Functional and Fashionable Spring Hair Accessories to Try This Season

by Caroline Grace


New season, new spring hair accessories. The arrival of spring is always a great opportunity to test out a few fresh style updates, and there’s no reason you can’t focus on your hair as one of your big changes. After all, a great hairdo completes your entire outfit. Just think how different your look would be if you opted for an updo instead of curls or a ponytail instead of plaits. Read on for more and consider these styles this spring.

Say Yes to Ponytails

The ponytail is, of course, a classic look, but there are details to note for spring. Bows are a huge trend this season, and finishing off your bouncy ponytail with a ribbon or silk scarf bow is very on-trend and appropriate for multiple occasions. For the office, try a single-color bow or scrunchy for an ’80s feel. For a spring wedding or a day at the races, why not tie it up with a patterned scarf? Or, for a look inspired by the catwalk, try tying multiple bows down the length of the ponytail in a nod to the style’s equestrian roots. It’s so quick and easy to do in the morning but makes a huge impact.

Experiment with Scarves

Beyond being used for great bows, the scarf could actually be one of the most versatile hair accessory pieces this spring. It can deliver as a knot, fold over into a stunning headband, or be worn as a headscarf or wrap, depending on the occasion and what you feel works with your outfit. Pick something with a subtle pastel pattern to start you off for spring and escalate toward even more colorful, vibrant styles when on your summer holiday. Go for a bold print scarf with an otherwise monochrome outfit to allow the pop of color and pattern in your hair to be the focal point.

Stock Up on Clips

Barrettes and hair slides are no longer reserved for kids—and they will beautifully punctuate any adult hair style this spring. The key is to choose something in a sophisticated material. Pearl-look clips, resin bars, and velvet Alice bands are all chic and expensive-looking, and they will turn an otherwise young look into something that works for any age. When it comes to how many to apply, pick either one statement piece or two matching clips to keep the look subtle (and to avoid looking like a jewelry box explosion).

Try a Half-Up Style

It’s a small tweak, but if you’re someone who would typically wear your hair down every day, why not try tying half up for a change? Using a chic accessory, like a scarf as a bow, can completely transform an outfit. Simply divide the hair at the crown away from the rest of the body, and secure it with the tie of your choice.

Switching up your hair style is perhaps one of the easiest ways to update your overall look. There are so many fun, on-trend spring hair accessories to try, so take the opportunity this season to experiment and see what works for you.
