Hair accessories are having a BIG moment right now. It’s a full-on Blair Waldorf frenzy, and I’m very here for it. All of my favorite retailers are getting in on the trend, too! My mom always had me in a massive bow when I was little, so the hair accessory game and I have some major history. I can also remember wearing a headband of some sort almost every day in middle school! The styles right now add an easy & glam touch to your hair for work. Or they can just add a little something extra to an outfit to make it feel more put together.
Today I’m sharing fifteen of the best hair accessories for long hair (or short hair!) to add into your daily hair wardrobe.
Hair accessories are an efficient and affordable way to speed up getting ready in the morning or going out and about. They’re also perfect for extending your second and third-day hair. (Yes, I’m insinuating that they can cover up any remaining bits of greasy sheen your dry shampoo didn’t catch, lol) All of these hair accessories would also be small and easy enough to pack for upcoming spring/summer getaways. Such a cute way to keep your hair up at the beach or pool without sacrificing style!
CUTE & AFFORDABLE HAIR ACCESSORIES FOR LONG HAIR
I found this knotted headband at Target, and it’s now on sale for $8.50. I put my hair in a low middle part bun and pop this on for a chic hair statement! It’s also cute to add in over second-day curls.
My friend got this set of velvet knotted headbands from Amazon, and they’re SO cute. She wore the black velvet one to dinner this weekend with jeans, a tee, and a bomber. It added the perfect feminine touch to a cool, edgy outfit!
If you really want to go for a statement-maker, try a bit bigger of a headband with a twist detail like this one.
The bigger the clip the better seems to be the mood around this hair accessory…
These oversized, pearl-embellished clips are $15 on Amazon and look very bold and feminine for a hair down kind of day.
Simple and sleek metallic clips are the look I gravitate towards. This rounded gold clip pops over a ponytail holder easily and looks so sharp for work or a dinner out!
Again, I am no stranger to bows. I love clipping a satin bow in with a low ponytail! It’s also cute to “dress up” a half up, half down look.
This bow scrunchie kind of does all the work for you. Since it has a pre-tied bow, you can just slip it on over a bun or pony, and you’re good to go!
Now I am no pro when it comes to using scarves in my hair. But with this scarf scrunchie, I don’t have to be! It comes in lots of color options and is only $12.
One of my favorite bloggers, Jess Kirby, has a great tutorial on how to tie a scarf into your hair! I think one of the key tricks is getting thinner, smaller scarves that are easy to fold up to tie around a ponytail or bun.
I’m really into bunny ear scrunchies because you have the added benefit of the bow (“bunny ears”) which makes it *ever so slightly* more formal. Throw one over a low bun, top knot, or high pony!
I always love Liberty London’s gorgeous floral fabrics, and J.Crew has a whole line of scrunchies in their patterns!
Leopard is also having a huge moment right now so this leopard bunny ear scrunchie had to make it on the best hair accessories for long hair list.
This set of regular leopard scrunchies is also an under $10 fave.
Where do you stand on hair accessories? Into it, not into it?
I know that I’ve had so much fun styling the accessories that I’ve bought over the past couple of months. The level of statement you want to make is really up to you since there are so many options! Go for bold hues and details or simple, sleek clips. Hair accessories are an incredibly easy way for everybody to spice up their daily hairstyles. You don’t need to know any special skills or braiding techniques etc.
