We don’t mean this in the good old fashioned way of standing out in a crowd, statement pins are the brand new version of loud behaviour. Wear your mood on your hair with these hair accessories that come in various cheeky phrases. Look out for them at Lovisa who have a silver and gold range.

Since girly hair accessories are having a fashion moment in the spotlight, it makes sense that the humble alice band is back on-trend. Forget school girl chic, this season the more chunky, embellished or textured your headband the better. For a more delicate look, princess tiaras are also making a comeback as seen on a number of Spring/Summer runways.

Solange served us hairclip and barette nostalgia on the artwork for her last album A Seat at the Table and it seems the love affair with girly hair accessories continues. This season it’s the turn of the super humble bobby pin only this time we’re not worried about burying them into our hairstyles so they’re invisible. The bobby pin now takes the spotlight with options in colour, silver, gold,rose gold finishes or glittered. You can go wild and messy all over your head or neat and geometric in a corner or at the back to give a simple do the glam effect.

Jewellery has moved from the body to hair this season and celebs, models on runways and fashion forward women have been spotted wearing  pendant rings on their crowns.  These are similar to the golden and silver cuffs that dominated braids and locs over the last two years and are perfect to add some uniqueness to any hairstyle.


The headwrap has been part of female style expression for years now. The greatest liberation came when headwraps moved from being cover ups for bad hair days or for bedtime to being legitimate fashion statements and hair accessories. These are great for any season and any ocassion, go with a bold print for day and shift to silk for the evening. For bold print head wraps check out  www.kangamama.co.za and Kisua online.
