After a great haircut and the most beautiful hair colour created for you in the salon, hair accessories are one of the most playful and important elements of any hairstyle. Particularly for summer 2023, as we’ve seen a resurgence of them on the catwalks for this season’s fashion shows. Plus, hair accessories are always a natural for bridal looks. Whether you’re the bride, bridesmaid or guest.
Here are a few options in terms of hair accessories to elevate your style for parties, weddings, and other special occasions. And, of course, every day!
The Classic Headband
One of the easiest hair accessories to love, the jersey headband pulls hair into place quickly with a sleek and sophisticated ease, may it be Riviera chic or city super casual. It’s also the perfect accessory to elevate your style to a quiet luxury look — so on trend for summer 2023 — and the ultimate must-have that won’t break your budget. It can take you from the gym to run errands, or even a nice summer cocktail get-together. Plus, it’s super versatile. A few jersey headbands in different colours and prints will enhance most of your summer looks.
Forever forgiving, the extensible headband can even camouflage roots regrowth around the temples and, with a helpful dusting of dry shampoo, can give you an extra day or two of unwashed hair that still looks good. How great is that!
In tune with everything Y2K making a comeback (think shrunken T-shirts, velvet track pants sitting on the hipbone and high-rise sneakers), hair claws are your ultimate Barbiecore accessory. Perfect for all occasions, whether you’re heading to the cottage, hitting a music festival (yes, piknic électronique counts!), or simply strolling downtown after Sunday brunch, the functional and fashionable claw is the ideal hair accessory.
Whether you’re in a rush or want to create an effortless look, hair claws can be a lifesaver. They offer a quick and convenient way to style your hair without requiring intricate braiding or styling techniques. Great when you’re poolside or at the beach! When using them, make sure your hair is dry or slightly damp for a better hold.
Barrettes and Bows
Classic hair accessories since the 60s — just think of those vintage photos of celebrities jet setting to a chic European vacation — barrettes and bows are available in an array of different styles, sizes and materials: from the super classic large tortoiseshell snap barrette to the tiniest bobby pins with bows that look so pretty when worn in a row.
Barrettes offer tons of hairstyling possibilities, from half-up looks to side-swept styles, to updos. Just choose the size you need to help secure sections of the hair.
So now’s the time to enjoy some summer fun and sun without your hair blowing up all over the place!
