Short hair can liberating, low-maintenance, carefree, and just flat out easy, but here's the thing: It can also feel boring. There's so much versatility that comes with length, from ponytails and plaits to topknots and mermaid waves. However, as bandanas, headbands, barrettes, and other accessories grow in popularity, bobs and pixie cuts become more convertible. So, the next time you're in a rut with your above-the-shoulder cut, turn to these celebrity-approved ways to accessorize short hair.
It all started when Bella Hadid rocked a comb headband on the Prabal Gurung runway. Nay, it started with Chrissy Teigen's "headband of the day." Never mind where it started, hair accessories of all shapes and sizes are now *officially* a fashion mainstay. And the key to wearing them is creativity.
So far in 2020, Fendi has reintroduced the backwards headband, Janelle Monae has crammed four chunky barrettes into a single braid, and multiple celebrities (Lucy Boynton and Charlize Theron, namely) have made red-carpet appearances with blinged-out scalps.
And the best part about it is that you don't need long hair to participate. You can take the minimalist route and wear a casual bandana or get campy by combining oversized clips à la Ashley Graham at the 2019 Met Gala. A few celebrity-approved short hair accessory ideas, ahead.
