7 Trending Hair Accessories That Are A Must This Season

Just like fashion accessories complement your outfits, hair accessories do the same for your hair and overall look. After the return of claw clips, headbands and hats with the Y2K trend this year, these have become some of the most in-demand products.

A simple pulled back ponytail is effortless but add a barrette or a satin scarf, and you are ready to slay. Also, the hair accessories are getting bigger and better. This season, many of the runway looks were inspired by iconic retro trends, like bows and headscarves. Some accessories showed the futuristic side with glitter and metallics. We have put together a list of the most trending hair accessories this summer.

Trending Summer Hair Accessories

1. Bucket Hats

Bucket hats, also known as fisherman’s hats, are a trend from the 90s that elevates your look without trying too hard. They are laid back and a stylish way to cover up if you have a bad hair day. It can be scary to experiment with hats at first, but give it a try. Celebrities like Bella Hadid and Hailey Beiber have recently been spotted wearing one and that’s enough reason to add it to our mood board, isn’t it?

2. Pearls

We are loving everything about the pearlcore trend because pearls are never out of style. Supersized pearl barrettes, headbands and bobby pins with pearls are everywhere. They are simple yet elegant. If you’re doing a half-updo or wearing a low bun for your next brunch outing, you might like adding some drama with pearl pins.

3 Headbands

Headbands aren’t just to keep the hair out of the face but qualify as an easy style upgrade. Prada introduced them a few seasons ago, and they are still trending. Whether you are working with straight, curly or wavy textures, you can always find a headband to complement the hair type. Thin, embellished, wide, knotted, and printed pastels are some options to choose from and these are Blair Waldorf approved #IYKYK. To add to the fun, pair printed headbands with solid coloured outfits.

4 Headscarves

Headscarves were once worn by women around the house or when out for an errand who wished to cover their unkept roots. However, it’s been a while since we have got a modern twist to it. They are very versatile and can be styled in multiple ways. Simply tie it over your head for a casual look, or twist it into a braid for a day out. Headscarves were seen on the runways of The Row and Balenciaga this season.

5 Stacked hairpins

Hairpins might make you feel like a school kid, but the celebrities can’t get enough of them. They are loved by many for their versatility and multiple ways to style them. From neon to bejewelled ones, the choices are neverending. Hairpins can be stacked in multiple ways to create a look that’s chic and also keeps hair in place. Here’s a quick, fail-proof style: part your hair in the middle and add two blingy hairpins above the ears to get Gigi Hadid’s Met Gala 2018 look.

6 Flowers

Flowers add full bloom to your hair. They are seen in the form of barrettes, pins, headbands and hair combs this season. You can also opt for natural flowers if you are feeling them. They add a very whimsical look if styled with braids. Floral hair clips are more practical and a go-to accessory for weddings and dates.

7 Bows

Hair Bows were initially worn in the 1700s as a sign of femininity and prosperity. Chanel brought them back this season, and we hope they are here to stay. You can play around with different fabrics to achieve the desired look. If Selena Gomez’s SAG awards look inspires you, centre-part the hair and tie it in a clean bun, clip-on an oversized satin bow on the top of the bun and you are good to go.
