If you’re like us, barrettes tend to remind you of cheesy family photos, and headbands evoke cringe-worthy memories from your days in prep school. But listen closely: it’s time to reclaim the hair accessory!
This year, we can’t help but notice our favourite celebs breathing new life into hair accessories. Style gurus like Lauren Conrad, Emma Stone and January Jones are just a few to completely modernize this otherwise dated look. Peep their inspiring styling below, and check out our tips to keep the hair accessory looking contemporary.
- A sleek barrette is a fresh way to style your bob/lob. For super short hair, make sure to opt small scale so as not to overpower your cut.
- A tasteful headpiece is a gorgeous way to add sparkle to your wedding day look and perfectly compliments an understated dress.
- Instantly pull together a messy bun with an elastic, embellished headband. The elastic will keep strays in place, and the sparkle and gems quickly transform undone into ultra glam.
