Office-Friendly Costumes: 5 Metallic Accessories We Love

Add a little bling to your 'do with some eye-catching hair candy.

We all need a little more sparkle in our lives. Hair accouterments, like gorgeous metallic accessories, can make that happen in a flash: You can go from an otherwise typical hair day to one with a little more pizzazz, particularly if you’re looking for some last-minute Halloween costume ideas that are also practical and easy enough to wear to the office (no distracting fake blood or angel wings!).

The beauty of this trend is that you can opt for something subtle, like a thin metallic headband, or really go for it by rocking a huge metallic beaded clip. It’s totally up to you! And we just love how they allow you to change up your look without going for a dramatic chop or huge color change.

Read on to discover some of our favorite metallic accessories that are sure to help you shine this year:

Totally glam and ready with this chic look.

1. Flapper-Style Band

We are all about vintage hairstyles, and this chic Flapper headband will definitely have you looking the part. A fun style to try this Halloween (or any day, really) where you can opt for sleek, straight hair that’s taken up a notch with this jeweled accessory.

A subtle headband packs a punch.

2. Beaded Head Chain

Go for a subtle hair enhancement with a beaded head chain. This look is stunning on wavy hair, and it helps you accentuate your ringlets with a romantic touch. Finish off with a slight misting of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 for a bit of natural control.

3. Headband Veil

Who says that you have to be a bride to rock a veil? Go for this regal, kind of vintagey-glam look for a night out or for your next special occasion, and pair a metallic headband veil or fascinator with the color of your dress. You’ll definitely be the talk of the party with this daring hair accessory idea.

4. Jeweled Clip

Hair clips can go a long way to add some sparkle to your hair. We love this look on long hair, and it helps give your locks a subtle twist when placed near the hairline.

5. Metallic Headband

We love ourselves a great, season-appropriate look of a harvest goddess leaf metallic headband. After you brush your hair, wear the band a few inches near the crown of your head, and let some loose pieces frame your face.
