STYLIST ADVICE
Summer’s Hottest Hair Accessories

In one memorable episode of Sex and The City, Carrie Bradshaw fired the fatal shot to the poor little scrunchie, expressing her horror upon spotting a woman wearing the much-maligned hair accessory in public. Right now, however, a handful of chic hair accessories, paired with some of the season’s hottest hairstyles, would earn Carrie’s stamp of fashionista approval. Matrix Artistic Directors reveal the best.

The Accessory: Floral headband
Pair With: Loose, beachy waves
Matrix says: Go for a music festival vibe and wear your headband like a crown – or a hippie.
Tip: Design Pulse Get Action Spray Wax gives waves flexible hold and a modern, satiny finish. 

The Accessory: Skinny, sparkly band
Pair With: Big, Bardot-inspired bun
Matrix says: Encircle your sky-high, retro updo with a whimsical touch of bling.

Tip: Before teasing tresses, mist each section with Vavoom Shape Maker Medium Hold Hairspray for touchable-yet-powerful hold.

The Accessory: Heirloom brooch
Pair With: Knotted chignon
Matrix says: Raid the Downton Abbey wardrobe closet for a Deco-style bauble. Nestled in the center of a messy chignon, it imparts instant elegance.
Tip: Twists look modern with a textured foundation so if your hair lacks natural wave or curl, twirl strands around a curling iron before fashioning your knot. Mist each section with a heat protective formula like Biolage Thermal Active Setting Spray before it makes contact with the iron.
