6 Best Hairstyles for Hair Rings for 2019

Say "I do" to the hair rings trend.  

If you’re anything like us, you’ll love a good hair trend, but not the commitment that sometimes comes with them. From tangerine hair to rainbow buzzcuts, many hair trends either require lots of maintenance or sacrificing hard-earned length – but with the hair rings trend, you get simplicity and style all in one!

Now, we know hair rings aren’t exactly new, but our favourite celebrities certainly can’t get enough of them. We also predict it will be one of the hottest hairstyles at festivals this summer (and beyond!), so it’s time you took note…

Ariana Grande was one of the first celebrities to wear hair rings in her tresses and over the weekend the singer wore the look once again. Sticking to her signature Rapunzel-length ponytail, Ariana rocked three braids; one down the centre and one on both sides, added large silver hair rings to complete the look.


Editor’s tip: Keep your style in place all night long, stop flyaways and give your hair a lovely shine by finishing your look with a spritz of the VO5 Tame & Shine Spray.

Hair chameleon Katy Perry has served up every hairstyle imaginable, from blue hair to a super short pixie cut – the singer can do no wrong.

And for her Rise video, Katy wore her dark tousled mane with hair rings, added to a single braid at the front. The important thing to remember about the hair rings trend, is that it’s all about adding an edge to a simple hairstyle, all with minimum effort – just what we like. Credit: @katyperry

4. Shay Mitchell’s upside down braid with hair rings

Shay Mitchell looks incredible wearing her long black tresses in this twisted, messy bun hairstyle. But what really makes this ‘do stand out, is the actress’ single braid up the back of her hair.

While a braided bun is stunning just as it is, adding gold hair rings like Shay turns this look into a real style statement.

5. Rita Ora’s side braid with hair rings

A fauxhawk may be a bold enough hairstyle for most of us, but not for Rita Ora, oh no! The singer sees your one hairstyle and raise you two. Not only has she create a stunning fauxhawk in the centre of her hair, but she has also woven a tight braid on the side of her head, adding in tiny hair rings for a discreet extra touch!

If it’s a case of go bold or go home, Kim Kardashian is not one to go home. The TV personality went all out with this cornrow hairstyle, which stopped us in our tracks. However, as much we love her cornrows, it is really the hair rings that pull this whole look together.

Tip: The hair rings trend looks great on all braided hairstyles, from box braids to marley twists, so it’s time to invest!
