Beauty trend: Hair accessories

From Grecian bands and floral clips to the oh-so-Middleton fascinator, we are loving this warm weather accessory.

Save your distressed summer tresses from any extra heat and styling and opt for a hair accessory instead. From Grecian bands and floral clips to the oh-so-Middleton fascinator, this trend of gorgeous headwear is simple and pretty, and a bad-hair-day lifesaver. It’s great idea for humid days when the last thing you want is sticky, itchy hair on your neck and face.

Try this look: Create a middle part and pull hair back into a simple braid or messy bun at the nape of your neck. Before securing with an elastic band, shake your hair a bit loose allowing for some strands to fall out as they would naturally – especially around the face. Use a single clip to pull back hair on one side for the retro vibe, or a full headband like Mila for the goddess look.
