Headbands have come a long way since the days when they were all Blair Waldorf would wear. Now, they're doubling in size and embellished with pearls, satin, and velvet galore. The trend has been gaining steam on Instagram, so we only expected to see more of these jumbo headbands.


If you ask me, braids never really went away, but now they're re-emerging a major fall hair trend, and we couldn't be happier. Keep it simple with one braid down your back or split them into pigtails—bonus points for tying in some pretty embellishments à la Nnenna Echem below.


This super-sleek hair look will guarantee your outfit looks that much more elevated. Whether you slick your hair back into a bun or tuck the strands behind your ears, the following hair looks prove just how cool it looks. To achieve it, use a bit of hair gel and comb it through your roots.


Yep, scrunchies are still going strong, so don't ditch all your favorites just yet. For fall, it's going to be all about the statement-making scrunchie—think oversize shapes, luxurious silk, and dreamy organza—to really make your ponytail or bun the center of your look.


Vacation season may be over, but you can still live out your best retro beachside look by tying a silk scarf around your head. With endless ways to tie one in your hair—tie it into a braid, fold it into a triangle and tie it over your hair, or knot it at the top of your head—this is one accessory you'll never tire of.
