And no it’s not just because I’m re- watching Gossip Girl for the 56th time (promise.)
2019 is the year of the hair accessory. Don’t believe me? Look on Instagram and Pinterest right now, and you will see hoards of girls with diamante hair slides, large clips and headbands across your feeds.
It seems like we’ve all regressed to the early 00s. What’s next glitter hair spray and butterfly hair clips?
Does anyone remember those weird twisty things that were a nightmare to take out of your hair? I swear they always pulled out about half a head of hair with them, they should have been used as some sort of torture device. I will never bring those back that’s for sure.
So why are hair accessories a thing again? And why am I loving them right now?
Well first of all, I feel they jazz up an outfit. You guys know I love a boring outfit, and I feel a headband or hair clip can add to an otherwise simple look. In fact that’s when they look best.
They help to liven up your hair, bored of your everyday curls? Or want to add a little summin summin to your straight locks? Add a hair slide! Voila.
Headbands which yes I won’t lie, I’m loving again thanks to my re watching of Gossip Girl and my constant desire to be Blair Waldorf, but they also help to hide greasy hair, perfect for in between hair wash days, and my current fave, a black embellished headband (GIFTED) adds a girly touch to my outfits.
Blair Waldorf eat your heart out!
I mean the thing is, they’re so effortless but have a big effect.
I am loving hair slides and headbands the most and wearing them with most outfits. I am on the fence about the glittery word slides, I got this one from eBay and I can’t decide if I love it or hate it- what do you think?
Are you into the hair accessory trend right now or are you leaving it back in the 00s?
