Remember the 80’s? Get reacquainted as we have a revival coming……. scrunchies, hair claws and combs are back!
The fashion industry are loving branding hair accessories and this is quickly arriving on the high street in stores like Top Shop and ASOS.
Gucci, Channel and Balenciaga to name a few are chamioning the trend. Sometimes a hair accessory can transform a simple black dress to something chic. I love the return of the hair slides, it takes me back to my teenage years!
If you don’t want to commit to a designer name the high street is offering some really good throw away trend accessories.
Top shop have a fantastic range of scrunchies and hair claws. These are not the old diamanté variety, they are quirky shapes and textures that will enhance any hair length. If you would like to be more adventurous try ASOS, they have a fabulous collection of bows and hair claws.
I love the bows and claws as I have shorter length hair and this can really transform your look. My advice is to add a beach texture into the hair before adding accessories.
- Make sure you protect your hair with Heat Protection Spray. My top pick is ghd of course, this will protect your hair up to 220 degrees C and you only have to apply it once when your hair is wet.
- Using the ghd Creative Curl Wand, take 2cm sections of your hair and twist around the wand leaving for 6-8 seconds before releasing (the twist should look like a fine silk thread around the wand)
- Alternate your sections clockwise and anticlockwise to give a beach texture throughout the hair.
- Dress out with your fingers or a wide tooth comb, shaking the hair and adorning with your chosen accessories.
The question is are you ready for the return of the Scrunchie?
