From the unapologetic glamour of diamonds flowing through your tresses, to the fashion kudos that accompanies a simple fabric bow, we’ve rounded up the most statement-making ways to accessorise your hair this season. Which style tribe are you?
A SMATTERING OF JEWELS
Inspired by the ostentatious glamour of the ’80s club it shares a name with, New York brand AREA gave new meaning to bejewelled tresses for AW19. Model’s wore crystal and polished brass hairpieces which worked in synergy with their partings and ponytails. The look is ultra feminine and inherently glam. Perfect with an LBD or sleek black tuxedo.
ADD A BOW
Romance is always in the air at Emilia Wickstead and her ultra pretty, feminine take on fashion seems to be contagious. This season, bows were the accessory to take away – they were placed on top of wool hoods and elsewhere hair was separated into big bow-esque up-dos and accessorised with, you guessed it, more bows. Never has the humble knot looked to elegant. The fact that she also decked model’s hair in bows for SS20 means this is a hair accessory with staying power.
POP A HAIR CLIP IN YOUR PONY
Over in New York, the Oscar de la Renta show championed the revival of another old favourite. Here, hair clips were used to add a focal point at the top of a sleek ponytail. Most were vintage- inspired, like a brooch. Some took shape as clusters of diamante, others formed a row of gold coin-like pieces with debossed historical figure heads – classic jewellery gets a new lease of life.
TURN TO TURBANS
The Kate Spade AW19 showed silky satin turban-like hats topping models heads. While the clothes – flares and dresses in colourful leopard and floral prints – sang off a ‘70s-inspired song sheet, the headgear seemed to have a decadent ‘40s influence while still managing to be young at heart. For unapologetic glamour coordinate your turban with your dress à la Kate Spade. This will be the ultimate go-to accessory for the insanely glamorous.
OPT FOR A HAIRBAND
They have the royal stamp of approval, with everyone from Queen Rania of Jordan to The Duchess of Cambridge stepping out in a headband. But this prim accessory has been calling for a high fashion make over. Cue, Shrimps. The British brand nailed playful yet glamorous winter dressing by teaming pretty square necked, ruched-sleeved dresses with fuzzy faux fur headbands. Perfection.
