Did you hear? Hair accessories are huge right now



That’s a basic calculation: any hairstyle + an accessory = a party-ready outfit. (If parties always happen, that is. Honestly, what the hell is going on?) Regardless of how we end up toasting on the holidays, a little bit of disguise should definitely be the order of the day. . And there is no easier way to do it than with a fabulous hair accessory. Let the stars manifest.

Scunci Rhinestone Lapel Pins, $ 5, walmart.ca SHOP HERE

HAIR JEWELERY: Alicia Keys’ crystal encrusted bun was dazzled at this year’s Met Gala. Each gem seemed to have been carefully glued to the musician’s hair, but you can recreate the look a lot faster (and less engaging) by simply twisting a few old-fashioned (really early!) Hair jewelry.

Forever 21 Bow Barrette, $ 3, labaie.com SHOP HERE

ARC BAR: Infusing instant romance, a black bow barrette is the kind of accessory that never goes out of style. Secure it at the base of a classic updo to embrace her old fashioned trends or take a cue from actor Lucy Boyton and contrast it with a more relaxed tousled style.

VIccoo Padded Headband, $ 8, amazon.ca SHOP HERE

THE PADDED HEADBAND: Dame Helen Mirren is in a serious headband phase right now (glitter, print, tie – you name it, she rocked it) and we are, as the kids say, really here for that. Follow her lead and pair a classic black quilted version with a low pony or loose strands.

Simons Large Mother of Pearl Clip, $ 12, simons.ca SHOP HERE

THE CLAW CLIP: Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner all agree that the coolest way to get your hair out of your face is to use a claw clip. What’s not to like? It’s nostalgia for the 90s with a generous side of casual “I just did my hair”. For a party vibe, swap the classic turtle for something with a little sparkle, like this mother-of-pearl option – chic but versatile enough to wear all year round.

Club Monaco Tulle Scrunchie, $ 18, clubmonaco.ca SHOP HERE

THE SCRUNCHY: As we love a spiky darling, let’s count the paths! Loosely wrapped around a low pony (chic!), Securing a towering bun or, like Lizzo, serving as a border between sleek roots and a cascade of curls (glorious!). From silky to glittery and everything in between, there is no shortage of scrunchies on the market. But let’s stop for a moment to appreciate the sight that is this sparkling tulle number – like a tutu for your hair.

Lychee Hair Rings, $ 31 (for 20), amazon.ca SHOP HERE

HAIR RINGS: Academy Award – Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o knows the power of strategic shine. With the addition of a few embellishments to the braids around her face, her entire ensemble takes on a fun and festive look as her face is bathed in a flattering light.

Garage Butterfly Hair Clips, $ 10 (for 3), garageclothing.com SHOP HERE

THE BUTTERFLY CLIP: Yes, butterfly hair accessories are back! Raise your hand if you used to stocking up at Claire’s. Instead of the pink plastic versions of yore, this is now a high butterfly. Take Saoirse Ronan, for example, who rocked a jeweled creature in her hair at the Oscars last year. It was probably encrusted with real diamonds, but for something a little more affordable, hang up these adorable slides from Garage.

Old Navy Soft Knit Bow Tie Headband, $ 10, oldnavy.ca SHOP HERE

THE TIE HEADBAND: Fun fact: Ciara’s stylist Maeve Reilly decided at the last minute to take a piece of fabric from the singer’s dress and tie it in her hair. Paired with his curly bun, he had an almost ’80s fun feel (like a glam aerobics instructor, right?). Recreate the effect with this Stretch Bow Tie Headband from Old Navy.
