Hair Types

Hair accessories like hair clips, headbands, and bobby pins instantly jazz up your look. They’re also quick and easy to use in hairstyling. You simply have to clip them or tie them on your hair, and voila! You’re all set.

If you’re looking for more ways on how you can play around with hair accessories, then this tutorial is for you. Check out three easy looks that you can try.

How to Wear Hair Accessories: Headscarf

A headscarf is a versatile fashion item that you can use either to cover your head with or to wear as a headband or hair tie. You can even use it to jazz up a half updo! Here’s how.


Tie your hair

Gather a section of your hair from your hairline to your crown. Put this in a half ponytail. Use two hair ties to make your half ponytail high.

Add your headscarf

Tie a headscarf around the base of your half ponytail. Make sure that the hair ties are hidden. For a more fun and quirky look, use a patterned or colorful headscarf.

How to Wear Hair Accessories: Hair Clips

There are no hard and fast rules when wearing hair clips. You don’t even have to wear matching ones! Here’s how you can mix and match hair clips to create a fun and trendy look.


Curl your hair

Add volume to your hair by curling it with a curling iron. Clip the upper section of your hair first so it doesn’t get in the way, then wrap a section of hair around your curling iron. Continue until all sections of your hair have been curled.

Loosen your curls

Brush your hair lightly to make loose, beachy waves. You can also use your fingers.

Wear your hair clips

Mix and match hair clips and put them all on one side of your hair. Place one just past your hairline. Then, place one at ear level and another one just below it. And you’re done!

Hair Accessories: Half Updo With Clip

You can also add a hair clip to another hairstyle as a finishing touch. Here’s how.


Tie three sections of your hair

Get a small section of hair from your left and right side. Take another one from your hairline to your crown. Tie each of them into a small ponytail using hair elastics.

Flip them

Create a small gap above each of your hair elastics. Flip each ponytail and insert them into the gaps. Then, pull up some hair from the ponytails to add volume to your hairstyle.

Tie them all together

Combine all your ponytails at the back of your head using an elastic. Now, you have a triple looped half updo.
