Hair jewellery is back! This is going to be one of the biggest hair trends of autumn 2016, taking the ‘natural hair’ thing that’s so popular right now to new levels. We blame Game of Thrones – its wild popularity has made everyone want to wrap necklaces through their hair!
This trend is so versatile. Whether you want to drape chains around loose curls or attach an earring to an up-do, there are a tonne of creative ways to wear hair jewellery. LUXE Models reveals five tips for wearing hair jewellery this autumn.
Store bought or homemade?
Why buy hair jewellery, when you have perfectly good pieces at home? You might want to raid your drawers and use your normal jewellery as hair decorations. But if you want something more avante guarde, head to the high street. The UK Fashion Spot notes that hair jewellery designs have become more sophisticated over the past decade, so you can find some really cool, quirky pieces!
Remember the basics
This trend may lend itself to creativity, but you should still keep the basic rules of style in mind. Do the tones of your hair and jewellery please each other? Does the jewellery match the rest of your outfit? Is the piece too heavy for your hair? By asking these questions, you’ll be able to find the right hair jewellery-look for any occasion, from a day at the office to a night on the town!
Follow the celebs
Do you want to be really on trend? Scour the fashion mags and find out how your favourite celebrities are working hair jewellery this season. Some of the most famous women in the world, from Kim Kardashian to Taylor Swift, have been pictured rocking this style in 2016. Use a celebrity fashion finder app like Craves to figure out where you can buy the pieces your favourite celebrity wore last week!
Wait until it's dry
Wets locks are the enemy of hair jewellery, hair blog Naturally Curly reveals. Always wait until your hair is dry before you put on your pieces. Otherwise, your hair could dry around the accessory, making it much harder to remove at night. On that subject, you should always remove your hair jewellery before bed, so if you toss and turn in the night, you don’t encounter any problems the next day.
Secure jewellery tightly!
Modern life is pretty hectic. If you’re not careful, your jewellery will get tangled up in your hair, due to the rigours of daily life, making it almost impossible to take out. It is essential that you secure you jewellery tightly and we’d suggest that you go with bobby pins, so it always stays in place.
Let your imagination run free when choosing hair jewellery and as long as you don’t cross the fashion police, you should end up with a really edgy look that’s perfect for autumn 2016!
