Whether you need to hide the fact that you’re having a bad hair day, or you just want to do something a little different where your tresses are concerned, accessories can be a great way to spice things up. With that in mind, we rounded up some of our current go-to summer hair accessories.
Add a fresh pop of pink to your look with this ultra-cute satin bow headband (gap.com, $12). Whether you want to add a splash of color to an all-black ensemble or just have a bit more fun with your look in the warmer months, this eye-catching accessory makes it easy to add interest to your look. It works well with longer locks, both straight and wavy.
Channel your inner flower girl as you strut your stuff in this pretty headpiece adorned with small pink roses (topshop.com, $28). Before you dismiss this hair band as too trite to be sophisticated, remember that summer is all about having fun with your look. We suggest adding this hot hair accessory to any outfit that needs a lift.
Give your look a vintage-inspired twist with this elegant metal barrette featuring Champagne-hued stones (1928.com, $18). The silver tone clip with a hint of sparkle adds a touch of subtle glamour to any outfit. Sweep a section of hair off to one side and adhere with your barrette for effortless summer style.
We were instantly enamored with this gorgeous Nina Briella hair comb topped with a tangle of white stones and Swarovski crystals (lordandtaylor.com, $115). This ornate piece pairs perfectly with evening wear and would work especially well with your favorite LBD. Wear with hair down or tucked into a chignon or updo.
If you like bright colors (and in the summer, who doesn’t?), then you’ll want to hurry up and add this get-noticed bow clip to your list of must-have hair accessories (modcloth.com, $13). The alligator-clipped bow, which is covered in swaths of magenta, turquoise, yellow, black and cocoa, makes for a playful addition to your hot weather look.

Choose from three equally stylish motifs, all of which add a touch of vibrant color to your tresses. Easy to use, these pretty pins are great for any length of hair.
