7 Reasons Your Hair Deserves to Be Accessorized As Much As Your Fingers And Ears

landscape-1505921826-sr-hair-2

When’s the last time you thought about really doing your hair, outside of styling it (even just brushing it, if you’re so low-maintenance you might be broken)? Now’s the time to bring clips and flowers and pearly barrettes to the forefront of your minds, comrades, because they’re pretty and convey a sense of deliberateness we seem to have lost. Here, seven fresh ideas that might persuade you to have a dig through your (hair) jewelry box.

J.W. ANDERSON

A simple barrette slipped in near the hairline lends a schoolgirl-y dimension that complements Anderson’s slightly off-kilter fit-and-flare dresses.

SIMONE ROCHA

And like the previous slide but more extra, this look takes a three-prong approach to defining and bringing light to the face: one pearl barrette at the arch, and two more at the ends of the brows. Add blush, and you’re a lit-from-within Renaissance figure.

ASHLEY WILLIAMS

For days when doing *anything* is too much of a cross to bear, make the most of your rough-night texture by carving out a deep side part, then sticking in a rhinestone clip. Someone track down the “sex anxiety” one for me, eh?

MARCHESA

Whereas IRL, your evening options might be whatever you can scrounge up, in fashion, we’re moving toward a fully realized, matching Look. (See: an evening tote in the same fabric as your dress.) Similarly, Marchesa showed floral puffs of tulle tucked into loose hair.

FENTY

A bit less doable—but still possible, if you believe in yourself and have enough hair—here’s a shoelace-cum-bungee wound through the lengths of Rihanna’s motocross racers.
