Looking at SS16, it's no surprise to see runways filled with hair accessories in all shapes and sizes. Judging from the ubiquitous appearance at each show hairbands, headpieces and hair accessories is a trend that is set to stay! Couture pieces have been perfectly complemented and completed with show stopping head pieces seen at Saint Laurent, Chloe and Anna Sui to name but a few.

The accessory trend has not stopped at hair, Mary Katrantzou embraced the opulent effect of the choker, also seen at Dior, where a conceptual version was created when jewels were layered over pastel pieces of fabric, twisted around both the throat and hair.

The Mianna choker, available in various colours, channels these vibes and also has accents of Balmain with amazing lace and tassel pieces as seen in the Spring Summer 2016 collection.

Crowns have also been hinted at with Dolce & Gabbana’s lush garlands and Rodarte’s Grecian-esque golden barrettes. Saint Laurent's wowed us with rock ’n’ roll misfits sporting tiaras—proof that, with the right hair accessory, you too can be queen for a day.
Coco Chanel once said, “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” Fasten any of these head pieces or accessories into unwashed lengths or tuck one into an elegant updo and your hair will instantly broadcast a bit of both. 
There is not better example of this than myself last Saturday night. Having left it it late to get an appointment with my amazing hairdresser Steph, I was faced with the daunting task of beautifying my barnet!
Queue the new OPHELIA star headpiece! I simply scraped my hair back and fixed the gorgeous, swarovski encrusted accessory around my head. Voila... a unique, eye-catching way to tun my sad locks into a perfect Saturday night winner!
