The right hair accessories can elevate your whole look with absolutely zero effort. We’ve rounded up some of the most popular accessories on Instagram right now for you to try.
Pearl Embellished Bobby Pins
Pearls are being re-imagined into hair accessories as embellishments that add a dainty touch of femininity and sophistication to any hairstyle. This summer we will be seeing an increase in pearl adorned hair accessories like these creatively designed pearl flower bobby pins. The pins are generally flat and wider than your usual bobby pin, so you can be sure that they will stay in place and provide you with the hold you are looking for. Easily add some flair to your OOTD post on Instagram with these or toss them alongside some other accessories in a flatlay for an aesthetic look.
Rhinestone Hair Pins
Rhinestones have a history of making the most basic outfit extra, but now they are spicing up hairstyles all over Instagram. While bedazzled hair accessories tend to look juvenile, these hair pins are far from childish. You can choose to wear a single piece to enhance your hairstyle with a touch of elegance, or stacked for an extra bold look that will turn some heads. Hair accessories are no longer just practical pieces to hold your hair in place; now you can use as many as you would like to amp up your style. Play around with placement and shapes to create new looks with these rhinestone hair pins.
Rhinestone Embellished Word Barrettes
The rhinestone embellished word barrette was made popular by Selena Gomez in a clapback heard around the world back in 2018 after Stefano Gabbana (one half of the famous Dolce & Gabbana) made a comment on a photo of Gomez calling her “ugly.” Soon after, Gomez was photographed wearing a barrette with the word “UGLY” emblazoned on it in rhinestones, and the rest, as they say, is history. Instagram models, lifestyle bloggers, and beauty lovers embraced the trend wholeheartedly, standing with Gomez (kudos to her for handling things so elegantly), and it has yet to die out. You can find many different variations of the barrette with just about every word in the dictionary so pick your favorites and make a statement!
Pearls have become such popular embellishments for hair accessories this summer that we had to include them twice on this list. Unlike their bobby pin counterparts, pearl embellished barrettes are meant to be more prominent. They are made in various sizes and shapes including this super popular rectangular version. Make a boring bun or messy ponytail fresh and eye-catching by popping a few of these in your hair. You can even mix and match them with other clips for some added pizzazz. Bonus style points if you can match them to your other accessories like earrings or a necklace!
Marble Hair Clips
Marble hair clips are another staple hair accessory right now. Generally, you can find them sold in pairs, and they come in a versatile amount of colors, so you’ll be sure to find some that will match your outfit. The best part is that you can pick up different colors, shapes, and sizes of these marble hair clips from the hair care aisle at your favorite store. Pop in a pair to keep your hair out of your face while spending the day picnicking in the park. Use them to tame stubborn stray hairs in a sleek style for work. The possibilities are endless!
