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: Stylelink Texture Builder 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 before it makes contact with the iron.
