In combs, barrettes, bandeaux and other accessories there are many varieties, and a judicious selection is of no small importance in the general effect of the hairdressing. Too ornate or too numerous ones are in bad taste and detract from, rather than add to, the beauty of the coiffure. The large hairpins of shell with the tops inlaid with gold filigree or set with brilliants are very attractive and modest ornaments. Two or three of these may be used at the sides of the coiffure and prove of very effective service as well as a decoration. The erstwhile popular side-comb is entirely out of use.
