Holiday Hair Accessories

Party pretty with one of these glamorous holiday hair accessories!

Holiday hair accessories are not just for kids these days. Not since the 80’s have we seen adornments of the hair have such a moment. While adding a bit of bling to your normal everyday hairstyle may sound like a tad too much, the holiday season is the perfect excuse for you to get in on the fun. Hair accessories have been flourishing on the red carpet and runways for a while now, and now it’s your turn to try it out with some of these incredible picks:

Kim Kardashian ponytail hair jewelry

If you’re totally loving the bohemian head jewelry craze (that Nicole Richie mainstreamed millenniums ago) you must go to gla.MAR.ous. This label has perfectly sized pieces for those wanting the glam but would like to avoid looking too costume-y. These hair accessories do not break the bank either, which is the ultimate selling point. You can find these pieces at www.shopglamarous.com.

Fabulous updo with woven hair jewelry accessory

Perhaps you want to amp it up? Go big or go home with this trend, right? Take a page from the Jennifer Lawrence’s style book and weave a vintage necklace through your finished updo.  This is a no-brainer considering it could potentially cost you NOTHING and all you need add are pins. Not to mention, you will easily be the best tressed person in the room.

Hair jewelry is a quick, versatile, easy way to turn up the glam on your beautiful look. These extraordinary pieces are also great for camouflaging lackluster hair styling attempts (for our time-deprived gals). Holiday time is the perfect time to get your feet wet with this trend. Why? Because everyone knows it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Next time you’re at a flea market do some scouting for some vintage custom jewelry or a vintage brooch, pinning up one side just above or right in front of the ear or, pulling back and securing on top of the head just in front of the crown.

Hair Sticks

If you do a Google image search for the term “hair sticks” you’ll find dozens of creative ideas for hair sticks. Some will cost you a week’s salary, but one of the most interesting updos I have ever seen was at a holiday party recently wear a woman had two plastic chopsticks with Chinese characters engraved. It was a great conversational piece as several people asked the meaning throughout the night. It didn’t hurt that she was absolutely gorgeous and sporting a dress that showed plenty of cleavage. I asked about where  she bought the chopsticks, she said “Oh, I just asked for an extra set at my local Chinese restaurant . . . they gave them to me for free.”

As you can see hair accessories need not be expensive or complicated to be effective here are some others that you might want to consider

  • Pinned into a ponytail holder
  • Bobby pins with decorative attachments
  • Hair clips, jeweled, gold or silver
  • Jeweled ponytail holders

Hair Accessories Every Gatsby Gal Should Own

Gatsby Hair Accessories

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 . . . 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.

Gatsby Hair Accessories

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.

Gatsby Hair Accessories

Regardless of your style or hair length, try these fashionable Gatsby hair accessories and you may have the man of your dreams looking for the green light in your life!
