Trend Report: Embellished Hair
From a single metallic barrette to a highly embellished pin, you will have noticed that hair accessories are getting desirably decorative this season.
Putting on the glitz
“But I haven’t worn a sparkly hair accessory since I was a child!”, we hear you cry. Fear not, dear reader as the current trend lends itself to modern grown-up glamour with a hint of playfulness. We’re not talking glittery scrunchies and butterfly clips, it’s something all together more chic. Whether you want to dip your toe into the trend or make a very sparkly statement, there is an accessory for you.
'Tis the season to be glitzy
If minimal is your aesthetic, you need to think clean geometric lines in brushed metals. From circular slides and hair loops to classic clips, take your style cues from accessory brands such as Colette Malouf and SS17 fashion shows such as Francesca Liberatore and Laura Biagiotti.
GLIZTOMETER RATING: ★
Tap into seasonal trends and perfect your party style by adding a touch of glitz and glam to your look. Think ornamental stacks of sparkly hair slides, hair rings and single-jewel pins. Look to shows such as Marchesa and Ashley Williams for hairstyle inspiration.
GLIZTOMETER RATING: ★★★
If you want to well and truly #glitztheseason, then look no further than Ashish and Dolce Gabbanna’s SS17 shows. We’re talking tiaras and highly bejewelled hair pieces that will definitely make an impact. So very major.
GLIZTOMETER RATING: ★★★★★
THINK OUTSIDE OF THE (JEWELLERY) BOX
While we love traditional hair accessories, we also love using brooches, pendants and even earrings to clip into hair. It’s all about experimenting and adding dazzle to your look as we head into the festive party season.
Use a minimum of 4-5 hair embellishments if you’re going to adorn your style this season… if you’re going for it, you should REALLY go for it!
