Gorgeous and Grown-Up Ways to Wear Hair Accessories

Summer is just around the corner. Now that the weather is starting to get warmer, many of you are probably looking for chic ways to style your hair. It’s time to bring out those accessories to create simple yet stylish hairstyles.

Here are some gorgeous and grown-up ways to wear hair accessories.



When we talk of headbands, most people will conjure an image of a child wearing a bright-colored headband. Although, often associated with kids, this classic accessory can help elevate your look.

Headbands can help get your hair off of your face. This is why it is the go-to accessory of active women. If you want to add more of a dainty feel to your look, choose a headband with a delicate lace design.

Some women would tie their hair into a pony tail and then add the headband to keep their hair in place. But if you want a more girly look, start with a side pony tail. Braid your hair and then add the headband. This hairstyle will elevate a simple pony tail from ordinary to chic.


Just like the headband, most people tend to associate the barrettes to their elementary days. Some of you may have abandoned your barrettes, along with your character lunch bags and math homework. Well, it’s time to bring them out of storage. You can rock these accessories as adults.

Barrettes are the perfect blend of stylish and functional. Some people use small barrettes and clip them on the side of their head. That’s the classic way to wear them. But if you have the big ones, try using them as a hair clip instead. Pull your hair into pony tail and secure it with a barrette. If you have the sparkly version, better. This is going to add pizzazz to your look.

Embellished claw

Claw clips are a great accessory. They are ideal for busy women who don’t have time to do their hair. They are cheap, versatile, and available in a wide variety of shape and sizes.

Claw clips are perfect for creating a messy bun. Simply pull your hair up into a bun and clip your hair with a claw. This will make you look pulled together, minus the fuss. If you have medium length hair, the small claws are perfect for you. Simply grab a small section of your hair on each side, twist them towards the back of your head, and secure with a claw. This will be the grown-up version of your elementary ‘do.
