6 Hair Accessories to Spice Up Your Look

1. Extensions

Extensions are a great way to make your hair seem fuller. These are often used by those with medium to short hair or those that have fine hair. If you’re looking for product options, try the clip in extensions from Diamond Dynasty Virgin Hair. Many people like this brand for its monthly installment plan, so they never run out of extensions. Clip-in extensions like this are easy to use by yourself when you’re getting ready at home. You might also explore sew-in, micro link, or other varieties until you find the one you like.

2. Flower Crowns

Flower crowns have exploded in recent years. They are a common sight at festivals, concerts, weddings, and other celebrations. They make a great addition to a casual look in which you wear your hair down or in an updo, This type of accessory can technically be worn all year long, but we think that they’re most fashionable during the spring and summer months. You can plan to wear one at a special event or to simply brighten up your favorite sundress.

3. Headwraps and Scarves

Headwraps and scarves are great resources for fun and fast styles. Wrap them around your head and tie them in various ways to create your desired look. Wraps vary in length, color, width, and texture, so you’ll have to experiment when you use different ones. This type of accessory can add a great pop of color to any outfit or even cover up a bad hair day.

4. Barrettes and Clips

Barrettes and small hair clips can be used to secure different sections of your hair to create a new look. Even if you only use them to get your hair our of your eyes, it can make a world of difference in your appearance. You can play around with vibrant and decorative ones as well that will match your outfit for the day and your personality.

5. Pins

Pins are great for securing complicated styles in place and to make simple ones look neater. They are especially great if you want to wear buns and other formal styles. You should always have a dependable supply of pins around. Of course, none of us want to admit how easy it is to lose track of those tiny things (seriously, where do they all go?)

6. Combs

If you didn’t already know it, you can use small combs, often referred to as French combs, to create beautiful updos and to move your hair around to different spots. Using them takes some practice, so you may not get the look you want the first few times around. The teeth on these small combs will lock your hair into place when they are in the correct direction.
