Must-Have Headpieces: Top 5 Hair Accessories

in TASTEMAKERS

By Megan Koester

Your hair is a canvas, and while a great cut and style go a long way, how you accessorize tells a lot about who you are.

The time for boring, basic headpieces and a single bobby pin is over. If you’re looking to redo your hairdo, try these five top accessories:

Headbands

Every woman deserves to look like a Grecian goddess every now and again.

The Calla Lily Cocktail Headband by Eugenia Kim will have you looking like a bronze statue—it works perfectly with messy, beachy waves or an askew updo. It’s one of those headpieces you can wear both day and night, giving your look a touch of elegance no matter where you are.

Hair Combs

Hair comb from Neiman Marcus

A hair comb is a simple, timeless way to keep your hair back without having to resort to a tired, boring bobby pin. The L. Erickson Rhinestone Flower Chignon Comb shines with gold and rhinestone details, providing the perfect accent to your flowing locks.

The stones dazzle against dark hair and augment the gold tones of light hair, making it an accessory that works for everyone.

Designer ScarvesHeadscarf from Neiman Marcus

A designer scarf is one of the most elegant ways to hide a bad hair day.

The Missoni Butterfly-Print Voile Head Scarf has a chic butterfly pattern that pops with oranges, pinks, and purples, making it the perfect hair accessory for spring (or, really, any time you don’t particularly feel like washing your hair).

You can use it as a neck scarf as well—how many other headpieces can claim such versatility?

Hair Sticks

Messy buns are very hot right now. Glam them up a bit with a gold Twist Hair Stick by Stefanie Sheehan. Go from the office to dinner just by switching out your hair elastic with this timeless piece. It looks way better in a bun than a pencil . . . and it will hold longer.

Bobby Pins

Just because it’s a bobby pin doesn’t mean it has to be dour, uninspired black.

Floral bobbypins from Neiman Marcus

This pair of L. Erickson Rhinestone Flower Bobby Pins with rhinestone pavé embellished details is simple and elegant, and can go with any outfit. Cute accessories like these add a little sparkle to any basic hairstyle.

Want to hide a bad hair day . . . in style? Get yourself a designer scarf like this one by Missoni, available at Neiman Marcus. With a just a knot, your unruly tresses are transformed from grim to glam!
