My hair frizzes in the heat and humidity, and when that happens, all I want to do is pull it back and be done with it. Some days, I just grab a hair elastic and call it good enough, but lately I’ve been feeling more adventuresome, and I think this brass ponytail holder, for starters, is just so elegant.
I couldn’t decide which of these acrylic barrettes from Rachel Comey I liked best, so I just decided to show you them all.
This orbital hairpin is like a stylishly updated version of the hippie-ish leather ones (see below).
In the summertime, I go through these plastic hairpins like water, so I order them in bulk. They’re cheap and they get the job done.
Butterfly clips work well, but I don’t like how most of them look. This striped number is pretty fantastic, though.
This brass hairpin looks really streamlined and like it costs a lot more than it does.
Scrunchies have been enjoying such a comeback that I could easily just have done a post on them alone, but in the end, I decided just to show you this spiff plaid one and leave it at that. (OK, I also like this glittery specimen, as well as this set of five striped ones.)
This leather hairpin is very summer-camp-counselor-in-the-craft-shed, but I think in the black it gets kind of chic.
