The Right Way to Wear Hair Accesories

It can be something as simple as a pair of earrings, a new pair of shoes, or a new batch of hair accesories to perk you and your wardrobe up to give you a new look. Hair accesories are the easiest way to dress up your mane and keep it tame at the same time. With all the new hair bling out there today, the only way to make it look good is to learn the right way to wear it.


Barrettes have made a comeback with a more adult touch to them. But barrettes are made to be sparkling hair accessories, not just to pull your hair straight back. Stick to glittery and jewelled barrettes that flatter the head and face.

If you have short locks or a bob, stick with small barrettes. Barrettes that are too large look clunky, uncomfortable, and overpower the face.

Hair Bands

Headbands today are colourfully retro or glamorously skinny strappy. No matter your choice, it will liven up your hairstyle. If you are going for a retro band, you want volume in the hair so the hair band does not flatten you down.

Hair bands are meant to make your look fresher and more alive, so do not pull all your hair back into a headband unless:

One: The band is very wide and you have long flowing locks.

Two: You have a short do or a bob cut.


One of the latest hair accessories of the year are feathers. These can be very chic but only if you wear in moderation. Do not cover your head in feathers, choose a simple or flashy piece and wear it alone in the hair.


Flowers are another one of those hair accessories that celebs love this year. You see a lot of flowers tucked into side buns and up front framing the face.

Floral hair accessories are very versatile, but the one thing you do not want to do is wear it too high on the head. That pushes it to an outdated look and it loses its chic appeal.
