Looking for hair accessories that are bound to be a crowd pleaser for the fall? We’ve got you covered. Read on for the top three versatile hair accessory trends for fall:

1. The Barrette

Ladies, it’s time to search for the good ol’ barrettes our parents used to place in our hair as children. Some of us hated it, and some of us loved it. There is indeed a resurgence of ’90s trends happening at the moment so you might as well hop on the bandwagon now. For a modern take on the accessory, we’re steering away from wearing multiple barrettes and sticking to just one. Use this accessory to lock a flyaway in place or simply to add a cute finishing touch to your hairstyle.

Editor’s tip: If you’re worried that the barrette will look a bit childish on you, consider pairing it up with a more grown-up style. A textured hairstyle with a clean center part has a mature vibe. Enhance the texture of your hair with Bed Head By TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray.

2. The Thick Headband

We talked about this headband trend before, but if we’re honest, we’re still obsessed. This is one of our favorite versatile hair trends because it can be worn anywhere and during any season. For the fall season, opt for classic hues like white or black, or autumnal hues like dark reds, greens and yellows to add a pop of color to your look.

3. The Bobby Pin

Yup, we’re definitely still doing the bobby pin thing because it works for any occasion. To keep it simple, give the colorful pins a rest and go for a cleaner look with black or gunmetal pins instead. The key to nailing this look is all about creating fun shapes or designs. Stack them up on top one another, or line them up in a single row.

Editor’s tip: If you need help keeping your bobby pin in place, spray it with a bit of holding spray like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4.The hairspray will create a gripping effect on the pin which prevents it from shifting throughout the day.

4. The Decorative Hair Pin
