7 Hair Accessories That Work After 30
Yes, you can wear hair accessories beyond your hopscotch days. We'll show you how to pull off these super trendy hairstyles without looking like your niece
Boy, have things changed.
Hair accessories aren't just for kindergartners or the JV cheerleading squad anymore. In fact, Tina Dizon, owner of Beverly Hills salon The Private Room, says accessories are having a huge moment, showing up everywhere from runways to the red carpet, with leggy models sporting barrettes and A-list stars wearing headbands to the Oscars.
Skip ahead to see the 7 best hair accessories you can wear after you turn 30.
But when you're past your pompom days and not a celeb or a sunken-cheeked model, can you wear hair accessories without looking like Shirley Temple?
The key is to wear the right hair accessory with the right hairstyle. While a rhinestone-studded tiara may not be in your accessorizing future, a pretty, statement-piece barrette can make the two-minute ponytail you created in your car look chic and put-together. "Scarves, bows, and ribbons are about adding texture to the hair to give the eye something to look at," says Dizon.
Which will keep you -- and everyone who looks at you -- from getting bored by your hair. "Whether women wear it long or short, they often don't know what to do with it. Hair accessories can change up your look without you having to make a drastic change."
