What’s the latest craze to hit the fashion world in a big way? Hair accessories! With a nod to the 90’s, all things hair candy is back on the radar. Embellished combs, diamante pins, clips, barrettes and headbands have arrived. Not to mention crimped hair having a moment (hello 80’s!) - all that was old is new again. We’ve seen celebs and models alike donning these beautiful, eye catching styles to red carpet events, on the runway and all over the ‘gram. Here are some key pieces you need to own right now and how to wear them.
The pearl encrusted clip comes in an assortment of shapes and sizes. It looks great on its own or paired with other pieces. Part your hair in the middle and clip these behind your ear, to keep your hair back with bling appeal. Use them to pull off the half up, half down look or with a sleek pony tail for effortless chic. These are a versatile piece and look great dressed up or down for everyday wear too.
The bejeweled comb is another way to jazz up your hair. These come in pearl or sparkly diamante encrusted styles, adding a touch of glam to your outfit. It’s a very classic old Hollywood look, and is perfect with vintage faux fur and a dress with heels for an important date. Wear one on each side behind your ears, or with a low bun for a very Parisian style. So perfect with a pleated midi skirt, ballet flats and turtleneck.
The padded headband or turban is another on trend item to take your hair game to the next level. Looking both flirty and fun in the warm weather and keeping those flyaway hairs at bay in the chillier months. Again, versatility is on point with the head wrap, taking a casual outfit of jeans and tee up a notch, or embellished headbands adding extra wow to your next night out on the town.
With many of these items also found in vintage or op shops, from the era they were first in fashion – there’s no excuse not to give this trend a whirl second time around. They won’t break the budget so you can easily have fun, with a variety of them to mix and match. Adorning your hair with an assortment of these pieces is super fun so give it a try. Who says candy isn’t good for you?
