The sea­son’s state­ment hair ac­ces­sories.

From bar­rettes and head­bands to bobby pins and tiaras, ev­ery Fash­ion Week around the globe has de­ter­mined that hair ac­ces­sories are back in the spot­light.

“They’re one of my favourite things be­cause you can take any style, whether it’s min­i­mal or max­i­mal, to a whole new level just by adding ac­ces­sories,” says hairstylis­t Kristin Ess. If adorn­ing your pony­tail takes you right back to high-school scrunchies and photo-day rib­bons, don’t be put off. We’ve moved be­yond bows – al­though they’re still cool – but there are plenty of other pretty op­tions to suit your style.

“Use an ac­ces­sory to pull to­gether a nat­u­ral, day­time look, start­ing with chicbut-ver­sa­tile ba­sics such as a sim­ple me­tal­lic bar clip, a clean me­tal­lic pony­tail cuff, or rose-gold bobby pins,” sug­gests Ess. It might be tempt­ing to stock up on cheaper op­tions, but Ess ad­vises “in­vest­ing in a few clas­sic pieces in­stead of tonnes of trendy ac­ces­sories that will quickly go out of style”. You can also scour your wardrobe to see what you al­ready own that could be in­cor­po­rated into your hair­style, such as scarves or neck­laces that can eas­ily adorn braids, pony­tails and buns. Sleek and shiny hair­styles can work for evening or for­mal events, but ac­ces­sories will look best when matched with tex­tured hair for that per­fectly im­per­fect ef­fect.
