4 Ways to wear minimalist hair accessories

/ 04.15.2015

Minimalist hair accessories have become something of a micro beauty trend this season, and one that anyone can jump on board with. To help you explore the major options, we've selected four easy ways to incorporate minimalist accessories into your hairstyle repertoire.

Which one will you try first?

1. Ponytail cuff

The humble ponytail is one of the simplest, most versatile hairstyles on earth so it makes complete sense that it looks really good with an equally simple hair accessory. A cute hair cuff adds some extra detail to any pony while disguising the hair elastic. You can do the same thing with a ribbon for a more whimsical look.

Styling tip

To add shine and banish flyaways, spritz your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray before gathering your locks into a ponytail.

2. Barrettes

On those days when you know you should probably wash your hair but don't have time, a barrette is a real lifesaver. A monotone or dual tone barrette can transform a low knot or bun into a chic updo in just a few seconds, creating a look that's polished and pulled together. Fake it 'til you make it, as they say...

Styling tip

To absorb excess oil and eliminate any telltale signs of greasiness, spray your roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray and brush it through before styling.

3. Visible bobby pins

Our love for bobby pins knows no bounds and we can finally show them off this season by using them as an alternative to barrettes! You can pin them in a line, a zig zag, a stack... however you want! Let your imagination run wild because this season, hairstyle imitates art.

Styling tip

To get a frizz-free texture that won't distract from your bobby pins, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream before blowdrying.

4. Chains

If you have an old necklace lying around, give it a new lease of life by using a it as a hair accessory! You can weave it into a braid or twist it into a bun (or both) to give some of your favorite styles some added sparkle.

Styling tip

Prevent humidity from cramping your style by misting your finished look generously with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray.
