The hottest hair accessories for Spring 2018 can be found straight off the runway at New York’s Fashion Week. From Wang to Versace, you’ll definitely want to try (or re-try) these hair adornment ideas.
You can call it a claw clip or a banana clip (for the large version), but, yes, it’s the same hair accessory you rocked in the 90s. Chances are, you’ve still got plenty of them hidden in the back of a drawer somewhere. It’s time to move them front and center, which is where they recently appeared at the Alexander Wang Fall 2018 show during Fashion Week in New York City. Once you start using the claw clip again, you’ll wonder why you ever stopped. It’s functional, stylish (again), and did we mention how easy they are to use? Your salon stylist will no doubt start stocking them, so look for newer designs in metallic and embellished finishes.
The Versace runway for Spring 2018 fashion featured a barrage of gold barrettes; shiny gilded bars holding the hair on either side of a middle part, just above the ears. With gold barrettes, the more bejeweled, the better. Look for ones with pearls and other faux gems, as well as scrolled designs.
Silken Hair Wraps
Stylists will tell you that silk is the best fabric for hair, so Lanvin’s silken hair wraps at Fashion Week for 2018 make so much sense. Try wrapping a long braid in silk, attaching silken bow to the bottom of a bun, or wrapping the head in a gorgeous silk wrap with a gilded tie at the crown. Silken hair wraps work for everything from black tie cocktail parties to impromptu trips to the market.
Whether you want to pull your hair up with a claw clip, pull it back with a barrette, or wrap it in silken luxury, your salon stylist will likely have even more ideas for ways to use these fashion forward hair accessories. Try a new style today and see how many different looks can be created!
