Cutting your hair short is a bold move, and most women tend to miss their long tresses once they run out of styling options. The whole idea of cutting your hair short is to spend less time styling it. However, there are days when you want to look a little dressed up and amp up your everyday look. This is precisely why hair accessories exist!

They are the easiest and quickest way to take any look from drab to fab. So, if you want to switch up your look for an upcoming party or a special date night, here are five hair accessories you need to get your hands on ASAP.

Short hair can pull off an oversized barrette just as beautifully as any other hair length. Putting on a barrette requires no extra time and yet completely transforms your look. Simply part your hair on one side and wear the barrette on the side with less hair to get this look.
