Broaching the subject of how to liven up that hair-do can be tedious but these 10 hair accessories of 2019 are a quick way to go from drab to glam. It’s frustrating having to think of how to brighten up your hair without putting it through 300 degrees of curling iron torture, thankfully these hair accessories are as quick and easy as they are visually stimulating and affordable.

We’re reclaiming all the accessories we used to live in as children and giving them a grown-up spin!

Because who doesn’t love a Blaire Waldorf moment sans the volatile Chuck Bass relationship. The beauty of the headband is that it’s a quick way to elevate a look with minimal to no effort, a real win-win situation for a gal on the go. An extra upgrade of these headbands is that they are made of silky goodness so you won’t have to worry about throbbing temples by the end of that day *shudders*.
