ACCESSORY REPORT

Clutch the pearls, girls!! As you may know, we’re always on the hunt for new hair accessories. We live for a good trend but we also get down with the stand-alone classic! (Remember THIS ONE!?) Pearls are clearly a classic but we’re finding that they’re having a big moment right now and wanted share some of our current faves!

  1. THE PEARL PONY. Dresses up a simple outfit in a classic way.
  2. DOUBLE STRAND PEARL/STAR HEADBAND. So gorgeous. You could definitely see this on a maid-of-honor.
  3. PEARL VINE HEADBAND. And then of course, this on a bride!
  4. PEARL BOBBYPINS (ASSORTED SIZES). Love this set of four! So great for placing randomly in a chignon or braid.
  5. TINY LEAF COMBS. Dresses up a messy bun in under two minutes! I know these aren’t pearl but they made it into the accessory report anyway! So dainty.
  6. SINLGE PEARL FRENCH PIN. This is my FAVORITE of all of these. So simple and extremely chic.
  7. PEARL TRIO. (PS, this set is on saaaaale!)
  8. BRANCH BOBBIES. These would be amazing for an outdoor winter wedding!

SHAPE CLIPS

THE BEAUTY DEPARTMENT HEART CLIP

You’ve probably noticed that many of our hair posts lately have been about HAIR ACCESSORIES and how to wear them, but like, TIS THE SEASON to be shopping! I have tons of younger women in my world– siblings, nieces, assistants, etc… and I need some stocking stuffers, present toppers and shiny things to gift my girls. In our office we’ve been loving these shape clips, not just because they’re cute AF but also because they’re a quick solution for pulling your look together. Some give off a playful/youthful vibe and some feel a bit “cooler”. We’ll let you decide!

THE BEAUTY DEPT SHAPE CLIPS

  • GEOMETRIC (gold) 
  • HEART (the one linked is $$$ and 24k plated. I can’t find less expensive ones to link to but they’re out there! I bought this one at Nordstrom and it was by a brand called “Carole” and it was $10)
  • DIAMOND (gunmetal)
  • TRIANGLE (dark grey, silver)
  • TRIANGLE (gold/cream, gold/navy, gold/wine)
  • CIRCLE (silver, gold)

Loving these ones with a little section pulled to the side. These clips are slightly smaller (1 to 1 1/2 inches) so they wouldn’t be used on a larger section of hair like the ones up top.

We were trying to find some quick/cool ways to wear one of these clips and this was our fave.

  • pull (messy, second day) hair half up
  • divide the section into two
  • tie those pieces in a knot
  • add clip below the knot

VOILA!

NEWEST OBSESSIONS: LONG COMBS

With the holiday rush, we’re currently obsessed with anything that cuts down our personal glam time. These LONG METALLIC COMBS are extra helpful! I picked up two of these stunners while out shopping the other day and am in LOVE! They’re so pretty in the back of the head, adding just the right amount of subtle sparkle. They’re so easy to use and amazing for girls on the go! These ones come in gold and silver and we’re feelin’ both!

Love the way it looks over a messy bun as well! Better snag one of these for a quick holiday party look!

I prefer to add a couple quick bobby pins to secure the comb in place and avoid any sliding, but that’s up to you!

NEW FAVORITES

crystal crown the beauty department free people

We’re going to creep into fall soon so we had to do a little online shopping for the upcoming season change! The second I laid my eyes on this CRYSTAL CROWN I knew I had to have it. It’s just gorgeous and will make a fun accessory for an outdoor event or maybe I’ll use it for a shoot, who knows. Either way– gimme all the sparkly things!!!!

If the crystal crown is a little too much for you, peep these  STONE HEADBANDS as an alternative. They’re a little more subtle and not too overpowering but still gives earthy goddess vibes.

Most of us aren’t ready to give up those beachy summer waves just yet. MESSY HAIR TEXTURIZING SPRAY is pretty rad. I like it because it has both argan and coconut oils and doesn’t leave my hair feeling dry AT ALL. I go through these bottles very quickly in summer and fall.

Not really my norm to say use GLITTER SPRAY, but I really like this one. The glitter is so fine that it sort of disappears into the hair and you get this subtle sparkle when you’re in the sun. It’s nothing like those chunky glitter hairsprays of the 90’s. But… it’s still glitter, so you’ll have to deal with that for like, what? A month?

I know, I know, I know… you could make this. That was my immediate thought too. But then I realized by the time I buy the stuff to make this and put gas in my car to go get it, I could have just sprung for this $6 PONY BOW. This feels like a good thing to have in your purse at all times in case you need to pull a look together quick.

Calling all cool girls. These little METALLIC BOBBIES are on sale right now actually. I think the ridges + colors make them feel a little more bad ass. They’re ideal for anyone growing out their bangs or wanting to accessorize a bob/lob.

summer fall hair accessories the beauty department

These 4 miscellaneous fall finds are going with me in my suitcase as I’m about to do a lot of traveling. Using this dried flower TIARA in my client’s desert wedding this October. You can never have too many quick METAL COMB accessories to slip behind the ear with wavy hair! Last but not least, I got this INDIGO WRAP + yellow TURBAN WRAP for those days when I just don’t wanna deal!
