Popular Hair Accessories for Women

Dreaming of a trendy new hairstyle? Before you reach for the scissors, consider shaking up your look with these trending hair accessories instead. Below, get inspired and learn how to style the most popular hair accessories for women.


Scrunchies are officially BACK. Whether you rocked these hair accessories throughout the 80s and 90s or are trying them out for the first time, hair scrunchies are an absolute must-have. Not only are they a great way to make a fashion statement, they are also super comfortable and gentle on your hair.

Wrap a scrunchie around a loose topknot, use it to tie back a low ponytail, or slip it over your wrist as a colorful accessory. There are so many colors, materials, and cute patterns to choose from: leopard scrunchies, velvet scrunchies, floral scrunchies, and more.

Pearl Hair Accessories

Pearls for your hair? Yes please! Pearl-encrusted hair clips, headbands, and other hair accessories for women may have gotten their start on the fashion runways, but this trend has proven to be extremely wearable for so many occasions. For instance, this pearl scrunchie is an easy way to dress up a slicked back ponytail. Similarly, you will be turning a lot of heads with this velvet pearl headband.

Oversized Hair Clips

Gone are the days of attempting to perfectly match your hair accessories with your hair color; these days, it’s all about standing out rather than blending in. Oversized barrettes and hair clips are the perfect example of this hair trend: they were designed to make a statement.

Take these rose gold extra large gold snap clips—they would make a stylish finishing touch to practically any look, whether you are running errands or heading out on a date. Craving even more bling? Snap your hair into shape with these statement-making rhinestone hair clips.

Curious about those spiral hair ties you have been seeing everywhere? Allow us to introduce you to Teleties, your new must-have hair accessory. Unlike traditional hair bands, Teleties hair ties don’t stretch out, break, or rip out your hair when it’s time to let your hair down.

They are perfect for simple ponytails or buns, but also for more elaborate hairstyles like braids and twists, half-up hairdos, pull-through ponytails, space buns, and more. Choose from a wide assortment of colors, from these sparkly Teleties to tortoise shell Teleties.

 Knotted Headbands

Headbands have been around for a long time, but knot headbands are currently having a major moment. These super cute hair accessories are chic, sophisticated, and perfect for taming flyaways or hiding unwashed roots. Channel your inner Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl with this ultra preppy plaid knot headband. This velvet knot headband also incorporates one of our favorite previously mentioned hair accessory trends: pearls!

Hair Scarves

Hair scarves are an easy way to add elegance and style to your look. They are lightweight and flowy, making them a great way to cover up oily strands or tie back an unruly mane. The styling options are endless, from ponytails and braids to half-up hairstyles. 

You can even tuck and twist the ends of the scarf into your hair for a super sophisticated (yet surprisingly easy to achieve) look. We love this multi-colored three-pack of scarf scrunchies.
