong steel springs and a firm grip. This is why they are ideal for securing even the thickest of hair.
The French Handmade Collection goes one step further being fully made from a flexible material called Cellulose Acetate which in itself is made to bend and accommodate a volume of hair. This is when quality certainly outweighs quantity.
