Retro Hair Accessories Are Trending. Here's How to Wear Them in 2019

We don’t know about you, but we barely have time in the morning to get dressed and down a cup of coffee, let alone break out the curling iron and do our hair to perfection. Luckily, just as casual fashion is reigning supreme, lazy-gal hairstyles are also majorly trending, and these four retro hair accessories are the chicest ways to feel done up with minimal effort. Here’s how to wear them the 2019 way.

6 Haircuts That Will Be Huge in 2019


Calling Blair Waldorf: It’s time for your return to power—at least when it comes to head gear. The modern version of the trend favors padded and embellished headbands over slim or dainty options. Basically, the bigger the better.

Who knew scrunchies could feel so fancy? Satin, silk and other upscale fabrics help this retro hair tie look more grown-up. Simply use them in place of your basic black hair ties for instant zhuzh.

Fancy Barrettes

Perhaps the laziest way to jazz up your hairdo is with a bejeweled clip. Pin your strands back with a few pearl-embossed clasps and suddenly your third-day hair looks fabulously chic.

Ribbons And Bows

There’s just something about bows that makes us feel infinitely more femme. It doesn’t matter if you like to fasten on a structured and pre-made version or if you prefer to tie a looser, more casual ribbon into your hair yourself. Just make sure it has a luxe finish like satin or velvet to keep it from feeling too young.
