‘Tis the season to break out our most beloved baubles, favorite sequin ensembles, fanciest party dresses, and holiday hair accessories. After all, it is an unwritten sartorial rule that there is no such thing as too much bling this time of year. As the primping and planning of all the sparkle and shine begins, we mustn’t forget to embellish those lovely locks with a little holiday hair flair. While our focus undoubtedly falls to finding the most fabulous of frocks, due diligence must be paid to the icing on the perfectly pulled together cake: An on point mane with pretty little details.
Whether you are a lady with long, flowing locks that are religiously styled down, a boss when it comes to the messy bun, or you prefer a perfectly styled ponytail, a hair accessory to suit your flair fancy is waiting to adorn your mane. From blinged out headbands and dazzling bobby pins to rhinestone encrusted hair combs and bauble embellished ponytail holders, dressed up tresses are trending for the season. Move over, scene-stealing ensembles: This year, the spotlight belongs to an expertly styled hair piece.
