Pick a re­laxed look – no se­vere up­dos or per­fectly styled curls

“The key is to bal­ance your ac­ces­sory of choice with an easy­go­ing hair­style that doesn’t feel too laboured,” says Sam. We rec­om­mend a messy bun, loose braid, soft French twist or rum­pled mer­maid waves.

Go for tons of tex­ture

“Mussed-up or day-old hair keeps ac­ces­sories from look­ing too girlie or overly ro­man­tic,” Sam adds. It also holds hair­pins and clips bet­ter than su­per-clean hair does.

If you’ve just sham­pooed, work a mousse, like (R220), into damp hair, and rough-dry it with a blowdryer to bring out its nat­u­ral waves.

If your hair is stick-straight, wrap big sec­tions around a large-bar­rel curl­ing iron in al­ter­nate di­rec­tions to cre­ate messy tex­ture; then add your head­band or hairslides.

Get cre­ative with your place­ment

Sam’s num­ber-one rule for plac­ing add-ons: “Use ac­ces­sories in place of or to hide hair elas­tics or bobby pins. Don’t put them in sym­met­ri­cally – that vibe is too school­girl. The best re­sult is when ev­ery­thing looks e‰or­t­lessly chic and thrown to­gether.”
