    Gatsby Hair Accessories You Need to Own

    You’ve read the book, you’ve seen the movie, and you’ve been rocking out to the Jay-Z and Beyonce track off the Great Gatsby Soundtrack ever since it was released . . . you might even have found yourself checking out some vintage posters for sale that hark back to the roaring 20s to decorate the walls of your home. But that’s not enough. You want to be a Gatsby Gal through and through . . . and you can, without wearing head to toe sequins and smoking cigarettes out of a long dainty holder. Give a nod to the roaring 20s through your Gatsby hair accessories, the period pieces that can be seamlessly integrated into 2013 style trends. Don’t be surprised when the Charleston replaces your signature move at the club upon donning these Great Gatsby inspired hair accessories and your co-workers start calling you Daisy Buchanan.

    Speaking of Ms. Buchanan, Casey Mulligan’s glamorous bedazzled headband was easily the most eye-catching aspect of The Great Gatsby remake (other than Leonardo DiCaprio’s still-good looks after all these years!). Extravagantly sparkling hair accessories, like the one she wears as Daisy, were incredibly popular in the 1920s, however, it must’ve caught the eye of designers too as more and more embellished headbands are popping up on the market.

    The ASOS Flapper Jewel Headband is similar in style and sparkle to the one Mulligan wears in every poster advertising the movie. And at $32, it’s a much more affordable find than the original, which was designed by Tiffany and Co. But if the glitzy headbands still aren’t flashy enough for you, up the ante with additional decorative flair from the era. Feathers and fringe were both popular for flapper girls and featured on many of the women in the film. Miss Selfridge’s Feather Headband, $26, appears to be lifted from the set itself and definitely makes a bold statement.Gatsby Hair Accessories

    Maybe you’re thinking, “I’m not a Daisy at all,” though. Maybe you fancy yourself more like Isla Fisher as Myrtle Wilson. In that case, you’re going to need a head scarf to tie around your hair! You can go for a plain color or a two toned, like Mrytle’s, but more often we saw scarves with vintage patterns on them, like the Halogen “Graphic Oblong” Scarf $38. A headscarf easily dresses up a casual outfit or dresses down more formal attire and, as we saw in the film, accompanies both long and short hair nicely.

    Barrettes and hair clips were also aplenty on the set and a necessary accessory addition to your Gatsby Gal wardrobe. Barrettes are surely the most subtle of the suggestions, however, they don’t have to be. Your clips and barrettes can be just as bejeweled and lavish as the headbands above, even though they are often times small. The TopShop Flower Rhinestone Hair Clip for $33 looks as though it used to be a part of one of Daisy’s headbands, as it has just as many gems but can be used to pull your finger curls away from your face or secure your bangs in a slicked back look.Gatsby Hair Accessories

    Anthropologie’s Crystal Floret Barrette $18 incorporates floral and rhinestones for a more conservative Gatsby girl who still deserves a little flair in her hair.
