Spicing up Basic Hair

Hey, pretty girl!

We all have those bad hair days where seemingly nothing can fix it. Thankfully, with the recent hair accessories trend, there is a way to cover up the frizziness, greasiness or down right basic-ness of our hair.  

Headbands: These are the best way to hide flat and lifeless hair. It’s super easy to give your hair a bounce with a headband thrown in. Bonus : you can pull off a Blair Waldorf look.

Hair Scarves: There are two major types of hair scarves – bandana & scrunchie. I prefer the bandana scarves, as it’s easier to tighten for thin hair. Madewell has a variety of bandana options and Lulu’s has a classic black/white striped scrunchie hair scarf. The how-to on tying a bandana scarf will be on my Instagram stories!

Butterfly Clips: Butterfly clips are the perfect way to add color and fun to a basic outfit. They are also one of my favorites because they hold very well even with thin hair! Whether your style is classic chic or trendy, there is a butterfly clip to go along with it.

Scrunchies: Scrunchies have made their come-back in recent years (if you’re reading this, I  love you Peter Kavinsky), and there needs no explanation why! These are way better for your hair than elastic and add a fun pop of color to your ponytail or half up/half down hairstyle. If you’re looking for Satin scrunchies to sleep in, classic neutrals or animal print, Ulta is the way to go.

Hair Clips: Bobby pins/clips detailed with shapes, words, diamonds, and pearls have also been hitting the shelves at a lot of major retailers. You can find high end pieces at Revolve and Anthropologie, or opt for the classy but affordable Amazon and (in-store) Five Below dupes.
