1. Luxe Scrunchies 

Oh my, scrunchies have undergone the ultimate reinvention over the past few years, haven’t they? Once the epitome of tack, the scrunchy is suddenly the ultimate hair accessory.

The catwalk, of course. 

Everyone from Gucci to Ganni has been at it. Sporting a designer stamped scrunchy is the way to instantly modernise your look this summer. Choose luxe fabrics, such as satin and velvet, and sweep you hair into a messy bun or ponytail. Not blessed with a long mane? Our Clip In Ponytails ought to do the trick!

Perfect for updating any look, team your sophisticated scrunchy with anything from luxe sportswear to a classic short suit – extra points for matching it to your facemask!

What do bold and colorful headscarves make you think of? 

For us, this exotic hair accessory conjures up scenes of balmy beaches, tropical cocktails and turquoise waters… hmm heaven! An eclectic accessory for beach days, the simple addition of a silky headscarf to your bikini getup gives you INSTANT Eva Mendes vibes. Who doesn’t want that?

Not only are headscarves super sexy, they’re also a lifesaver for concealing untameable frizzy bonces or greasy roots. Can you think of anything else that transforms you from sweaty mess to beach goddess in just a few seconds? Us neither… 

Another great aspect of this versatile accessory? It works wonders with any hairstyle. Create retro beach vibes by wrapping it around your head and leaving your locks long and loose. Our Quad Weft Pieces are great for creating volumised waves. Try our Lightest Brown/Bleach Blonde Mix (#18/613) for a sun kissed style. Alternatively, pile your tresses high for a funky style that will keep you looking and feeling effortlessly cool. 

3. Pretty Bow Hair-Ties

ALL the influencers worth their style salt are sporting this trend. The look is simple, yet powerful. Take a pretty bow hair-tie and sling it around a low, loose ponytail or messy plait for relaxed, yet sophisticated feels. Not blessed with long hair? Don’t fret – ClipHair has your back! In particular, our Medium Brown Hair Extensions (#4) look AMAZING paired with a contrasting black satin bow hair-tie for instant Insta-hair status.

A gorgeous, ethereal look for summer days, this romantic hairstyle is perfect for country jaunts and quaint picnics. Team with a floral maxi dress and wide brim straw hat for a pretty, bohemian aesthetic. More of a city gal? Bow hair-ties additionally work with a slick back, sleek pony and loose, tailored suit for an office-to-bar kind of situation.

Prettify your hair with these simple mini embellishments. Tiny clips loaded with gems, crystals, glitter or pearls have been all the rage since 2018. An effortless way to vamp up any dull hairstyle, load up your bonce with these chic clips for a dazzling summer style. 

Fashionable AND functional, these fancy fellas can be used as simple accessories for a long, loose hair style or to hold up a structured up-do. Pilling your locks high into a nonchalant bun and securing with a couple of glittery clips is a one way ticket to effortless glamour.

Say hello to this sunbathing saviour. Whether you’re hitting the beach or catching some park rays, adding a twist-style hairband to your bonce creates a sexy, Mediterranean vibe. Not only does it instantly beautify your look, but hides a multitude of hot weather sins. Greasy roots, frizz, lank hair – all gone. Also genius for hiding grown out hair extensions or dark roots – what’s not to love about this covetable hair accessory?

For a laidback-luxe vibe - Ibiza style - team a striped twist hairband with Balayage Hair Extensions to create a spent-the-day-at-the-beach look. Who needs to know you’ve been sunning yourself in the backyard all day? We won’t tell if you don’t!

6. 90s Claw Clip

ANOTHER 90s trend to score highly this summer, the humble claw clip has jumped straight from your mum’s head onto the hottest influencers and celeb bonces. 

And we can see why. 

A cool and nonchalant substitute to a ponytail, securing your locks with this retro hair accessory gifts you with instant sex symbol status. Artfully pull out straggles of hair around your face and neck for a beautiful, undone look. Now all you need is a silk midi skirt, cropped cardy and chunky sandals and you’ll be mistaken for Rachel from Friends… 

Wait… are claw clips too flimsy for long hair?

Maybe. If you’re blessed with a bountiful bonce, or wear long, luxurious hair extensions – go for a half up, half down look. Worried about extension clips or bonds being visible? If you choose our Nano Ring Hair Extensions, they’re virtually invisible!
