From festive soirées to work parties to epic NYE plans, the holiday season is the perfect time to dress up your strands. And what better way to do so than to add a little bling or a fun pop of color with some of-the-moment hair accessories? Think: bauble-bedecked headbands, pearl barrettes, colorful velvet scrunchies and more. Not sure which pieces will work best for your hair length and texture? We’ve got you covered! Check out the top hair accessories to grab this holiday season.
If you have short hair, try…
An embellished barrette
Shorter locks can grow a little boring after a while. Instantly add interest to your go-to style with a barrette featuring a hint of bling. Whether you opt for pearls, tiny rhinestones or colorful gems, a single hair clip along one side is the easiest way to dress up your locks. For a dramatic look, create a deep side part and toss the hair over to one side, then pin the other side of your hair into place.
If you have medium-length hair, try….
A chunky headband
Thick headbands reigned supreme on the Dior and Prada S/S 19 runways, and they’re even more perfect for the holiday season! From heavy-duty charms to flowers to edgy textures, headbands offer immense versatile and instantly add a touch of chic refinement to any look.
If you have long hair, try…
A velvet scrunchie
Who says you can’t dress up a messy bun or casual ponytail? A velvet scrunchie provides a festive feel to even the most low-key style, especially when you’re in a rush. One foolproof look to add to your repertoire? Create a ballerina bun, then gently pull at the roots to add volume. Secure a velvet scrunchie around the bun, then pull out a few face-framing pieces for an effortless style that will work for any night out!
If you have curly hair, try…
A colorful scarf
Looking for more ways to show off your natural texture? Use a printed scarf to draw attention to your gorgeous locks! Opt for opulent-looking patterns, such as chain prints, moody florals or stripes in shades that contrast your hair color. Pull the hair into a low ponytail, a loose braid or a romantic half-updo, then gently wrap the scarf around your hair.
If you have a pixie cut, try…
Stacked bobby pins or barrettes
Creating cool designs with multiple bobby pins is an easy way to spice up a cropped cut. From modern geometric patterns to edgy stacking, metallic bobby pins work on every hair length and texture. Pro Tip: To prevent slipping, apply a generous amount of hairspray to each bobby pin before applying them to your hair.
