Remember back in 2006 and 2007 when chunky headbands were all the rage?! I do because I rocked the shit out of those things pretty much daily.
I had this super adorable with patent leather one with a little bow on it and if it matched my outfit, or closely went with whatever I was wearing that day, I added that headband before I left for school that day.
Unfortunately, I tossed the headband when I left for college but it's fine because I've moved on up with the hair accessory world and am going to share some of my faves.
I already talked about the hair rings here, but if you aren't a fan of them, a hair cuff is a nice way to play on that look but with less effort.
I bought these babies from Walgreens a few weeks ago and have been dying to test them out. The nice thing is they are adjustable so they can be used for thick and thin hair. I have long hair but it's layered so I tried this bubbly ponytail look I luuuh on my cousin because I knew how full the style would look. She has the curliest, thickest, most gorgeous set of locks on the block and agreed to model them for me.
The next two were purchased from ASOS. The first is another hair cuff with a leaf accent. I've used this a few times now and loved how well it complimented my look. Twice I've used it with half up, half down looks and once with a full top knot. I will say this particular hair clip is a bit small so it looks better with smaller top knots. My full top knot was almost too big for it. It's something to think about when you're trying different ones and different styles. Also, I really want to try some DIY ones I found online. We'll see if I make the time and effort (haha).
The second ASOS accessory is an updated headband look I love. Hair crowns. I found quite a few on ASOS and I made one a few weeks ago and they are always a fun surprise when people notice them on the back of your head.
Lastly, I'm takin' it back to the 80s with a hair comb! I love how little effort it takes to add one to you hair, but how big of an impact they make. I really feel like a classy biotch when I add them to the side of my head. It makes me feel like I'm an 80s movie star. The one pictured below, I just got glued a string of metal spikes with jewels onto a plastic hair comb I found at Walgreens. There are so many fun embellishments that can be added to hair combs!
