5 Hair Accessories Fashion People Can't Stop, Won't Stop Wearing

·3-min read

Shopping mindfully is becoming a priority for many of us. We know this to be the case from conversations in our Facebook group So… Should I Buy This? As such, instead of investing in a new dress or full-blown outfit every time we find ourselves in a wardrobe rut, we’re continuously on the lookout for small updates to refresh our looks. Perhaps the easiest update of them all is a well-chosen hair accessory.

When it comes to hair accessories, it’s easy to gravitate towards what you know or pieces you may have tried in the past. Alice bands made a comeback a handful of seasons ago, bringing with them a dose of nostalgia that’s hard to resist, and they are still proving prevalent in fashion circles. That said, there is a host of other trendy hair accessories that have emerged since, which can be just as impactful.

As well as jewel- and pearl-adorned slides and barrettes, lately, we’ve been noticing many people really committing to the hair-accessory trend by way of ’90s-style claw clips, sweet silk hair scarves, and supersized scrunchies, too. So if you’re in need of a bit of hair-decoration inspiration, scroll below and take a look at some of the trendy hair accessories we love—we have a feeling you will, too.


We're so grateful that 2021 has marked the return of the claw clip—simply scoop up your hair, and lock it in place. It looks exceptionally great with a backless dress.
