HAIR ACCESSORY ROUNDUP

Attachment-1-1

While it can be totally satisfying to splurge on that new cult-fave hair PRODUCT or CURLING WAND you’ve been coveting, I’m also big on the thrill of adding gorgeous and versatile hair accessories to my growing collection. They provide a level of instant gratification that products and tools sometimes can’t…like great jewelry, a chic hair clip or interesting accessory can instantly elevate an otherwise simple look. With ongoing summer temps being of the relentless persuasion (what? I can’t hear you over the squirt bottle/fan combo I’m waving around my face like its my job.), we’ve pulled together a well-rounded list of perfect accessories to help you chill. Links below the photos.

1. SAFETY PIN CLIP  I’d wear a paper clip too if it was dipped in gold. It’s just SUH cute!

2. OVERSIZED BARRETTE This classic barrette must have chowed the “eat me” cake (Alice & Wonderland fans?). Mini things are adorable, but giant versions are just plain useful. Also how is this only $4?!

3. TORTOISESHELL CHIGNON STICK  I always have one of these in my bag – it’s way chicer than a pencil holding up a chignon when you’re burning the midnight oil.

4. GOLD LEAF CLUSTER HEADBAND Such a perfect bridesmaid hair accessory! Anyone can throw this in and make simple waves or a loose updo something major!

5. GOLD HEART CLIP Never met a shape clip I didn’t like. Bonus points if you can create a braided updo this interesting before adding it in!

6. HANDMADE GOLD HAIRPIN Have nothing for your hair that you do not know to be beautiful, or believe to be useful.

7. TURQUOISE AND BRASS BARRETTE This statement piece is so gorgeous and unique – use it with THIS trick to pony-up thick locks in the prettiest of ways.

8. THIN GOLD BAR HAIR CLIP Dramatic, yet simple – use this thin clip to hold back a few key pieces in any half-up scenario.

9. INFINITY HAIR CLIP For my finer-haired girls, this little gem is small and light-weight, so it can add a little pizazz to your maine without weighing it down.

10. SILK PONY BRAIDER When you find your creative vibes are flowing, make the prettiest braid ever with this soft pink silk woven through it.

11. CRYSTAL LEAF HEADBAND This is special enough to grace the locks of a late summer/early fall bride! It has just the right amount of sparkle, and the asymmetry keeps things interesting.

12. GOLD OUTLINE HAIR CLIP Simple and sleek – this barrette will keep your locks off your neck without drawing too much attention away from a very on-trend off-the-shoulder number.

….And the best part is, no one will notice your back sweat when you make gorgeous hair the focal point. Am I right?!

CURRENT FAVORITE PINS

We all know floating around Pinterest is the best/worst time warp ever. We’re totally guilty and we like it. Sometimes it’s just great to sit down and get inspired by the handywork of others. We can’t always find the original source of an image, but they sure do provide major inspiration on our office mood boards. We thought we’d share some of our current favorites…

Love doing these with gels because they typically last a couple weeks and you’re able to wear them for both Christmas AND New Years Eve parties.

We need a tutorial on this updo, stat!

Such a stellar headband by the one and only Jennifer Behr. Better pick up the new Cosmo mag!

This girls curls are everythingggggggg.

Kinda looks like these were made with a marker. Regardless, real cute!

We’ll have what she’s having– as in the most perfectly messy waves we’ve ever seen.

We  might be swapping out our black liner for a little metallic around the holidays!

So into a floppy velvet bow. Makes a messy fall pony so much more interesting.

We always love a flower crown but something about this one is extra special… soo dainty + delicate. Perfect for a chignon like this.

Oh, the cute things you can do with bobby pins…

Fall is here. Bust out those hats, pretty ladies.

That clip tho…
