Spring 2017’s Best Hair Accessories

From swim caps to macaroni crowns, anything goes

If there’s one thing we’ve learned during Spring 2017, it’s that your junk drawer might just be your best weapon yet for achieving catwalk-ready hair. Think about it: Loose bobby pins lying around? Devise a deep side part, pull your length back into a sleek ponytail, and pop in a pin to channel the clean, minimalist look seen at Prada. “It feels very Miuccia with the bobby pin—she wears a bobby pin herself,” said Guido Palau of the slide slipped into models’ strands.

Dried flowers and little bits of lace leftover from a DIY project? Do as Orlando Pita did at Rosie Assoulin’s presentation in New York and sprinkle them in undone waves for a touch of whimsical romanticism—all the better if you add a few petals to cheeks and lips like makeup artist Val Garland at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. Or wrap scraps of ribbon around a few basic barrettes like Odile Gilbert did at Rodarte with the help of a handful of models.

Hell, take a cue from Miu MiuMaison MargielaThom Browne, and Gucci and leave your swimming cap on as you exit the water for Esther Williams-level glamour. That, or disguise a bad hair day with a boldly printed headscarf à la Armani. We’re partial, however, to the macaroni crown seen on Sora Choi at Dolce & Gabbana’s indulgent Tropico Italiano-themed chutzpa. How’s that for a brilliant dose of nursery school nostalgia? From belts at Tibi and bows at Erdem, to Bret Michaels-esque headbands at Baja East and feminist barrettes at Ashley Williams, click through the slideshow to see our picks for the best hair accessories from Spring 2017.
