What we love: When worn right, hair accessories can take a simple look, like a bun, ponytail or straight hairstyle, and give it major drama. It can also call more attention to that updo you spent hours creating — hey, whatever it takes to get people to notice your effort, right?
Try it at home: This is pretty simple. Stock up on headbands, barrettes, cool clips, whatever you love and incorporate them into your regular hairstyles. Our rule: The more elaborate the hair accessory, the simpler the hairstyle, and vice versa. A complicated updo paired with a giant bow headband is way too much … unless your name is Lady Gaga.
