Summer is finally here and it has us all excited because, duh, new wardrobe! Now, whether you are planning to head to a beach vacation or catching up with friends around town, having your style game on point is a necessity. And we’re sure, by now, you’ve already bookmarked all the clothes and beauty products you need, to excel the season’s fashion game. But have you decided what you're going to do about your mane?
Be it barrettes, hair clips or headbands, no matter what you choose – let your hair take center stage this summer. Prepare to be inspired by six of the trendiest hair accessories to adorn your tresses and look stylish, without getting all sweaty.
1. Hair scarves
Don't pack away your winter scarves just yet, because there's no hair accessory quite as versatile as this one. It's sure to add a touch of luxe to your tresses on sunny days, when you just can't stand to wear your hair down. Fold your prettiest pieces into a long vertical length and use it to tie your bun or add into your braid. We promise a look that's bohemian and totally on trend.
2. Bobby pins
This summer, think beyond the classic black bobby pin and embellish your tresses with delicate crystal and pearl-studded ones, instead. They're sure to add little pops of sparkle that'll elevate even the simplest of hairdo for the party, and are perfect accents for special summer occasions too. For a subtle yet classic look, add multiple pins throughout your hair and give it an understated finish.
3. Ribbon hair ties
The answer to looking fuss-free on those scorching summer afternoons all lies in a ribbon. Though seemingly simple, this hair accessory adds an instant sophisticated flair to every look with barely any effort required. So, the next time those top knots, pigtails or ponies need some oomph, a neatly tied bright coloured ribbon bow is all you need.
It wouldn't be a hair accessory list without a hairband completing it. This summer staple works efficiently with any length or hairstyle. They are simple, adjustable and help pull back hair from the face. All of that, while still dressing up your locks. Try one in a bright colour for a summer-ready look, or upgrade it to an embellished one to add some feminine touch.
There's no way we would forget the classic scrunchie. The perk of this much-loved accessory is how it keeps all hair in place. No wonder it's a go-to choice for busy mornings. This summer, choose yours in a fun pattern and you'll be ready to rock that ponytail. Also, they're one of the most inexpensive fixes and perfect for keeping hair away from your nape.
And finally, no matter what your hair texture, length or style is, a simple hair accessory is all you need to add instant glamour and a little extra gravitas to your gorgeous tresses.
6. Hair combs
An ornate piece that has a real fashion-forward edge and brings about an easy elegance. Hair combs are dainty accessories high on both, functionality and style. Not only does the comb tone down all frizz and flyaways, chicly, but a decorated one also pairs perfectly with an LBD or a party dress. You can wear this stunning accessory with your hair down or tucked into an updo.
