Four Fun Ways to Use Hair Accessories

A hair accessory is just a hair accessory…or is it? As with fashion, when it comes to hair, no fabulous look is complete without a statement accessory. These hair clips, headbands, flowers, and pins help spice up an otherwise mundane look and can help you stand out in a crowd.

But there are only so many ways you can wear a headband before you get stuck in a hair accessory rut, am I right, ladies? So before you go ahead and retire your accessories to the box of yesteryear’s faves, BeautyStat has a few creative uses for some of our favorite new Goody hair accessories available at drugstores nationwide. Take our advice and you’ll get a bit more mileage out of these beautiful gems.

1) Accessorize your favorite one-shouldered dress.

If your fave one-shouldered dress seems a little…well, boring…try adding a little pop of interest on the shoulder with a fancy hair clip from Goody.

Are you a glamour girl looking for a bit of shine? Try some Majesty Bobbies. Or are you more the type of gal who favors a simpler look? Opt for the brand’s Ouchless Comfort Hold Clip. Do you love flowers? Add some flower power with Goody’s Captivating Salon Clips.

Whatever accessory you choose, just make sure you opt for a color that complements your dress nicely!

2) Lock hair in place when working out.

All you exercise junkies out there will understand when I say how annoying out of hair place is when you’re trying to work out. Sometimes, your short layers just don’t want to stay in a ponytail or bun, so you turn to bobby pins to keep them in place.

Goody Ornate_Headbands

Instead of spending several minutes pinning back your hair, save yourself some time and get going to the gym faster by sliding on Goody’s Ornate or No Squeeze Headbands. Both add a chic pop of style to your gym ‘do and make drooping layers a thing of the past!

3) Dress up your updo.

There are some women who can rock a chic updo like it’s nobody’s business, but for some women, updos just make you look like a balding middle-aged man. While a fun hair accessory won’t solve this problem, it will certainly spice up the look, drawing less attention to you and more attention to your hair accessory.

Goody Opulent_Headbands

We think these navy and marron Opulent Headbands from Goody are the perfect way to add a little pizzazz to your chignon or ponytail.

4) Make a loose outfit more flattering.

Have you ever wondered how clothes seem to fit mannequins and catalog models like a glove? Well, one size certainly doesn’t fit all, and these models get a bit of help sometimes.

Goody Ladylke_ClawClips

When an article of clothing is just a bit too big, it helps to clip it in the back so it photographs better. Now while this works in stores and in catalogs, you’re not likely to need this trick too often. But in case you get caught in an unflattering, baggy outfit (hey, we all have our fashion faux pas!), make sure you’re ready for your close-up. Stash one of these chic Ladylike Claw Clips in your clutch, quickly excuse yourself to clip back the excess material, and you’ll be camera ready in a flash!

Tell us, have you used your hair accessories for anything other than your hair?
