Most of us spent the summer of 2020 at home, reminiscing about days spent lazing on the beach while sipping a piña colada. But now that lockdown restrictions have eased and the summer sun is shining in all its glory, it’s time to pack your bags and book your tickets to that tropical paradise you’ve been longing to visit.

Needless to say, while on holiday, you’ll want to look nothing but amazing in all the countless selfies you’ll be taking for the ‘gram. And while your outfit and makeup play an important role, adding a hair accessory to your outfit is a great way to take your overall aesthetic a notch higher! Need proof? Allow our very own B-Town ladies to give you some.

Scroll down for five totally chic and trendy hair accessories to carry along on your beach holiday for some serious vacation style update…

An oversized straw hat is not only a quintessential beach accessory, but it is also such a cute and stylish way of preventing sun damage. Pair it with a flowy summer dress and a playful coral lip while hitting the beach, and get ready for the tons of compliments that will come your way!


02. Scrunchies

Big, beach-hair looks cute and all, but only until you actually try to run your fingers through your it… *ugh* nightmare! Therefore, keeping a hair tie in your bag is a total must-do. But instead of using those old elastic rubber bands that cause further breakage, opt for satin scrunchies with fun, boho prints. They will instantly level up your hair game while keeping the hair away from your face.


03. Fresh flowers

This may not be the most obvious choice of hair accessory, but it can take your look from zero to 10 in an instant. A fun-printed scarf can also be used in so many different ways to protect your hair — as a hair tie, headband, bandana, the options are endless. Cool, no?
