Our We Try Before You Buyseries aims to take the stress out of shopping and eliminate the number of post office visits you make each month to return failed online orders. We test new-season buys and styling ideas so you don’t have to. Here, we’re letting you know what’s actually worth investing in, and now, we’re turning our attention tobeauty too.
From spring trends to Zara lipsticks, we’ve been pretty good at trialing the best beauty items and looks out there to give you an indicator of what’s worth parting with your hard-earned cash for. This month, though, we’re turning our attention to hair—accessories to be specific. Definitely the biggest hair trend of 2019 so far, the number of stylish women embellishing their hair with clips, bows, and headbands shows no signs at all of slowing down. Which is why I and the rest of the team wanted to get in on the action. Keep scrolling to see the headbands, hair clips, and hair ties we tried, and shop the best ones online right now.
Whether they’re just wearing one as a subtle nod to the trend or layering them up for a maximalist approach to accessorizing, there’s absolutely no doubting that fashion girls have gone wild over hair clips this year. Great for all hair types, they double up as a particularly chic way to disguise bangs when you’re growing it out.
You might not have worn a headband since primary school, but they’re officially back—and they’re the special occasion headwear of choice for the fashion set. (Plus, bonus points for the way that they can disguise greasy roots in a stylish way.) We’ve spotted French girls wearing them in abundance, with chic hair ties and ribbons being another favorite.
