When it comes to doing my own hair, I have zero patience to do anything elaborate. Even the thought of the sheer time it takes to curl my hair (for context, my hair is rather thin, but there’s a lot of it) is enough to make me tie it up, out of the way. This laziness on my part is largely the reason why I’ve since become obsessed with hair accessories.
With the power to make your hair look pretty with minimal effort, hair accessories have become my go-to when my outfit feels a little plain, or I need a quick switch-up. So you can imagine my delight when, a couple of years back, hair accessories became a priority on the style agenda—a place they’ve remained ever since.
However, looking at my collection of hair accessories, it dawned on me that most of them were created with party season in mind. Hair clips are adorned with crystals, while velvet serves as the fabric of choice. As such, I set about to find more summer-appropriate options that will still give my hair an elevated feel, without feeling too fancy.
From the new ’90s add-on to a fresh take on puffy headbands, below you’ll find an edit of the best summer hair accessories fashion girls are wearing right now.
