5 Runway Inspired Ways to Decorate Your Hair This Summer

If you're finding yourself a tad bored with your hairstyle lately, then try accessorizing your 'do. Start with these 5 ideas pulled straight from the spring runways to decorate your hair.

Honor Spring 2013 embellished braid

Crystals: Just when we thought we couldn’t adore the braid trend more, Honor goes and adds faceted crystal embellishments. Adding a little sparkle is such a fun way to elevate a go-to hairstyle.

Get the look: Follow our boho braid tutorial, then randomly tuck in crystal hairpins as shown.

Thakoon hairstyle with bobby pins

Bobby pins: The bobby pins you’re using to keep those low buns and braids in place can also double as hair decorations. This fashion forward hairstyle spotted at Thakoon will work for keeping hair out of your face this summer.

Get the look: Slick hair back with Paul Mitchell Extra Body Sculpting Gel, then secure bobby pins at the back of the head.  Curl the loose hair and wrap elastic towards the end.

fendi spring 2013 colorful headbands

Colorful headbands: The candy colored headbands featured at Fendi’s spring show inspired this post! Use one to punctuate a pixie or add flair to a topknot.

Get the look: If you’re running short on time in the morning run Sebastian Taming Elixir through wet hair. Next, secure into a quick updo and add a bright headband for instant style.

DKNY+Spring+2013+fitted caps

Fitted caps: Head out this summer in a borrowed from the boys fitted cap. They’re already a street style favorite being paired with everything from dresses and sneakers to jeans with heels.

Get the look: To mimic the tomboy chic style featured at DKNY, throw a fitted cap over second day hair or clean hair styled with Wella Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray.


Scarves:  When the weather heats up adorn your mane with a colorful scarf. Tie one on Rosie the Riveter style or go turban chic for a low maintenance summer style.

Get the look: Take notes from the models seen at the Marc by Marc Jacobs spring show by fashioning a scarf over an undone updo.

The best thing about these hair decor ideas, is that you probably already own everything you need to pull them off.

For the love of hair,
