We accessorize our ears, wrists, necks, and even our bellies (if you’re Gwen Stefani circa 1997) — so why not our hair?!

Check out the most stylish hair accessories we’ve seen on Instagram lately that’ll liven up your everyday look big time.

1. Bun Pins and Cuffs

Buns are always a do, but they can look a little casual (read: I just washed my face).

Give them a sophisticated touch with the help of pins and cuffs. These modern hair accessories keep your style in place while helping your bun look perfectly polished.

2. Hair Jewelry

Wash-and-wear girls can go ahead and skip this intricate look, but high-maintenance ladies can collectively rejoice.

Weave your fanciest necklaces, bracelets, chokers, and brooches into your hair to give it some serious sparkle and shine.

Just drape the jewelry where you want it to go, and then secure each end with a couple of bobby pins.

3. Ponytail Wraps

Ponytails are so simple and chic, but elastic ponytail holders are, well, basic.

Upgrade this everyday style with a ponytail wrap instead. You’ll cover up those boring elastics while giving your look a little something extra.

4. Bows

The ultimate ladylike accessory, bows are a style essential year-round.

That being said, warm-weather months are the perfect opportunity to give your wintry velvet hair bows a break and swap them out for pastels and metallics instead.

5. Floral Bobby Pins

Feelin’ the floral trend? Why wouldn’t you be?! Floral hair accessories look perfectly pretty with any length of hair.

Use them to pin your hair back as you please. So chic, right?

6. Scrunchies

Sorry, Carrie Bradshaw. Scrunchies are totally having a moment.

Add these cute hair accessories to your rotation to give basic ensembles a little pop of color. (And sleep in them at night for snag-free curls in the morning.)

7. Hair Picks

If you’re a fan of half-up, half-down hairstyles, then this idea’s for you.

Hair picks are such a cute addition to this look, and they come in a wide range of contemporary silhouettes for minimalists and trendsetters alike.

8. Hair Charms, Gems, and Beads

I’m currently obsessed with hair charms, and I think it’s pretty easy to see why. These easy-to-add gems and beads clamp around sections of your hair for a really fresh approach to accessorizing.

Wear a single charm or a whole assortment to create a look that’s true to you.

9. Hair Scarves

The great thing about hair scarves is that they’re versatile enough to wear in so many other ways: as neck scarves, bracelets, or handbag accessories.

Stock up on your favorite color palettes and prints for a super-stylish way to get your hair out of your face.
