2023 is undoubtedly the year of hair. With scalp care receiving utmost importance lately and everyone opening themselves up to experimenting with the wildest hair colours, it’s no secret that hair is in the limelight. It’s no different on the red carpet and the runways, where the hair seems to be centre stage! The past few award ceremonies and fashion weeks have shown us an outlandish number of hairstyles we could only dream of sporting. One thing all of them had in common was hair accessories.

Who wants to be simple with loose locks when you can be stunning with hair accessories? We’re talking barrettes, ribbons and gorgeous headbands. Hair accessories have the power to elevate your hairstyle and take it from a 0 to a 100 in no time. Here are a few accessories that have found a spot in our closets.

Bow Down

Barbiecore is alive and breathing, Sydney Sweeney at the MET Gala was a strong testament to that. The soft, rose gold Miu Miu gown she adorned was every bit stunning. However, all our attention was on her voluminous Barbie-like blowout which offered her locks just the ideal amount of lift at the roots, she accessorised this style with a rather large black bow. If you’re looking to add a feminine touch to your final look, hair bows are just the accessory to help you do that.

Embellished Bands

Lallier’s Ready To Wear F/W23 collection exuded some major party-girl energy. Embellished hair bands made a strong appearance in multiple looks, and let’s just say that we were impressed! The perfect accessory to add a dash of glamour to your outfit, embellished hair bands with dazzling rhinestones are also extremely versatile. Whether you’re donning a maximalist or a minimalist outfit, these bands can be sported with it. However, using them when your hairstyle of choice is a low ponytail would be the best decision since this will allow dangling jewels to fall freely with your hair.

Pearly Bubbles

Alright, don’t mistake this for an accessory that’s only meant for brides. Bubble braids are a Y2K favourite that has made a smashing comeback in the last few years. A breezy way to spruce up the usual braid, these are great for elevating your everyday look. However, we’re always looking for ways to add a little extra something into the mix. When we spotted clusters of pearls in Alanna Panday’s haldi hairstyles, it was an instant bookmark for us. Not only are pearls easy to work with, but they’re also an accessory that can be paired with multiple styles.

Can you tell that we’ve got somewhat of a soft spot for all things shiny? Michelle Yeoh was certainly the star of the night at the Oscars this year. Her gentle waves were accessorised with a scintillating necklace-turned-headband. This accessory was tucked into her waves to accentuate Michelle’s graceful energy.

A tale as old as time, hair ties have been around since the dawn of time, and they’re probably one of the most uncomplicated ways to add some drama to an otherwise basic hairstyle. Whether your pick is braids or ponytails, an outlandish hair tie can do no wrong. With so many options to choose from, such as blooming flowers, vibrant hearts or even cartoon characters—hair ties get an 11/10 from us. Now only if we can find them when we need them.
