With summer right around the corner (trust us, we’ve been counting down the days), we’ve been on the hunt for the trendiest hair accessories to rock when the warmer weather hits. We’ve looked to some of our favorite stylish stars for hair-spiration, as they are the ultimate trendsetters — and we’ve found a few must-wears for the long weekend.
First up is Reese Witherspoon, who clearly knows how to style a statement hat. Her casual, cool look is perfect for shielding against the sun while out and about running errands. To pull off the look yourself, wear hair loose and opt for simple accessories so the hat remains the focal point of the outfit. Two of our favorite styles to try: This $14.80 Forever 21 style and J. Crew’s $58 Panama hat.
Next is Emmy Rossum, wearing Coachella’s favorite headpiece: the flower crown. The sweet and flirty floral tiara is the go-to accessory worn at the Indio, Calif., music festival, but it can be easily worn outside of the bandstands and incorporated into your everyday look. Pair the fun crown with very few accessories accessories (as the crown is bold enough) and be sure to wear your hair down for a fully laid-back glam effect. (A breezy attitude helps pull this one off too.) Try it with Topshop’s $28 daisy garland or the Johnny Loves Rosie style for $66.69 on Asos.
And, of course, there’s Katy Perry, in a mod, stylish and more relaxed take on the classic headband. (Plus, the top-tied style is a little easier to pull off than the other star fave, the headwrap.) We love how easy and effortless this look is for summer – it will help keep flyaways (and sweat!) at bay in the humid, hot weather. For a fun, bold look, pair with the season’s hottest lip color: coral. Remington has a set of black-and-white wraps (2 for $5), and we also like L. Erickson’s black-and-white silk scarf headband.
Want to try something new in your tresses this season? We’ve seen tons of adorable hair accessories cross our desk, and it’s only a matter of time before we the stars are sporting them too. Get a jumpstart on the celebs by picking up one of our favorites, like these Ban.do bright bobby pins ($10 for 4), L. Erickson’s cool and colorful pony cuffs or a fun retro scrunchie from Topshop (Cressida Bonas would be so proud!).
What’s your favorite way to style your strands in the summer? Will you give any of these trends a try?
