Be Creative and Even Crafty with Terrific Accessories for Your Tresses!




With so many hair styles to experiment with, it’s easy to forget about all of the handmade and darling hair accessories that are available these days. Shop on Etsy and you’ll find tons of accessories, from hair elastics to pretty headbands. The truth is that hair accessories should be used more often. These pretty works of art are perfect to plan an outfit around, instead of planning your outfit around your main items of clothing. There are several trendy and terrific handmade hair accessories that you should check out right now, because they will make your tresses look even more beautiful!

Silky Scarf

With the fall time quickly approaching, a sweet and silky scarf will look perfect in your hair. You can leave your locks down and gather a wide scarf at the nape of your neck, or you can put your hair in an updo and twist the scarf around most of your head and the bun. However you choose to use your scarf is up to you, but it’s a trendy statement that will look amazing with your hair and not to mention will keep your head warm when it starts to get cooler outside! So clip in your hair extensions (if you have them), and have fun with a silky and soft scarf that will be the perfect addition.

Pretty Handmade Headbands

Headbands are both easy to make and fun to buy. If you feel like being creative head to your nearest craft store and buy a fabric headband or a stretchy athletic headband that you can add to with pretty embellishments. Search for and then add pretty flowers to the headband or if you’d like more of a glam statement, find jewels that will be easy to glue on to the headband. Once you’ve created a great looking headband, it’s time to add it to your perfect locks! You can style your hair in curls or put your hair up while using a headband that will certainly stand out in a wonderful way.

Smooth Satin Hair Ties

The latest hair accessory craze is satin hair ties that look amazing in your hair. Most satin hair ties (find them in an array of colors too!), are so smooth that when they are in your hair, they won’t rip or tug hair like most hair elastics will. What’s also great about these fun elastics is that you can use them as arm candy when you prefer to keep your hair down. Later, when you want your hair out of your face a satin tie will work perfectly because it won’t cause any marks should you want to take your hair down later in the day!

Most of these accessories look fabulous with longer tresses, but will definitely look nice with shorter hairstyles too. If you’re not sure where to start looking for fabulous hair accessories, you will find plenty of fun accessories and even hair extensions to with your accessories at sites like Perfect Locks. It’s time to start being more creative with your hair and embracing the trends. Transforming your tresses with creative accessories is just the start to implementing fabulous fashion in your everyday style!
