Now that 2016 is officially underway, hair trends for the year are beginning to emerge. Along with new trends in hair colors and styles, 2016 is shaping up to be the year of the hair accessory. It makes perfect sense, too. Hair accessories are a fun and easy way to freshen up your look. We've collected five accessories you'll want to use this year.
When we say headband you are probably thinking back to the headbands you wore as a kid. Well, that's not what we’re talking about. There is a plethora of new headband offerings on the market, and this year is all about multi-strap, thinner options. To rock them with style, utilize a stretchy headband when rocking an updo. Simple create a slightly messy style, then add a stretch headband.
Jeweled Hair Clips
Clips are generally thought of as a utilitarian method of holding hair in place, but they can inject style into your 'do, too. Make an already romantic style truly feminine by using a jeweled clip. Experts suggest pairing jeweled clips with a loose, side braid.
The Ponytail Holder
The ponytail is no longer just for the gym. You can achieve a super sleek ponytail that is perfect for a day in the office or a night on the town with the right accessories. To do this, you'll want your hair perfectly straight. Secure the ponytail into place with a thick leather ponytail holder, or a metal ponytail cuff.
Floral-Inspired Hair Accessories
Whether in the form of clips, barrettes or headbands, floral is making its way into just about all hair accessories. To pull off this style without looking juvenile, add just a touch of floral charm to your style. To keep headbands from looking too childish, pair them with messy up 'dos. Clips can be worn to hold ponytails in place, or to secure a half up, half down 'do.
The Classic Bobby Pin
Everything old is new again, eventually, and that is true for the classic bobby pin. Use bobby pins in a multitude of different colors to secure side-swept hair. This look is chic, classic, and sure to flatter just about any style.
