Bobby pins and hair clutchers have become too mainstream. It’s high time you start experimenting with hair accessories, especially during the festive season. If you are worried if it’s in or not, let us tell you that everyone from Meghan Markle and Emma Stone to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor have embraced accessories with open arms.
Give your Plain Jane hairstyle a glam makeover with these tips:
Floral hair accessories
A huge trend this year, the recently-held fashion shows at the New York Fashion Week’19 were a testimony. While high street brand Rodarte sent models down the runway with floral arrangements in their hair, handbag designer Mansur Gavriel’s show had a more delicate take on the trend.
Fresh flowers have also been a big part of Indian culture since ages. You must have definitely seen your mom or your grandmom adorn their hair with roses or jasmine during special occasions. So why not try it yourself this time?
Maang tikas and jhaptas
While these are usually associated with bridal wear, a celebration like Diwali calls for something fancy. Jhaptas and maang tikas make for a great choice to pair with traditional attires.
If you are a ’90s kid, then your mom must have definitely used the cute and colourful bow ties to style your hair. These hair accessories add a whole lot of charm to a look and the good thing is that they are back in vogue. Designers like Emilia Wickstead and Erdem too used these accessories in their latest collections.
Metallic hair accessories
Earlier, celebrity hairstylist Hiral Bhatia told indianexpress.com that ’80s-inspired accessories are making a comeback. “Cool metallic accessories are going to be super big.” From wearing them on your buns to using them as a side clip, there are many styles to choose from.
Pearls add a whole lot of elegance to your look. Be it a classic bun, messy ponytails, braids, or textured waves, pearl-studded accessories can be used to accentuate your look.
Hair rings have been sported by some Hollywood A-listers including Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande. This help add a boho touch to your braided look and messy waves.
Tiara is usually associated with royalty. But you channel your inner princess by wearing one this festive season.
