12 summer hair accessories to brighten up your outfit

12 summer hair accessories to brighten up your outfit

As someone who’s constantly struck down by unruly hair days; hairbands, scrunchies and clips have become my accessory must-haves. Being obsessed with accessories of all shapes and sizes, this is a tall order, but hairpieces have grabbed the top spot in my arsenal. Silk scarves and anything sparkly can turn a plain outfit into a carefully considered look.

In the summer heat, hair goes limp, stringy, frizzy – basically, everything you don’t want. These light and breezy hair accessories will ensure a great hair day no matter what the weather (which, let’s face it, could be anything in Ireland).

The Polka Dot

River Island White polka dot knot headband, €13

Tap into the trend of the season with this adorable bow.

Bedazzled Satin

 

 

Mango Faceted crystal hairband, €19.99

Big, bold and coral in this Mango Alice band.

Starry Night

 

Accessorize Daisy Sequin Hair Scrunchie, £5.00

Although it says floral, we’re feeling Van Gogh vibes from this artistic Accessorize scrunchie.

 

Pink and Airy

 

H&M Patterned satin scarf €7.99

Channel the grandmother vibes in this soft floral satin scarf from H&M.

 

Blooming Beautiful

ASOS DESIGN Statement Colour Drench Orchid Headband, €13.83

What would this list be without a completely over-the-top option? Perfect for a summer wedding.

 

Flapper Vibes

Accessorize Gatsby Bando, £15

Pair with an equally intricate beaded dress, and you’re ready for this year’s summer garden party.

Statement Knot

Mango Metallic thread hairband, €15.95

Make an entrance while remaining comfortable in this Mango knot hairband.

Beaded Beauty

Pink pearl embellished hair band, €22

Pink, pearls and velvet. A girlier headband you will not find.

Minimalist

ASOS DESIGN Large Resin Triangle Hair Clip, €8.30

Resin has risen to popular new heights in the accessory world, and this marbled white hairclip is a perfect subtle peek.

 

The Colour of the Year

ASOS DESIGN Statement Graduating Flower Strand Headband, €16.59

Lilac shows no sign of going away, and this floral crown would look as much at home with a summer suit as it would with a gown.

Springy green and yellow

River Island Green leaf print scrunchie €6.00

Pair this scrunchie with a black blazer and slacks and let your personality shine through the office.
