16 Hair Accessories to Keep You Queenin’

@naturallikeme

Am I the only one who would totally wear a crown and glitzy accessories on a random day? I don’t mean to a wedding or a formal event, but to make a statement especially on those days when I am feeling my hair. Sometimes being a little extra is good, especially if you are having an uninspiring hair day. For real though, who says I have to save the glitzy stuff for formal occasions?

I’ve come to an impasse with my hair and I figure I need to throw in some accessories. On a bid to give my hair time to recover from back to back bouts of postpartum shedding I haven’t been doing much to it. Ok, so that’s a cop-out, I really don’t do much unless it’s a special occasion.

But let’s face it, if we should be honest, hair care can be a bit humdrum when you keep doing the same things; wash day on Sundays, twist from Sunday to Tuesday, twist-out Wednesday to Friday, updo or bun on Saturday, start the cycle over. Even a bomb wig or crochet can lose its wow factor because the novelty eventually rubs off.



When it comes to appearance, I don’t know any girl who doesn’t like to shake things up every once in a while. Accessories provide opportunities for us to stay poppin’. Here are some accessories to help you serve up some black girl magic while you’re Queenin’.

 

1. Punk women Chic Hairband Hair Comb Clip Wrap Cuff Pin Head Band Chains Tassel

A  basic chain to polish your updo, worn at the front or the back looks great. It’s simple and adds a certain finesse to the whole look. I can see this being worn with the right business suit to a presentation. It could even make an appearance at a party. 

2. Bohemian Diamond Pearl Hair Band Alice Band

This would look great against a halo braid or a high bun. I can even see it topping off a braid out or twist out. Date night perhaps?

3. 22” Crystal Strand Clips

These I would save for a party. Did someone say clubbin’?

4. Gold Leaf Crown

I see this in a picked out fro or a voluminous twist out.

5. Feathered Fascinator

These would go well with a slinky little black dress or perhaps a brown one. I wouldn’t even wear the whole set in one go.

6. Boho Chic Hair Wreath


This screams summer with a white tank top, ripped jeans and sandals or a maxi dress.

7. Wood Look Banana Clip

This is simple enough for everyday wear to gather up your curls in a side sweep or leave them hanging in the back with your bangs left out.

8. Natural Shell Hair Band

Bonfire get together or beach party?

9. Micro Fiber UV Protection Headband Set

Think of the possibilities with these colors.

10. Glitter Headband

Party over here!

11. Wooden Beads

Fulani braids anyone?

12. Hair Pendant

Jazz up those box braids or twists.

13. Hair Bandeau

Work, party, beach? Whatever.

14. PuffCuff

I would classify this as a tool for everyday use.

15. Hair Cuffs

These go great on braids, twists, updos, you name it. It depends on your style.

16. Loc Coil Wraps

Dreadlock coil wraps make the perfect accessories for your locs, faux locs, braids or twists.

So which of these would you rock?

About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing.After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.
