Our MM Guide to Next-level Hair Accessories


The newest drop of hair accessories will make you feel like you’re at Coachella (even when you’re not).

The basic blowdry, top knot and bun just got an upgrade with clips, barrettes, hair chains, beads and scrunchies that give a modern take on the 90’s bobby pin trend!

Whether you’re bored with your hairstyle, want a chic way to keep a fringe off your face or want to make a chic statement on the dance floor, the tools will elevate a function to an art.

These are autumn’s go-to accessories for embellishing braids, giving freshness to a side part, or just giving new kudos to your current style.

Here are the brands on my radar for that Coachella-inspired festival feel.




8 Other Reasons

For the chicest resin, steel and pearl-embellished accessories, this range is a modern option. I think this brand rocks on that low-key girl who pairs $20 skinny black op-shop jeans with a Chanel Boy bag. Keep your hair similarly easy with a smooth blow-dry.  Let the clip be the major focal point with a barely there, fresh face. 





Kela is my go-to for gorgeous festival hair. They have the best selection of fun, cool and playful clips and charms to embellish fishtail plaits and textured ‘cool girl’ hair. For that boho look, try the feathered hair chain peeking from under a half-up do. Alternatively, pepper golden hair beads through wave strands for a nonchalant halo. This range is vast to open up infinite styling options that won’t slip or damage your hair.





The world is your oyster when Scunci’s awesome range empowers you to get creative with your tresses at home. There are jaw clips, hair elastics, scrunchies, dent-free pony-tailers, bobby pins and headbands… all in a massive range of styles, colours and textures! I love their big steel clips for a classy way to contain a low pony, while the knitted head wrap is also a totally cute option as we enter those cooler months. 





The Scrunchie Bunch & Co

The humble scrunchie is having a moment! If there’s ever time to own this comeback, it is now – these guys have the perfect pattern, colour and print to go with any of-the-moment look.  Simply use to secure your bun and ponytail in your preferred position, or casually wrap around your wrist incase you need a hair tie. This week, why try a high pony styled with a big hoodie for that Sophia Richie off-duty look?  




Roxy’s Pix

Feeling prim and proper? Then take cue from my Business Kween Roxy Jacenko as she launches a range of chic head bands and bows for the classic gal at heart. Her muse prefers a long black in Europe (usually) over a Long Island Ice Tea at Coachella. She sips on coffee and fine wine in bookish little bars and loves to shop on Avenue des Champs Elysées in a pair of Channel Replica Sandals. Having her perfectly manicured toes be trampled on by a thousand party-goers on the Palm Springs dance floor is only an occasional idea of fun. Celebrate the classics with 14 elegant shades of bows and Alice bands in smooth satin and delicious velvet.
