The most stylish hair accessories for winter 2021

Looking for an easy way to elevate your hair this season? Check out the latest hair accessories. As the fashion crowd can attest, the latest headwear to hit the high street is bolder and better than ever, with the power to transform your look.

Plus, if you haven’t managed to make an appointment for a hairdresser appointment before Christmas, these hair accessories can cover all sorts of sins – from overgrown roots to broken ends.

Over the past couple of years, scrunchies, ’90s claw clips, headbands, and snap clips have all made a comeback, receiving the fashion ensemble’s seal of approval. Besides being a preschool throwback, they’re now a true street style staple.

As far as current trends go, party season means glitz, glamour, lots of metals (gold, silver, rose gold), lots of gems (crystals and pearls), and more is more (so layer and stack as if you were serious).

Want something that can see you next year? Tortoiseshell is headlining for slides, clips and grips. Headbands are torn between looser ruched styles (huge for this season and perfect if you want something more laid back to pair with comfy knits) and stiff metal hardware. Better yet, combine the two by stacking two or three Alice strips together. Scrunchies and bows remain popular, with fabrics like organza, chiffon and velvet leading the way.

When it comes to colors, earthy tones and rich gemstone hues dominate the accessories arena, with browns, burnt oranges, emerald and ruby ​​splashed throughout.

In the main street, & other stories, H&M and topshop have plenty of options to choose from, and for under-the-radar brands, check out our Lelet NY, Torteware, and Valet Studio. As for which accessory to choose? Layer the headbands alongside the scrunchies and pile the clips and handles over the hairline. More is more, so it’s time to succeed.

Here are the season’s best hair accessories from the high street and your favorite designers.
