Sometimes we often forget that updating our hairstyle doesn’t have to involve a drastic change like a new hair color, or a new short cut. While both of these ideas are super fun, hair accessories can also do the trick when you’re itching to try something different from the norm. Hair charms are our current go-to hair accessory for the summer season — they’re inexpensive, fun, and super easy to use.
This season, we challenge you to try your hand with these for different occasions. Yes, they are versatile too! Whether you want to update your protective style for the summer season or jazz up your hairstyle, here are three easy ways to wear hair charms.
How to Wear Hair Charms
1. Hair Charms on Braids
Braided hairstyles like box braids, whether mini or jumbo, are a great choice for the summer season if you want a protective hairstyle that doesn’t require much maintenance and is swim-friendly. Whenever you want to give your style an update, or style it for summer festivals, hair charms can do the trick. Search for charms that snap onto your braids, or the ones you can pin. Refresh your hair with a dry shampoo like Love Beauty and Planet Radical Refresher Citrus Peel Uplifting Dry Shampoo, then add one (or several) charms to your style, depending on your mood.
2. Space Bun with Hair Charms
We’ve already provided you with enough proof that space buns are for adults too and now we’re proving that fun hair accessories are as well. Update your style by sprinkling a few hair charms into your bun. To finish your look, smoothen hair with a shine serum like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to make your hair glisten just like your charms ✨. Dry hair and sparkly hair charms don’t make much of a good match!
3. The Runway Look
What style or hair accessory has the runway not adapted as of yet? We adore this spin on the hair charm accessory. Wear this look for fancy summer events like weddings, galas and more. To create the look, part hair down the center and smooth into place with Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel. Brush hair into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Snap some charms along the front section of your ponytail, framing your face.
