Hair Accessories That Elevate Simple Styles

Hello, lovelies! How is everyone? I hope you are all having a beautiful day so far! It is morning where I am and it feels so nice outside. It is a bit atypical for spring/summer based on my location, but I'll take the brief change from hot and muggy weather today!

Speaking of the humidity, whenever it starts to get warmer outside, my hair definitely starts to be impacted. I tend to go for a simple or understated hairstyle in summer because the chances that my hair will get messier throughout the day are a lot higher then. However, simple doesn't have to mean boring! So, for today's post, I am detailing a few different hair accessories that can elevate simple hairstyles from basic to noteworthy. Let me know what you think!

Statement Headbands

If you've followed me for a while, you may have noticed that I really love headbands. I think they are such a great method of adding something extra to an outfit. A good statement headband can be a great investment into your personal wardrobe because it's such an easy way to bring out the elegance to any look.

Gemstone Barrettes 

There's not much else that can perk up an outfit like adding some sparkle, and a great way to do that is by wearing gemstone barrettes! Whether they are pearl, crystal, or rhinestone, clipping a barrette or two into a messy bun or up-do can be a perfect finishing touch.

Ornate Claw Clips

If you're aiming for an air of elegance, then look no further than an ornate claw clip. We all know that a good claw clip is a necessity for all sorts of up-do's, but there's just something effortlessly chic about adding a claw clip with extra detailing or engraving. To create a timeless look, use an ornate claw clip to twist up your hair in a stylish bun.

Bow Scrunchie

For a bohemian-inspired look, try using a bow scrunchie. This accessory is perfect for when you're having a messy hair day but also want to create a fun, free-spirited look while maintaining a chic vibe. Not mention as an added plus, scrunchies can be really comfortable! 

I know this is a shorter post, but I hope that you all enjoyed it and that it was helpful! What hair accessories do you normally wear? How do you typically style your hair? Do you have any tips or tricks to creating a timeless, elevated hairstyle? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I never used to be into hair accessories but in recent years, I have been wearing them a little bit more. I'm loving the return of the claw (sounds like a horror, lol) and clips. I really do adore headscarf's too. Have a great weekend Sydney : )

    1. I love a good headscarf, as well! Especially a light, airy one. Thank you for reading! <3
