Why this holiday is the perfect time to amp up your hair bling
Accessorise to the max
Yes, 2019 was definitely the year of the hair accessory, as an influx of pretty bows, blingy barrettes, a few cool clips, and more showed us that you're never really fully dressed until your tresses are. And with back-to-back parties and extra-special-occasion dinners, why not send the year off with a sparkly bang via a little tribute to its most striking accessory?
First off the humble hair slide; ready to wear with super long locks or a Meg Ryan bob-cut circa '90s, snap-clip barrettes are the easiest of the bunch for adding a chic and creative spin to a boring pony or annoying overgrown fringe. Brands like Simone Rocha, Shrimps, and Ashley Williams were first to fly the flag for the barrette revival trend back in S/S2018, and now everyone from Versace to Gucci have offered their versions of the accessory, from bejewelled to graphic. Wear them individually or, if you're feeling adventurous, stack them up!
Headbands are perhaps the easiest hair accessory to wear; their fool-proof way of making any bad hair day not so bad gives these padded adornments major party appeal. Go for a Blair Waldorf-esque take with a chic padded Prada version, or try something a little more extravagant with a crystal-embellished creation courtesy of Gucci, because more is definitely more come party season!
