African Butterfly Hair Comb History

The African Butterfly Hair Comb has come to the United States. Invented and hand beaded in South Africa, it is a unique hair accessory that securely and comfortably holds up all types of hair much more effectively and snugly than other conventional hair combs on the market today.

This attractively beaded hair comb comes in a range of colors, styles, and price ranges to match any outfit, occasion, and budget. They are very easy to insert into your hair, and anybody with hair that needs to be held up off their shoulders for any length of time should have an African Butterfly Hair Comb.

This hair clip elegantly takes care of your hair for that special occasion, your work days and sport events or to keep hair dry and out of the hot tub. The African Butterfly holds bridal veils securely, even in moderately short hair. Women in the medical, food, beauty, or hair industry all share the benefit of having their hair out of the way while looking neat and professional. Other happy customers include grad students, new moms, dancers, as well as sailing, hiking, canoeing and outdoor enthusiasts. Grandmothers right through to young girls are all sure to find an African Butterfly Hair Comb that appeals to them. They are so easy to insert, anyone can use them!
