While I love a good hair ribbon, I usually just leave my hair down or wear a boring ponytail holder. If anything.
Except right now, I feel like hair accessories are having a moment and I’m kind of loving it. I haven’t purchased anything too crazy, but I feel like it’s only a matter of time. I am usually pretty low involvement when it comes to my hair. I remember being in middle school, all of the girls in my class would redo their ponytails and half-up-half-downs a hundred times a day. I would do my hair in the morning and would not touch it until I got home from school, lest I make a ponytail with bumps or something awful like that 😉
I have a few scrunchies with tails from J. Crew that I bought to wear to the beach; I love them. (They’re old, but this scrunchie is similar.) I really hadn’t worn them outside of a beach or pool environment. But I’ve been slowly loving the scrunchie trend. My mom bought me one of these silk scrunchies and it’s absolutely amazing for pulling hair back into a ponytail or bun without leaving marks or causing breakage. I show it in action in my latest Youtube video. If you’re a fan of Liberty London florals, J. Crew has cute floral scrunchies!
But you know who is killing the hair accessory game right now? Anthropologie! I popped into the store while walking around Hoboken one day and could have spent $100 on hair accessories. I didn’t end up buying anything because I could feel the impulse that I would spend too much and get way more than I truly needed. I had to share though because I was obsessed with everything.
I’m really into these colorblocked tortoiseshell headbands and these color striped tortoiseshell clips. I think I’m going to go back and get those because they’re fun and practical. Even more picks (seriously so cute, good luck choosing a favorite!).
