While the usual low-slung pony is great for day-to-day, holiday party season provides the ideal opportunity to experiment with a different style. That’s why we’ve teamed up with one of our favorite sites, Beauty High. Each week, they’ll be sending over a few runway shots to inspire you to try something new for your upcoming festive fetes.
We saw plenty of creative hair accessories on the fall/winter runways, and there’s no better time to experiment with some fun hair bling than at a holiday party. Below is some inspiration from a variety of shows—certainly enough to get you through this season!

The bright bobby pins used at Cacharel are the perfect, easy accessory to add some color and flair to any hairstyle. Whether you’re pulling your hair back into a ponytail or simply leaving it loose, using a few bright pins like these twisted bobby one from Wet Seal ($6.50) or these eye-catching ones from Jane Tran ($12) to clip your hair behind your ear will help give your style a refined edge.
We have a deep, abiding love for all things fashion, which is why we often turn to stylish online boutique ModCloth to snag everything from chunky, bold bracelets to fancy frocks. This week, we asked the ModCloth fashion mavens to impart some of their style wisdom to us—and therefore you.
With warm weather (hopefully) just around the corner, it’s time to break out those spring dresses and let your hair down. Headbands are the ideal accessory for springtime looks, offering an easy way to dress up undone styles whether your hair is long or short. Here, I’ve styled three easy-to-achieve looks that can be finished in minutes!

I’ve always loved Emily Schuman’s adorable blog Cupcakes and Cashmere. And while getting my daily dose recently, I saw this great post about jeweled headbands. “Since jewelry felt too constricting, I wore it in my hair,” she writes. Totally inspired, I decided to do a little more research on jeweled headbands and found some seriously cute options.
I really like this look because it’s totally acceptable for day, but also perfect for a night out. (Although personally, I don’t think I’d wear it across my forehead, but rather atop my head in the more traditional fashion.) Since I am determined to incorporate this style into my wardrobe, I already know that my plans this weekend will entail shopping for sparkly hair accessories.
