5 Hair Styling Accessories to Try Now
Statement Hair Clips
Embellished hair clips are one of the hottest hair trends on Instagram. You can go more traditional and understated. Or take this look to the next level with rhinestone hair clips in the shapes of words — the blingier, the better!
Embellished hair clips make a major statement, which is why we like pairing this hair accessory with simple hairstyles like a lightly tousled bob or a sleek updo.
The halo headband is a modern update to a traditional headband. Instead of wearing this accessory over the top of your head, wear it around the back of your head. The result is both romantic and glamorous. We recommend pairing the halo headband with soft waves or a sophisticated chignon.
Embellished Hair Claw
Believe it or not, this retro hair accessory is actually back in style! The updated version of the hair claw is embellished in metallics or with interesting cut-out designs.
Not sure how to style your hair with a hair claw? Try this easy look. Start with clean, dry hair. Work a small amount of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir evenly through hair for extra body. Gather hair at the nape of the neck and twist up (like a French twist). Gently tug hair into place for a smoother, more uniform twist. Finally, use a hair claw to hold everything in place.
Another retro hair accessory that’s making a comeback, scrunchies are softer than traditional hair ties, so they won’t snag on your hair and cause breakage or frizziness. Plus, they generally cause less of a ponytail crease than elastic ties. If you like to sleep with your hair in a bun, try sleeping in a scrunchie for softer waves in the morning and less of a crease!
Next time you style your hair in a ponytail, swap out your hair tie for a scrunchie and see what a difference it can make to your look!
Dress up a regular braid with braid charms! These accessories are designed to clip onto braids, adding a floral, colorful, or sparkly and bling-y look. Just make sure you remove them before you go to sleep, as they can pull hair and cause breakage while you’re sleeping.
We love braid charms on Double Dutch braids. Begin by parting hair down the center and brushing hair to remove tangles. Then, evenly apply a small amount of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir through strands to give your braids extra body. Starting with one section, divide hair into three equal strands. Cross the right strand under the central strand, then repeat with the left strand.
Now, it’s time to start adding in hair to your braids. Add a small amount of the hair next to the braid to the right strand, then cross it under the middle strand. Repeat with the left strand. Continue until all your hair has been braided. Then secure with a hair tie. Repeat the process with the other section of hair. Finally, clip your braid charms into place!
Hair bows aren’t just for kids! A hair bow is a great way to dress up a regular ponytail, bun, or half-up hairstyle. The key to keeping this look grown-up is to select sophisticated colors and materials like black velvet. You can buy a ready-made hair bow, or visit your local craft store to DIY your own out ribbon in your favorite color or pattern to match your unique style.
