Get Inspired By the Can’t-Miss Hair Accessory Trend of the Summer

The budget-friendly trend of the season.

A bad hair day used to result in a rushed choice between a messy bun or opting for the always-dependable baseball cap. And while there’s nothing wrong with either of these choices, the summer hair accessory trend has presented an alternative worth noting. We’ve gathered some inspiration for how to get in on this super Insta-worthy look. Trendy accessories are everywhere this season! So grab some hair clips and scarves and get ready to style:

1. Woven Scarf

Upgrade the classic three-strand braid by weaving a scarf into your plait. Be sure to pancake the braid by using your fingers to spread the hair apart and to give the scarf some volume. This way you can ensure that the pattern is visible peeking out from your braid.

2. Safety Pin Clips

With the revival of such a 90s inspired trend, this summer is the time to try those kitschy clips of years past. This set of safety pin clips is just the answer. Set your curls with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Smooth Hold Level 2 to give them a smooth finish. Loose curls are the perfect backdrop for this hair accessory trend.

3. Sparkly Statement

Gemstone clips are the best way to use this trend to make a sparkly statement. You can create customizable clips online or find a sassy message that suits the vibe you’re going for.

4. Something Sweet

If you find a set of different style clips, we can almost guarantee pearls will be included in the mix. Pearl-studded accessories are huge this season and we love the sweet touch they add to any style.

5. Put a Bow On It

When in doubt, put a bow on it. Many hair ties include pre-tied bows sewn onto them. That means that you can throw your hair into a ponytail with an instantly chic result.
