5 fun hair accessories to add flair to your holiday outfit
The details make all the difference, especially when it comes to personal style.
Here are five fun hair accessories to add flair to your holiday outfit—whether it’s the perfect, new dress that you want to play up, or simply jeans and a T-shirt that you want to make dressier for the occasion.
Rhinestone headbands are totally just tiaras that you can wear every day. Feel like a queen and dress up any look with this no-fail, easy-to-wear hair decoration—because crowns are not just for Elsa (or your 4-year-old who thinks she is Elsa). Find a beautiful rhinestone headband at Nordstrom for $16.
Borrow style from the most timeless beauty icon of all, Mother Earth, with nature-inspired accessories. Leaves, flowers and vines can all be seen on many hair accessories this winter.
For a more sophisticated appearance, look for natural designs with unnatural colors, like on this gold etched leaf headband at Forever 21 for only $4.90, or this sequin floral lace headband (above) at Nordstrom, $30. Or for a more feminine, boho spin, go with a color scheme that Gaia would approve of, like this rose “crown,” $5.90, at Forever 21.
Wrap it up with a bow
Bows are big. Not necessarily big bows, though. Small, sparkly, metallic and embellished bows are a sweet way to decorate your head for the holidays. Mix and match a flowy updo with a variety of patterns, fabrics and styles of bows, like these three opulent metallic hair clip bows from Forever 21 for just $2.80.
Chain your mane
Here’s something new this season that’s making a big impact: chain head pieces. Borrowing a little bling from India, these look edgy and sexy. Find various styles at Forever 21, like this medallion fringe head piece, or this layered chain head piece—both super inexpensive at $5.90.
Hide underneath a hat
Your crazy great aunt Flow knew the power of a pretty hat with her fancy Christmas attire. Take a tip from her and consider accenting your holiday get-up with a floppy wool and felt Topshop hat, like this one, $52, from Nordstrom. This Phase 3 gray wool hat, $32, (above) also has a classic look to it. The flop is where it’s at.
