In my opinion, hair accessories can elevate an outfit. There is nothing I love more than throwing on a headband to make my leggings and hoodie combo immediately appear sporty-chic rather than plain lazy, and it seems that I’m not the only one. Lately I’ve been seeing a range of hair accessories all over my Instagram feed, and they are definitely going to be big news this autumn.
Not only do they amp up an outfit, but they are perfect if you don’t have time to style your hair every morning. When I’m in a rush, I throw my hair back and secure it in place with a claw clip to look put together in seconds, and I know so many friends that do the same.
Hair accessories can work for all hair types and textures, and I especially love using them on second and third day hair, as I find that they stay in place a little easier. However, if you do have freshly washed hair, you can still work accessories into your look. “I like to use a texturising spray to add grip to the hair,” says Zoë Irwin, GHD global ambassador and creative director at John Frieda. See? Some tactical hairstyling products are all you need.
