Any mom of a young girl will know, mornings before school are completely manageable until the dreaded moment you need to “do” her hair. I brace myself, brush and an assortment of hair accessories in hand, waiting for the explosion of: “You’re hurting me!”. It was the same with my mom when I was a child and, it seems, will continue for generations to come. We just need to accept it.
The tools have changed, but the pain remains. But speaking of tools… if you’re around my age, do you remember the hair accessories we used? Alice bands, scrunchies, and for special occasions sparkly clips and slides? Well, readers, believe it or not, these are all back in 2019. And yes, grown women can wear sparkly clips in their hair.
TOP HAIR ACCESSORIES TRENDS IN 2019
If you’re looking for a way to look current without splurging, the season’s hair accessories are the answer. Of course there are the outliers but generally one can find some pretty great items at a small cost. The key, as with many fashion trends, is to own it. Don’t make it look like your child played dress-up with mom.
Hair Clips Galore
The first trend is lots of pretty hair clips and slides. Don’t be shy. The sparklier and more the better.
Check out Vintage Lover for a fab selection of clips. We love their sparkly ones and also the resin versions for a pop of colour!

They made a comeback to our horror last year. And yes, this hair accessories trend still around. At least they will damage our hair a bit less than elastics. What a blast from the past! Will you be trying them?
Check out Zando for a fab selection of scrunchies. This soft pink one is…errr… kind of nice?

Another big hair accessories trend in 2019 is bows. This instantly reminded me of the big velvet bows that everyone wore in the ’80s. I can’t seem to get Fergie out of my head. This year’s trend is just as bold. Grab a pretty scarf or a piece of fabric that matches your outfit and tie it around your ponytail.
For this hair accessories trend have a look at Superbalist. They have a few nice options.

For me, the top hair accessories trend is hair clips. I think I’ll be sporting a few of them to brighten up my look this summer.
