Posh Pom Poms


Take the fur trend to the next level with one of these admittedly out-there hair clips. Furry mink bobbles and Swarovski crystal centers are the touch of luxury your low pony could use. If pink and red aren’t your favorite color combo, no worries. Choose between three other colors, including black and white, to satisfy your hair accessory appetite.

Mother Of Pearl


Just another one of our favorite Jennifer Behr headpiece picks. This dainty headband is crafted with not one, but two gleaming, gold-plated bands decked out in lustrous Swarovski pearls, giving it a semi-crown effect. Elastic at the back also makes this hair accessory totally wearable for a guaranteed good hair day.

The ’80s Called


…And they want their scrunchies back.

Between various tones and finishes, including satins, velvets, and metallics, your messy bun has never looked better.

We can always count on Forever 21 for keeping us on top of the latest trends, like polished hair accessories in silver, gold, and any other shiny metal. This etched star headband looks way more expensive than its $5 price tag, and is reminiscent of starry versions by accessory masters like Jennifer Behr, Lulu Frost, and luxury accessories boutique Dauphines of New York. *Adds to cart.*
