Cool hair accessories

Lend your locks pizzazz with one of these unique hair accessories.


These rippled alloy sticks from local salon Alibi NYC allow you to create chic, deceptively loose chignons without having to use a million bobby pins (or a pencil!). Simply gather your hair into a low pony, twist your tail and coil it at the nape of your neck, then insert the wand upward and back down through your knot. Grab the elastic, wrap it around your bun, and slip the metal ball into its socket for a secure hold. Use one of the matte colors to blend into your hair or grab a metallic style for a glitzy accent. Alibi NYC hair wands, $22 each, at Alibi 25 Salon, 11 W 25th St between Broadway and Sixth Aves, suite 2 (212-924-7300)


After suffering from headaches caused by too-tight headbands, New Jersey designer Mary Beirne created her signature zipper version, which features adjustable elastic straps for creating the proper fit. In addition to being comfortable, the hairpiece is versatile (it can be worn seven different ways, depending on how you unfasten it and position it on your noggin). Our favorite style is this delicate lace crown, which can be unzipped and donned as a simple nude band on days when you’re feeling less than regal. gla.MAR.ous Madeline headband, $40, at shopglamarous.com


We’ve lost count of how many times our moms have scolded us for sporting unsightly hair bands around our wrist for easy access. So when we spotted this chic tie—embellished with 14-karat gold and silver-plated beads—that moonlights as a bracelet, we knew we’d found the perfect end to her chiding. Chilly Jilly the Duelette hair ties, $15 each, at chillyjilly.com


Who knew that just a few simple metal chains could make such a dramatic statement? Wear the delicate headpiece clipped into flowing locks like a bohemian crown or let it cascade over a ponytail à la Kim Kardashian. Infinite Visage silver hair chain, $10, at infinitevisage.etsy.com


Amp up a basic ponytail with these edgy chain-link hair ties, which can be stacked together for an even more badass look. One Crown in Glory Heavy Metal hair ties, $25 each, at onecrowninglory.com
