Hair accessories could easily be the biggest trend making a comeback in 2019. We’ve seen a number of fashionistas embellishing their hair with fancy hair clips, bows and headbands with no sign of hesitation. The best part is that hairstyles and hair colors may change with seasons, but seems like these accessories are here for the long haul.
Those who doubt that these assortments have a niche old-school feel or childlike whimsy, we assure you that it’s time to take jewelry beyond the body. Here is a guide to five cool hair accessories that are trending in fashion circuits and how to wear them.
Statement clips or barrettes
The old-school hair staple is all over Instagram. Whether it is a slim and sleek metallic fastener to hold the hair or a shiny embellished one, these barrettes look chic on any outfit. Also, we recommend ‘the more, the merrier’ approach here as layering them up is an iconic style. One look at the recent pictures of Kylie Jenner and Ariana Grande will prove the same. You can also mix up different her clip styles to create an eclectic and playful finish.
Pearl hair slides
A pair of simple pearl hair slides will suddenly make any casual daytime outfit feel so chic. You can also wear additional pearl jewelry for more trend points. Mahira’s Eid look definitely vouches for that!
Everybody remembers the Blaire Waldorf-esque headband which was a rage back in the day. It’s officially back and we’re quite happy about it. You can either opt for a headband with a bow or a sleek embellished type. Eman Suleman’s piece is wonderfully OTT but it is an ideal statement accessory and it is not so chunky that it overwhelms the look. For a day-to-day basis, you can go for a solid color with a knot in the middle to keep those grown-out bangs off your face.
Those who argue that silk scarves are for grannies should take a look at Deepika Padukone’s breathtaking headgear at Cannes. A silk scarf worn as a headband has become one of the fashion crowd’s most favourite ways to rock a hair accessory. Sana Safinaz used silk scarves as bandannas at PFDC fashion week recently and they looked uber classy.
