  Photo by cottonbro studio on Pexels Thick hair comes with its fair share of challenges, especially when it's time to look for the right hair accessory that not only conforms to the width of the strands, but also maintains its durability. For those with luscious locks, the struggle to find a reliable and comfortable hair tie is real. Read on to discover why scrunchies are not just a fashion statement but a practical and effective solution for those with thick hair.  Gentle Hold One of the primary concerns for those with thick hair is the likeliness of damage and breakage caused by hair ties that are either too thin or too tight.

Contrasting colors in fashion are simply pairing outfits together that are the opposite of each other on the color wheel. Some of the commonly used contrasting outfit colors are red and green, blue and orange, yellow and purple, and black and white. And yes, they look good together when you pair them appropriately. Read on to discover some of the trendiest outfit combinations.

Contrasting Neutrals With a Bold Color
Pairing neutrals like black and white or gray with a bold, vibrant color creates an interesting, yet fashionable contrast. Consider starting with a neutral base and then introduce a bold color as an accent. The pants, skirt, or a dress can be a neutral color. The bold color can be in the form of a top, jacket, shoes, and accessories, such as a scarf, a belt, or jewelry. The goal is to have a few elements within the outfit that draw attention to their colors. 

Consider using colors that are opposite of each other on the color wheel to maximize the contrasting effect. The neutral element simply acts as a backdrop, allowing the bold color to give off a sparkle without being overpowering.

Contrasting Warm and Cool Colors
Combining warm colors (e.g., red, orange, yellow) with cool colors (e.g., blue, green purple) can create an appealing contrast. Warm colors are generally associated with energy and warmth, whereas cool colors emanate a sense of calmness and tranquility. This creates, from a visual perspective, a dynamic and balanced look.
