10 beautiful—and festive—ways to accessorize your hair

A strategically placed hair accessory can upgrade your holiday outfit from pretty to stunning in a single swoop of hair. Check out our favourite embellished combs, pins, barrettes and headbands. 

If you’re holiday parties are overtaking most of your evenings during the month of December, planning your outfits can be downright stressful. Not to mention figuring out your hairstyles.

Do you consider yourself hair challenged? Or maybe you just don’t have time to wield a heat tool to give yourself a wavy style—really, who does!? If you’re not a hair whisperer and time is of the essence your best bet is to tap into hair accessories market. These embellished barrettes, bobby pins, elastic  and headbands can instantly adorn a ponytail or a half-up style in seconds. Consider these hair accessories as jewelry, each one adds polish and style to any hair cut, style or updo.

Not only is this a great idea for the holidays, but based on what came down the runways for spring/summer 2017 hair accessories are a major trend. We saw rosettes, ribbons and tulle barrettes adorning models’ styles at Rodarte, sleek and sculpted ponytails tucked into the ends with two sleek gold hair clips at Custo Barcelona and a thick black headband that gave a sporty look to models at the Creatures of the Wind show.

Let's face it, between holiday shopping and attending all these holiday bashes, finding a spare hour to style your strands isn’t going to happen. We’ve searched high and low and found the chicest hair embellishments. Each piece is guaranteed to flatter up and down styles alike, while adding an extra does of festive flair to any ensemble.
