Over the past few years, hair accessories have developed a bad reputation. Rather than cover up a fab style with a fussy accessory, hair trends adopted a ‘less is more’ approach and we experimented with rainbow colours and creative cuts instead. But with 90s-inspired fashion and the popular ‘undone’ festival look, hair accessories are making a comeback. Forget neon scrunchies and feathered facinators – in 2015, the hair accessory is seriously stylish! Here are a few of our fave accessories and how to wear them.
Perfect for the beach, a bejewelled headdress is a great way to add glamour to a relaxed look. Wear with loose, undone waves and your favourite bikini.
We love flower crowns with pastel hair for a cute and quirky look. Top tip – if you’re heading to any late-summer festivals this year, a flower crown will hide unwashed hair.
90s style is hot right now but if you’re not ready to dig out your pedal pushers and Buffalo trainers, the scrunchie is a subtle nod to the trend. Look for sleek leather versions and gather hair into a messy bun.
Feathers are another festival winner – pin them in to a loose up-do or weave into a fishtail plait for a casual take on the boho look.
Add subtle sparkle to a wedding look with a vintage hairpin. For refined style, clip a hairpin into a sleek chignon or for a more relaxed look, use a jewelled pin to sweep tumbling waves away from your face.
