Upgrade your hair game this season with an embellished bow or a crystal covered headband
There’s something about a well-placed hair accessory that makes you feel instantly pulled-together. With the power to elevate a ponytail, amp up a messy bun or play up your natural hair texture, hair accessories are the finishing touch that can pull a whole look together with minimal effort. And the good news is, hair accessories have come a long way since the days of butterfly clips and scrunchies. Here are the pieces you need to update your holiday hair this festive season.
Handmade in Brooklyn, New York and set on a clip fastening so that it stays perfectly in place, Jennifer Behr’s faux pearl-embellished velvet hairclip should be worn with swept-back tresses or to accentuate a sleek ponytail.
After spotting some of the brand’s cool crowns and slides on the likes of Lupita Nyong’o and Yara Shahidi, Net-a-Porter asked Lelet NY to design an accessories capsule just for them. This gold-plated headband is embellished with a rainbow of Swarovski crystals in all different shapes and sizes and would look great teamed with a head of soft waves.
Show off your appreciation for Gucci’s vintage allure with this crystal-embellished headband, which is set on an elasticated ribbon and glistens with crystal-encrusted silver-tone monograms and filigree hearts. You can wear yours with both up and down hairstyles for a touch of glamour.
Christie Nicolaides collection of handcrafted hair accessories combines functionality with refined opulence. The Fiorella hair clip is handcrafted from gold-plated brass and features a floral design that’s further enhanced by a freshwater baroque pearl. Wear it as a regal accent on braided hair.
Miu Miu’s opulent and girlish style meets in the middle for this crystal-embellished headband. Covered in pink satin, this two-band design will add a touch of glamour to your festive looks.
For its latest collection, South Korean brand 1064 Studio references classical jewellery, but updates them in a truly fresh and modern way. This hairclip is hand-cast from gold-plated silver in a semi-circlular shape and engraved to enhance the way it shimmers in the light. It would look perfect nestled into a loose updo.
