Your Guide To F/W 2019 Hair Accessories That Can Add A Sparkle To Every Look
Hair accessories have come a long way. From bobby pins to colourful barrettes and padded headbands, you must have noticed the wave of embellished hair accessories that have taken over global runways. Not to forget the oversized and stone-encrusted clips that are no longer limited to a school girl’s vanity kit. In fact, these can relegate any hairstyle, if styled well. So, whether you like to whip up your hair into a sleek bun, or prefer pulling out all the stops when it comes to experimenting with non-boring hair looks, we’ve rounded up some runway-inspired accessories that’ll do the trick for you. Ladies, it’s time to get with the memo.
Embellished Barrettes:Barrette spotted at Chanel F/W 19-20
Giving a stylish spin to the humble hair barrette, are these stone encrusted ones, that can elevate everything from soft waves to braids. If you’re racing against time on a Monday morning to ace that perfect hair look, try mixing and matching multiple styles to dress up those loose locks, or simply cinch your ponytail with a single gold barrette for a fuss-free yet slick style. This hair accessory comes in all possible forms, from lettered ones to solid gold-toned pieces that add the right amount of bling. We’re crushing on the ones that spell out words like ‘ Sexy’, ‘Girl Boss’, in rhinestones, and can jazz up even the most low-key outfit. Saint Laurent’s barrette, embellished with stones ticks all the right boxes.
Stone-Studded Hair Clips:Hair Clips Spotted at Versace F/W 19
Adorned with pearls and crystals, hair clips spell old-school cool. And we aren’t done with them just yet. Think bejewelled clips creatively arranged across your mane for a super interesting look. If you’re getting ready for a glamorous night out, we suggest tying your hair into a sleek chignon and decorating it with sparkly clips from Alessandra Rich. They maybe vintage, but are by far the most versatile of the lot. A low ponytail, adorned with an Oscar De La Renta studded clip is equal parts practical and pretty.(T-B):
Statement Headbands:Headband spotted at Ralph & Russo F/W 19
While headbands have been making quite a buzz, on and off the ramp, we were already taking notes from every Blair Waldorf approved look. These nifty hair accessories are easily wearable, and score major points on style. You don’t have to spend hours struggling to perfect that complex updo. Just slip on a statement band and you’re good to go. These embellished accessories have also received a fashion thumbs up from celebrities. Rita Ora has been spotted rocking bejewelled headbands and we loved how Sienna Miller paired her black headband with feline flicks. Even royalty is not far behind, with Kate Middleton rocking the trend wearing a simple padded black velvet number to dress up her classic chignon. We say, go big or go home.(T-B): Wald Berlin, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci
Over-The Top Tiaras:Tiara spotted at Simone Rocha F/W 19
This season, get ready to bid adieu to the oh-so-hyped flower crowns because tiaras are making a major comeback. And you don’t have to be a bride to look good in one. You can choose a crystal and rose embellished tiara from Dolce & Gabbana for an elegant cocktail night, or keep it minimal with Simone Rocha’s take on modern tiaras. Depending on your style, tiaras can be paired in multitude ways. We are taking some lessons from the iconic Princess Diana who sure knew how to work a tiara in her time.(T-B):
