Hair accessories are not just a fashion decision, but when paired with some creative problem solving, can take one of your worst hair days and make it a little bit sweeter. Imagine tucking your flyaways behind a headband, side-sweeping your short layers with a pearl bobby pin, elevating your bed-head ponytail with a silk scarf. Accessories are finally being seen as more than just an add-on item, they can be the answer to our daily hair woes.
All summer long, celebrities and street style influencers donned puffy, silk and velvet headbands inspired by Prada’s Spring 2019 runway and the perfect oversized hair clips to offset the mundanity of their regular hair routines. As the first inklings of fall begin, we’re predicting the hair accessory craze is staying for the long-haul. That’s why we’ve compiled inspiration photos from our favorite influencers who utilize hair accessories in a way that’s both fashion and ease.
One of our accessory inspirations comes from influencer and entrepreneur Danielle Bernstein. Her oversized baby blue clip is the perfect trick and style piece to pull back her face-framing layers that otherwise would be too short to tuck into a ponytail. It’s functional and easy to manage, plus it gets the hair out of your face on a busy day

The ponytail scarf is one of our personal favorite hair trends, and influencer Julie Sariñana, is a master at styling it. This accessory is particularly useful if you need a quick hair fix or don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to your hair routine in the morning. It elevates the classic ponytail to bohemian chic. Not to mention, scarves come in all prints and colors so it’s a great way to add a punch of color to your outfit.
Now, we figured if one is going to invest in some beautiful scarves, there should be multiple ways to purpose them! We love the way lifestyle influencer and DJ, Hannah Fallis Bronfman, styled hers. There are endless ways to tie a scarf as a headband, but learning how to tie a few solid knots and a bow will go a long way. It’s great volume, and volume is always a bonus!
Next up on the inspiration board is Camila Coelho, influencer and fashion designer, as she wears a velvet headband with a strong and slick side part.
One of our pro tips to get this look is to spray your brush or comb with hairspray and “set” the hair that will be displayed in front of the headband. This will keep it smooth and frizz free and get that sleek look.
DJ and music video director, Vashtie, is the perfect inspiration for some bedazzled bobby pin symmetry. From diamond pins to pearls, this is a great look that is playful and confident. Our pro tip is that when you step out of the shower, if you want your wispy hairs and shorter layers to dry flat this is a great option. Bobby pin and go! Hairspray helps, too.
