The One Hair Accessory That All Our Fashion Friends Are Wearing Right Now

So far this year, I've rounded up the team to give the prettiest headbands and hair clips a trial run, looked to France for cool new ways to wear hair accessories and uncovered a trending new hair clip brand that London girls are wearing. Yes, my love of hair accessories in 2019 is strong, which is why I'm so excited that the fashion set is embracing a new one: the hair scarf.

Chic, elegant and oh so stylish, the humble hair scarf looks set to be the hair accessory of the summer, and I can see why. It's just so versatile. Wear it twisted around a bun or to top a half-up, half-down style; weave it into a braid or wrap it over your roots to disguise second-day hair. The possibilities are endless.

I adore how Michelle has weaved this printed hair scarf through her French braid to add a pop of color. To try this at home, knot the scarf around a few strands of hair at the top of your head before you start braiding.

L.A.-based skin expert Simone folds her hair scarf in half diagonally and ties over her curls for a cool Californian summer look. 

I'll be channeling Parisian AnneLaure at the beach this summer with this cute hair scarf twisted into her tousled topknot. If you're not adept at styling hair accessories (like me), then there are plenty of scrunchie-scarf options out there too, like this one from Urban Outfitters.

Proving that hair scarves don't have to be complicated, Anisa tops her wavy lob with a printed scarf for elegant results. I'll be trying this out on days when I'm in between hair washes.

On days when you've scraped your hair back into a bun to dash out the door quickly, make like Yatri and complete the look with a silk scarf to elevate your entire look in moments.

This is so cute. I love Ada's swept-back strands topped with this silk knotted ribbon for a cool off-duty look.
