Are you feeling a little disenchanted with your hairstyle? Could you use an update, but not necessarily a whole new haircut?

1. Bows

Adding a bow to a braid or ponytail is a really easy way to up the cute factor with minimal effort. Just make sure you choose a color to coordinate with the rest of your look!

Styling tip

Stop frizz from taking over by applying a smoothing cream to your hair before blow drying. A calming product like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream will eliminate any fuzz while the hair dries, leaving you with soft, well-behaved tresses!

2. Headband


Whether you need to make your mane look presentable in a hurry, or are dealing with dirty roots, a headband is the perfect accessory. You can use it to push your hair back, embellish an updo, or spruce up a second day blowout.

Styling tip

When using a dry shampoo like Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray, make sure you give it enough time to work. You want to leave it on your roots for five to ten minutes before brushing it out for the best results.

3. Chic barrette

When you want to look pulled together but you hair just won't play ball, try taming it with a barrette. Clip your hair into place at the back for a smooth, grownup hairstyle that's both chic and sophisticated.

Styling tip

Mist your finished style with hairspray and smooth down the sides with wet hands to keep it sleek and flyaway-free all day long.

4. Flowers


Floral hair accessories are a surefire way to put a bohemian spin on any hairstyle, and they're especially pretty with textured locks. Just make sure you take a less-is-more approach to prevent overloading your hair.

Styling tip

Use a texturizing spray like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray to create loose, beachy waves with a curling iron or blow dryer.

5. Bobby pins

Wearing visible bobby pins is a simple, inexpensive way to add detail to your favorite hairstyles and give them a whole new lease of life. Try crisscrossing your pins at the back of a half-up style or wear a bunch of them in a row at the side of an updo to create a faux barrette.

Styling tip

For added grip spray your bobby pins with dry shampoo before sliding them onto your hair.

6. Ribbon


Perhaps the most versatile hair accessory around, ribbon can be worn any which way imaginable! You can tie it around the base of a ponytail, weave it into a braid, tie it into a headband... it's totally up to you!

Styling tip

Get a glossy finish to offset the ribbon with a high-shine finishing spray like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.
