The Best Hair Accessories on the High Street

When was the last time you remember wearing hair accessories? Beyond the usual hair ties, I mean. For some, possibly last week, but for me we are talking years ago. My last recollection of regularly rocking hair accessories takes me back to being in secondary school and making my own bow hair clips in as many brightly coloured ribbons as I could find. They were *ahem* “kitsch”, shall we say…

Fast forward to SS19 and hair accessories are among the biggest trend items of the moment. What I love the most about their resurgence is not just that I feel instantly girly (and slyly like my pre-teen self) but the fact that they are the easiest and cheapest way to make your look feel “now”. When you’re eternally broke like this girl right here, you’ll know you can never underestimate the joy of a cheap fashion thrill. 

Which leads me onto the fact that the high street really comes through for this kind of craze. As much as I can appreciate Gucci’s bejewelled barrettes, I’m sure I’m not the only one who’d rather eke my £200+ pounds out over some weekly food shops, you know… to survive.

So, keep on scrolling for my roundup of the best hair accessories on the high street right now. Let me know which ones you like the most!
