Hair Embellishment for Every Hair Length
Come the cooler months, we’re normally thinking about covering our heads with beanies and toques, but that’s not the case this season. From ornate headbands at Dolce & Gabbana to star clips at Rodarte, this fall the runways were adorned with hair accessories. Whether you want to add a little—or a lot—of extra sparkle, here are my suggestions on the best hair accessories for your hair length.
When it comes to showing off your crop, less is definitely more. Your short style is the perfect canvas for showing off the trend so look for more delicate accessories as they will make just a strong of a statement. Take inspiration from Emma Watson and look for a jeweled broach or a fun barrette. Play around with the position of the clips, and don’t be afraid to group a cluster of different shapes and sizes together for a bold look.

Whether you have a sleek bob or curls, a headband will work on your mid-length hair. To stay on trend, opt for a more decorative style with interesting details such as beading or jewels, as opposed to a traditional fabric or leather version. Wear your hairband closer to your forehead like Nicole Richie to better show it off, or tease your hair and wear it further back for a 1960s take on the trend.

To ensure your accessory doesn’t get lost in your lusciously long locks, try incorporating it into an updo. Dress up a basic pony by adding a metallic ponytail holder, or try adding a broach or clip to your bun. And don’t feel you need to limit yourself to just hair accessories. Dig through your jewelry box for something to add that extra sparkle to your look, a la Kim Kardashian, who added a chain to her ponytail.
