When it comes to my hair, I usually opt for styles that are quick and easy-to-do. I also almost always incorporate some kind of hair accessory. Today, I’m sharing 5 of my favorite simple summer hairstyles that can be done in a pinch!
5 Simple Summer Hairstyles Using Hair Accessories
A lot of times, I just wear my hair down so I like to accessorize with headbands. If I’m being honest, my collection would probably rival Blair Waldorf’s hehe! When putting on my headband, I place it right behind the ears. If my ears are showing, then I’ll just cover them up with my hair. Anddd that’s it! Super simple and takes literally no time but looks incredibly stylish!
Decorative bobby pins are a hair accessory that I’m constantly experimenting with. They’re so much fun to wear and you can style them a million different ways. For today’s look, I’m using five floral bobby pins to pin back one side of my hair. I start by placing the first one near my temple. When I’m happy with how it looks, I place each pin directly under going at angle. The result is a super sweet look that’s on trend and absolutely gorgeous!
Jaw clips were huge when I was younger (anyone else remember those days? lol!) but have recently made a comeback. The updated versions are super stylish and I especially love this embellished clip. I use jaw clips when I want to pull my hair back and have minimal time. For this look, I took portions from both sides of my hair and twisted them back toward my head. Once they met in the middle, I simply secured with my jaw clip and loosened up my hair a bit for a more natural look. The result is a super trendy and relaxed style. If you’d like a more put together look, simply secure with bobby pins before using the jaw clip 🙂
Floral pins really add so much to a hairstyle without a doing a lot extra of work. These are actually made of really flowers and not only are they beautiful but they’re incredibly versatile. For this hairstyle, I gathered the top portion of my hair to create a half up – half down look and did a simple braid. I secured the braid with a hair tie that matched my hair color. I took a small section of hair and wrapped it around the hair tie and underneath to hold. I tightened the braid and then loosened each section to widen it and give it a more textured and imperfect look. Then I placed each hair pin throughout the braid, carefully weaving it through to secure. The result is a stunning boho look straight out of a fairytale!
Like headbands, bows are another hair accessory that I use often. For this hairstyle, I started by brushing the top of hair backward eliminating the part. I gathered hair from both sides of my head and secured with two bobby pins that form an X. Then I took the pinned back portion and clipped my bow over it. This look takes hardly anytime at all and it always look amazing!
