Modern Hair Accessories.

Are you looking for an accessory with a difference? Something not retro or too fancy? Here are some of the best modern hair accessories. Some of these ideas are so simple it’s crazy that we didn’t think of them before, like the hooked elastic above. These are usually sold in packs of 6 or 10, for very little money.

Modern Hair Accesories – Chic accessories

Section your hair into two sections. Attach the lowest one near the neck into a ponytail with an elastic band. Just hook the top section across with the two hooked bands, being sure the hooks get anchored into the attached sides of tail underneath. So easy!

These ideas need a little more work as you need to find them, but we find them incredibly chic.

Don’t have time to shop some modern hair accessories? Try this no-accessory look by creating a knotted tail. You can always dress it up by slipping in a fresh flower for a summer day’s look.

Simple bobby pins make a great effect for any occasion. Try black bobby pins on blonde hair or vice versa.

Modern Hair Accesories – Metal Head Band

Don’t you love this metal head band used around the head instead of on top? Great idea.

There is nothing more chic than a metal band on a straightened pony tail. Use the right size to cover the base of a false tail.

Other type of Modern Hair Accesories

These frayed ribbons are very “Chanel”.  I love the texture it gives, and how it fattens out the pony tail. Winter fabrics are used here, but this idea could be just as effective with summer organza’s and silk. I think the frayed edges are important for the look, so if you make these cuts spend some time fraying those side threads.

If you have any other modern hair accessories ideas, tell us about them. We would love to know!
