If there’s anything that has created a storm in the beauty circuit this year, it has to be… hair accessories. PERIOD! Thanks to runway models and celebrity hairstylists, hair accessories have got a whole new meaning.

From studded barrettes to colourful scarves, we’ve seen some uber cool hair accessories make their mark in the year 2019.

Here’s a little secret: ever since hair accessories became a rage, I cannot stop hoarding these cute and chic pieces myself. Yes, the addiction is real!

Anyhoo, here are some stunning hair accessories we saw celebrities sport in this past year.

 

Hoops… for the hair

If you thought that good old stylish hoops were only for your ears, Ananya Panday’s hairstylist shows you another way of styling this chic accessory. Ananya’s simple low ponytail gets a modern approach with three golden hoops layered one after the other at the back of her head.

 

Delicate pearls

If you’re a sucker for minimal yet gorgeous accessories, then pearls should be your pick. In 2019, we saw pearl hair accessories make a drool-worthy statement on ramps and red carpets alike. Delicate pearls look best on intricate braid-styles.

 

Hair threads for the win

Celebrities gave us a quirky alternative to the regular elastic rubber bands in 2019. From Sonam Kapoor to Ananya Panday, actresses gave delicate, colourful hair threads a chance to secure their hairstyle. Trust me, thread detailing can amp up even a boring or basic hairstyle.

 

Silk scarf

Head scarves have been around for a while. But it is only now that they’re being used so often as hair accessories. From Deepika Padukone to Taapsee Pannuu, we have seen silk scarves as hair accessories take centre stage in 2019.

Plus, silk improves the quality of your hair by retaining moisture. Just another reason to use silk scarves and take your hair game one level up.

 

Bomb barrettes

If you’re a beauty junkie, you’d know that barrette stacking was the biggest hair trend of 2019. Barrettes can instantly add more oomph to your hair game, even when you’ve worn your hair down in a simple, sleek manner. And, celebrities like Diana Penty and Richa Chadha are proof of that!

 

Cutesy bow hair band

Go big or go home has been the mantra when it comes to sporting trends in 2019. Malaika Arora made heads turn in an animal print dramatic one-shoulder outfit. But what stood out was her larger-than-life hair accessory: a similar print hair band with a huge bow. We loved the confidence with which she pulled off this risky OTT look!

 

Rewind to ribbons

Rewind to ribbons

Ribbons as hair accessories were huge in the 80s and 90s. Well, they sort of made a comeback in 2019. Divas like Deepika Padukone and Sanya Malhotra sported chic colourful ribbons to tie their hair and certainly made a statement.

BB pro tip: If you don’t know what print or colour to pick to complement your attire, then just go matchy-matchy. Match your hair accessory with your outfit; you’ll never go wrong!
