Carmen Beauty,

The Return of the Hair Accessory Trend

June marked the official start of summer and what better way to show off our enthusiasm for the season than to showcase some effortless looks you can create using accessories alone. This year has seen a surge in hair accessory styling, featuring everything from small resin based clips to chunky knotted headbands.

Chunky clips

Chunky hair clips are giving us serious glam vibes this year and can add the perfect design feature to keep your hair in place all day. Use to either clip hair beside your ear for a sleek, brushed back effect or clip to the side of a sleek ponytail. We’ve styled a large pearl embellished clip beside a high ponytail for instant style and glamour.

Hair scarf

Whoever first thought to interlace a scarf in with their hairstyle, we salute you! This look is great for working in with a classic plait, around a half top knot, and even in with a simple low ponytail. The hair scarf is so versatile when working in with various hairstyles and adds that little something extra to dangle around your tresses. We’ve used a bold pattern scarf for a splash of colour to set off a low ponytail.

Scrunchies

Originally gracing the fashion world in the 1980s, the scrunchie made a huge comeback in recent years and still remains firmly atop the shelves of most high street retailers. Silk and satin scrunchies are the latest handbag handy to have this summer, to add a splash of colour for a bold summer statement. This accessory is great for creating a snag free style with minimal effort. We’ve styled a distinct red scrunchie in with a sleek half up top knot.

Scarf detail scrunchies

Take your scrunchie game to a whole new level with the trailing scarf design that helps to add frame and structure to your chosen hairstyle. With a slight resemblance to the hair scarf, this accessory features a similar dangling trail, but on a much smaller scale. We’ve styled ours in a sleek low ponytail, perfect for holiday and festival styling.

Metal hair clip

With the rise of the metal hair clip trend, you can add a staple piece to glisten in your hair during those humid summer nights. An oversized metallic hair clip will add instant glamour and shine to your hair once the sun goes down. We’ve teamed a golden oversized leaf clip with a simple pinned back hairstyle.

Whatever your plans this summer, show off your hair by accessoring with this year’s in trend hair pieces. Have you got a hair accessory style you’d like to share with us? Follow our Carmen Instagram page and tag us in your upcoming hair inspo post.
