The Best Hair Accessories for Spring and Summer 2018

The Best Hair Accessories for Spring and Summer 2018

Unlike years past, which didn’t give us a ton of variety in the hair accessory department, the 2018 spring shows were filled with new and exciting trends. Although a few hair accessory trends featured were a blast from the past (scrunchie anyone?), many were fresh, new takes on standard classics like barrettes and headbands.

Hair accessory trends for spring and summer span the style meters, so no matter what you’re wearing, you’ll be able to adorn your locks with one of the trendiest hair accessories this season.

Scrunchies

If the scrunchie was one trend you thought would never see the light of day again, you thought wrong. Scrunchies were everywhere this season thanks to Italian accessories designer Mansul Gavriel, who elevated the scrunchie to high fashion on his fall runway. For those wanting to relive this trend, it’s best to leave the knit scrunchie at home. Instead, look for scrunchies made of Italian leather and soft silks.

To keep the look on trend, keep your scrunchie loose and looped around a low ponytail. Refrain from keeping your locks too perfect – a messier ponytail is better.  

Bobby pins

If you’ve got some bobby pins lying around you haven’t used in a while then you’re in luck. Bobby pins were a huge hair accessory on the runways this season. Although the average bobby pin will do, many of the pins featured were made of gold or silver or had a metallic finish.

Join the trend by holding a few locks of hair back (just above the ear) with one single bobby pin or use 5 or 6 along the nape of the neck to create a more dramatic look.

Headbands

The headbands featured on runways this spring ranged in size and were more adorned than not. Concept Korea featured models wearing sportier version of headbands in comfortable knits while Dolce & Gabbana had models walk the runway with headbands adorned with toy cars and food.

No matter what style or size headband you decide to wear, keep hair simple so as to not distract from the headband.

Cloth ribbons and wraps

Design houses like Lanvin and Rochas used cloth ribbons and wraps to offer a new perspective on a somewhat basic hair accessory. Lanvin wrapped low ponytails from the base to almost the ends of the hair with the house’s signature silk scarves. Rochas used strips of fabric to create a “bubble” in the model’s ponytail.

To recreate this trend, place hair in a low ponytail. Tie a strip of fabric about 2 inches down from the base of the ponytail and let the ends of the fabric hang loose.
