IT’S TIME TO ACCESSORIZE (CATHERINE ZETA JONES + DOUTZEN KROES + BELLA HADID)
In our last blog we briefly touched on hair accessories but they are going to be huge in the upcoming year so lets talk a bit more about them. Often times you can feel like your hair is lacking something. It just didn’t curl right that day or you’re due for a cut. It’s time for a color appointment and your bangs are in your eyes. Don’t stress I have a couple hair hacks for you while still being stylish and on trend. Lets dive into a few ways you can incorporate them into your everyday looks.
As we’ve mentioned countless times the revival of different time periods has been a major influence in fashion as well as hairstyles. Scrunchies were best remembered for their times wrapped around the ponytails of 80’s sitcom stars. You’re thinking Saved by the Bell and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, right? Close, but not quite. Think the same hair accessory but more modern. We won’t be pairing this hair tie with big perms and teased bangs. Instead, think of a low loose pony like the ones pictured below from the runway this season at the Mansur Gavriel show. This look is effortlessly cool while being super low maintenance. Catherine Zeta Jones is another perfect example of how scrunchies can be made chic, modern, and truly used as an accessory. In the photo of her below she opts for her coat, sunglasses, and scrunchie all in a deep wine color for a stunning monochromatic look.

Remember how we talked about grown out bangs? Bangs are great while you have them but growing them out can be an absolute pain. After a while they turn into an awkward length and you’re unsure of how to style them or get them out of your face. Barretts are back and better than ever. Basically just glorified bobby pins these hair accessories can make you look fashion forward even if you are just trying to keep your hair out of your face. Barretts were huge on the runway this year as well, see the photo supermodel Doutzen Kroes from the Versace Spring 2018 show below. The golden clips add a perfect accent while keeping the hair away from the face and looking sleek and clean.

This last accessory is a last resort so don’t pull this one out unless it is a complete disaster of a hair day. Hats have been huge this year and will continue to keep their place in the fashion world heading into the new year. Whether it be a classic baseball cap, a newsboy hat, or even a beret, you can still have style with minimal effort. Hats can really top off an outfit and push it over the edge so don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone and experiment with a new style.
