Getting ready in the morning is not limited to putting on a chic dress and applying flawless makeup; perfectly set hair is key to completing your look. Besides, you need to look presentable and be ready for anything (or anyone!) throughout the day. The heat and humidity often cause limpness, frizz and flyaways in our mane and throw our impeccable hairstyle out of whack. Carry these hair accessories in your beauty bag to keep all your strands in place and ensure that your hairstyle looks just as perfect by the end of the day as it did in the morning:
1. Bobby Pins
On most days, a bobby pin is the ultimate savior; they have the power to transform a bad hair day into a fabulous one! Whether your strands are out of control due to the wind or you just want to get your hair off your face and back due to the heat and humidity, you can rely on bobby pins to manage, set and style your tresses just the way you want.
You can create a bunch of hairstyles with bobby pins, without even looking into the mirror. Pull off a chic half-up hairstyle or create a quick chignon – all you need is a couple of bobby pins to tuck your loose strands in place and sport an incredible hairstyle in a matter of minutes. What's more – visible bobby pins are in vogue these days, so instead of concealing them, you can create interesting patterns to add a nifty touch to your hairstyle!
2. A Scrunchy or Hair Elastic
Scrunchies comes extremely handy on busy days when your hair is the last thing on your mind. These hair elastics not only keep your tresses out of your way but also help you create quick and easy hairstyles. If you have medium-length to long hair, just tie it up in a high or a low ponytail, a braid or a top knot. With this must-have hair accessory in your purse, you have the flexibility to decide when to wear your hair up and when to let it down!
3. A Headband
Frankly, a headband has outgrown its reputation as a hair accessory and become more of a style fixture. We saw loads of hairstyles with headbands at the last Fashion Week, which only proves one thing – they are going to be in trend all through next year!
Besides helping to sweep up our face-framing hair and keeping flyways in check, a headband also breaks up the monotony of any hairstyle and lends it an interesting touch. There's a mind-boggling variety of headbands available in the markets these days – right from simple Alice bands to ornate circlets. They suit everyone, can be matched with the color of your outfit and worn just about anywhere!
Offering the best of both comfort and style, headbands definitely deserve their place in your beauty bag!
