Hair accessories are having a serious moment this season. Hairstylist Matthew Collins shows us some of his favourite pieces and how to wear them.   

HAIR-ACCESSORIES-624X351-(2).png
LOOK 1: THE CLIPPED TWIST
This is a simple look, but with a great clip or two, you can completely change and elevate a basic twist.

HOW-TO:
  1. First, set hair with slight texture.
  2. Next, spray an ample amount of texture spray and into hair and fasten in a low pony leaving soft pieces out in front.
  3. Now, twist the pony up and clip into place with a ponytail clip or two long clips placed one on top of the other.
  4. To ensure clip stays in place, slip a bobby pin over the clips to secure.
  5. Finally, pull twist apart slightly for a soft, romantic look.

LOOK 2: THE WRAPPED PONY
The low ponytail is a big hair trend this season. It’s a sleek and simple look, but by adding just the right accessories, you can easily add a lot of interest.

HOW-TO:
  1. First, set hair with texture if your hair isn’t naturally wavy or curly.
  2. Next, grab two sections of hair from either side, leaving lots of hair at the nape of the neck out.
  3. Create two small ponytails – one on each side – and wrap metallic cord from your local craft store around the elastic and down each ponytail about an inch.
  4. Lastly, connect the two ponytails through the metallic cord on each with a large embellished hair pin or brooch. If you’re working with smaller pins, use three pins to finish off the look.

LOOK 3: THE RAKED WAVE
Add a metallic hair comb or two into a deeply side-parted wave for a bit of extra glam.

HOW-TO:
  1. Before drying hair, add lots of mousse to root area which will support volume.
  2. Next, create a deep side part followed by a strong wave with a curling iron; brush out well and add texture powder to roots.
  3. Now, backcomb the area where you’re going to use your hair combs about an inch above the roots using a “C” motion.
  4. Finally, spray the small side back and fasten into place with your clips just behind the ear. For extra security, add a couple of bobby pins vertically over the combs.
