Headbands vs. Barrettes

Hair accessories are a great way to spritz up your style with minimal effort. Today we look at two on trend accessories that are rattling down runways all over the world. So which accessory is your style – the Headband or Barrette? Vote now!

Headbands

While once reserved for Alice in Wonderland and little girls, headbands have matured to be an accessory for all ages... and we love them! Sophisticated headbands are a fantastic way to add elegance to any outfit, and can beautifully frame your face and tame wild hair at the same time. Traditionally associated with a prim and proper look, today headbands suit a range of styles and come in a variety of colours and fabrics - from silk, linen, plastic or even elastic!

If you're having trouble with your accessory du jour slipping in your hair, try adding some grip with a spritz of onto the barrette or headband itself, or you could also try incorporating a texturizing product like through your locks.

Barrettes

Barrettes have come back in a huge way this year. Versace's SS18 runway show reignited interest in the simple style with models sporting embellished metallic barrettes above their ears - super chic and sleek! A simple barrette adorning each side of your head is a great way to jazz up any outfit - with minimal effort which is always a win. Slide them in at the top of each ear and let the natural texture of your hair do the talking with looser locks. If your hair needs some taming, try incorporating an intense smoothing serum like from Tecni.Art through towel-dried hair and then blow-dry or leave to dry naturally.

So which accessory wins you over this week? Beautiful barrettes or hair taming headbands? Vote now in match the look!
