I rarely wear hair accessories, unless it is part of a specific costume (for example, for a dance with mileya). Generally I just make my hair curly or wavy, you know, to go for the "what is expected of a typical bellydancer" , but when I dance more modern stuff, I also like to experiment... For example, we did a troupe performance at the Stockholm Bellydance Festival last year, and we all had our hair in asymmetrical braided buns, and we got really great feedback on it ()
I usually make headbands and armbands for my costumes since they don't take much effort or fabric to do. Usually. Sometimes I don't have enough fabric to do it all, but a headband takes next to no fabric to make & it just finishes off a costume so nicely!
