Top Summer Hair Accessory Must-Haves

Summer is the perfect time to experiment with new hair styles and accessories. As the days get warmer and (hopefully) sunnier, adding accessories to your hair can be both practical and fun! In warm weather, hair accessories can be a great way to keep your hair off your face, whilst also adding something a little special or colourful to your outfit. 

With so many options out there it can be difficult to know where to start. So to help you out, we've compiled a list of our top hair accessories which we think are absolute must-haves for summer!

1. Fabric Headbands

Fabric headbands are a great summer hair accessory to inject some colour into your look. They look great with any hairstyle, whether you like to keep your hair loose and flowing, in a messy bun, or in a sleek ponytail.

Keep it simple with a ruched satin headband in one colour for a chic addition to your look, or make a statement with bright colours and a bold print. Incorporate a bright floral print with the bold floral headband, or try the handmade linen knot headband which is perfect for summer

Animal print has been a firm favourite for a few years now, so for a different spin on the popular print, go for a monochrome animal print headband in leopard or zebra.

If you are feeling bold, headbands with contrasting colours are a great way of making a statement. Perfect for festivals, summer parties or just for everyday, our bright abstract pattern headband stands out from the crowd!

2. Hair Clips and Slides

Hair clips and slides are easy to write off as simply an essential for holding a hairstyle in place, but statement clips are making a comeback that you don't want to miss out on! They are great for holding small sections of fly-away hair or keeping hair off of your face during the summer months, but don't just go for a basic slide. Add a splash of colour, or even sparkle, to even the simplest of hairstyles by choosing a clip with a little something extra.

Resin clips are a great option for those of you that want something simple yet stylish for everyday wear. Narrow hair clips or our elegant filigree hair clip from our French handmade collection will hold small sections of fine hair, medium hair or thick hair types. They look lovely pinning sections together at the back of the head, or stack two on one side for extra hold.

Slides featuring crystals are perfect accessories to transition from day to evening styles. Our pearl and crystal star hair slide is set with crystals which will catch the evening sun for a beautiful effect, while our Rosie Fox brooches also have a hair clip attachment so you can add some colourful sparkle to your hairstyle too!

3. Hair Flowers

 Hair flowers are a pretty summer hair accessory which can be added to any everyday hair style. Small flowers like our sunset cherry blossom hair clip look lovely decorating bun styles and are a great way of adding a feminine touch to a simple hairstyle. You could also use hair flowers to hold back sections of hair from your face. Our vintage pink rose hair flower is perfect for this.

Hair flowers can be a stunning addition to a wedding hair style, for both the guests and the bride herself! A large flower, such as our cream hair flower which features delicate lace, looks beautiful in loose flowing bridal styles or in sleek up-dos.

Flower headbands are a low-maintenance option for weddings as you can just pop it on and go! Our peach pearl rose headband features pearls and feathers with a romantic rose in a soft peach colour, perfect as a bridal headband or for wedding guests. For something more subtle, look for a headband with smaller flowers such as the flower blossom headband which would even be a pretty accessory for flower girls!

4. Colourful hairbands

The humble hair elastic is an essential for most people, especially in the summer when all you want to do is put your hair up in a ponytail or messy bun to keep cool and get your hair under control! But, it doesn't have to be a plain shade of black or brown! Go for something fun and colourful to brighten up even the simplest of summer hairstyles.

ByEloise charm hairbands are perfect for summer. They come in amazing bright colours and each one features a gold, silver or rose gold charm to add something extra special, some are even set with sparkling crystals. They look great in your hair, but are also pretty bracelets when worn around your wrist. Some of our favourites are the palm leaf charm hairbands and the neon charm hairbands.
