Spring Hair Accessories

Want to dress up an updo? Stick a doodly in it. Want your hair to look approximately 83 percent more pulled-together? Stick a doodly in it. Don’t know what to do with your hair at all? Stick a doodly in it.

Long ago, my best friend and I christened all girly hair accessories to be “doodlies.” As in, Which doodly do you like better—the peacock feather or the crystal comb? Hair doodlies are a minor obsession, and the great thing about them is that they look great and work in all kinds of hair, in all kinds of styles. Thin hair, thick hair, long and loose, topknot city ... all hair looks great with a festive doodly. (Let’s make “doodies,” happen, okay Internet?)
Warm weather is pretty much Doodly Central, since so much spring and summer style is about fighting frizz and humidity with low-maintenance updos. I’m fixin’ to put these doodlies all up in my styles all season long.
