Grab your Headbands, Hair Accessories are back!

By: Melanie Capruso

As an avid online shopper (well to be honest, both online and in store…it’s possibly a problem), I’m always looking for small items to bump me up for free shipping. I scour the accessories tab on every website looking for the right item. Usually, I stick to the sunglasses and scarves section, but I’ve started to notice some new inventory in other sections. There has been a sudden influx of hair accessories. From headbands and bows to scrunchies and clips, hair accessories are everywhere!

These aren’t just available online as well. I’m seeing so many stores also up their hair accessories selection. They are no longer just a last minute grab while waiting on line to pay. They are getting their own dedicated section in stores like Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, J Crew, and many others. This trend is also being acknowledged in fashion publications like Vogue, Man Repeller, and Who What Wear. They’re officially back!

It feels like it was only yesterday that any type of hair accessory was seen as childish and frumpy. I know I personally used a headband everyday in 7th grade to push back my ill-conceived bangs (whoever convinced me to get bangs with my curly hair was truly out to ruin me). However, the bad reputation of hair accessories was only a trend of the past 5 – 7 years. Hair accessories used to be a way to add a little something extra to any look. The 90’s were all about the scrunchies and the butterfly clips. Everyone had the chunky, fabric hair tie on their wrist waiting to be used, or the glittery plastic clips in their hair.

The early 2000’s saw the rise and fall of the bandana. From Mary Kate and Ashley to J.Lo and Cheetah Girls star, Kiely Williams. You couldn’t turn on the television without seeing a young starlet with a bandana on.

But speaking of television, the queen of hair accessories graced our television screens in September 2007, Blair Waldorf. Blair was the headband queen and set the hair accessory trend that lasted for years. Her headbands were seen as chic and sophisticated. Every young girl who wanted to emulate Blair and her style quickly put on a fabric headband. They weren’t used to hide a bad hair day, but were added to her already perfectly coiffed hair. Her headbands were the cherry on top of the sundae. They tied together her look and the new trend of hair accessories is doing the same thing.

Delicate bows and patterned scrunchies are the perfect way to compliment a simple outfit without adding too much. What’s your verdict?

    Hey! I recently desired to ask if you happen to possess trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and so i wound up losing months of perseverance as a result of no back up.
    Have you got any methods to prevent hackers?
