Spring/Summer Hair Accessory Trends You Need to Try Right Now

It’s time to take notes from the elementary you and pin your locks back with the hair accessory trends that are gaining traction in spring/summer 2019. From shell-shaped clips to headbands that scream Blair Waldorf, we’ve pulled 12 statement hair accessories we’re already loving to help you hop on these trends stat!

UO Leopard Print Top Knot Headband

Spring Accessory Trends leopard print top knot headband

1 / 12


As a long, curly-haired lady, my hair is constantly in my face. So needless to say that when luxury designers like Miuccia Prada and Simone Rocha started making headbands great again, I was an early adopter. I’ve already swiped up a handful of these top-knotted headbands from Urban Outfitters last fall, and I’m making plans to add a few more to my collection, like this chic leopard print.

Kitsch x Justine Marjan Damn Rhinestone Bobby Pin

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends rhinestone bobby pin that says “DAMN”

2 / 12


Stylish, extra and anything but basic, this worded bobby pin from the Kitsch x Justine Marjan hair accessory collection is anything but subtle. Other bobby pins include the words “Feelings,” “Glam,” and “Drippin” and can be worn solo as pictured, but I vote for pushing the boundaries and layering the worded pins like Elle Ferguson modeled on her Instagram.

Orelia Coral Enamel Starfish Hair Clip

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends starfish shaped hair clip

3 / 12


An adult upgrade to the novelty Claire’s hair clips of years past, this pink enamel starfish-shaped hair clip will add whimsy to any look. And if you were ever obsessed with mermaids, as I was as a child, this clip will give you an emphasized Ariel effect as you sunbathe this summer.

Sunny Days Kerchief Scarf

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends floral scarf

4 / 12


Leave your lackluster black hair ties at home; a dimensional diamond scarf will bring your hair accessory game from weak to chic, pronto. Remarkably versatile, this scarf can be used as a ponytail tie or a knotted headband, woven into a braid or, my personal go-to, wrapped around a high bun. Additionally, you can revamp this accessory and tie it on the handle of your purse.

Lele Sadoughi Pearl Headband

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends headband with pearls

5 / 12


Chances are you’ve already experienced this headband flooding your Instagram feed this year. Lele Sadoughi has been cranking out lavish headbands left and right, but this pearl-embellished black velvet beauty has been giving me a serious case of accessory envy. Wear it forward near your hairline like a crown, and you’ll feel like a queen.

Sincerely Jules by Scünci Crystal Salon Clip

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends Scunci rhinestone salon clips

6 / 12


Not going to lie, I may or may not have let out a squeal when this Sincerely Jules and Scünci collab went live at Target. Bobby pins, satin scrunchies, barrettes and headbands galore, it’s hard to choose just one fave. Priced affordably and available at Target stores nationwide, you won’t think twice when tossing these rhinestone clips in your cart.

1992 Flip Clip

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends oversized flip clip

7 / 12


Large and in charge, this oversized metal snap clip is the classic ‘90s trend on steroids. This hair clip comes as a set, so you get not one, but two mega clips for holding your mane back. Wear them together on either side of your hairline, together on one side or solo.

Darling Draped Bow Scrunchie

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends polka dot scrunchie with bow

8 / 12


Undeniably femme, this bow scrunchie is begging to be worn with airy summer dresses and vintage-inspired swimwear. It’s honestly the perfect hack for lazy girls, like myself, who can’t tie a perfect bow to save their lives. It gives life to any boring hair day and comes in 8 prints for further outfit choices.

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends leaf and pearl gold hairpins

9 / 12


You just got an invite for what feels like your 15th wedding this summer. Buying a new outfit for each occasion is out of the question, so spruce up some frocks you already own and accessorize with these delightful gold leaf and pearl bobby pins. You’ll get multiple wears out of them and look far more expensive than what you’re spending.

Machete Claw Hair Clip

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends tortoise claw hair clip

10 / 12


We reported last year about claw clips making a comeback at the Alexander Wang Fall 2018 show, and that style will continue to rear its head into 2019. While Alexander’s models showed off large banana clips, I suggest trying smaller neutral hair clips like Machete’s tortoise claw clip for a fresh, spring-appropriate look.

LoveShackFancy Velvet Scrunchie Set

Spring 2019 Hair Accessory Trends blush velvet scrunchie

11 / 12


I believe that a high-quality velvet accessory can make any ensemble more lavish without unnecessary effort. This blush velvet scrunchie comes with an olive partner, which is great because I don’t think you could pick just one! Slip this scrunchie over any bun or ponytail for an effortlessly romantic look the next time you have a date or are simply dressing up for yourself.

You’ll feel like a siren of the sea the second you clip on these shell-shaped hair accessories by Valet Studio.
