2018 Hair Accessory Trends (Spring&Summer)

Spring is the theme of renewal and rebirth, while summer is always about shining in the longest days and warmest months.

Not a big surprise, one of the fashion symbols of the 2018 season is flowers, no matter real or fake. Another hairstyle trend is low ponytails, which can be wrapped in several different ways. If hair accessories are your thing, you should definitely read through the following numerous options! You will definitely get some great ideas for your beauty decoration for 2018 spring and summer seasons.

#1. Pearl Pieces

Pearl encrusted hair accessories can always easily catch the light, just right from each angle and add a touch of grace to every head of hair. No matter the headpiece has multiple sized pearls or just one, it can definitely offer you a pretty eye-catching feature. Isn't it beautiful to just hold up a messy bun with a pearl encrusted pin in a very simple design?

#2. Rhinestones

Rhinestones adorned hair accessories are always a great choice to get an extra bit of bling and sparkle without stealing the spotlight of your beautiful hair, no matter long or short, straight or curl. It will definitely help you shine in the crowd regardless of where the rhinestones are affixed to, either the center or side part of the headpiece.

#4. Low Ponytail Holder Hair Wraps

Hair wraps allow for multi purposing. Taking this style and picking out a wrap with great colors and a desired material not only gives you a fantastic and great look, but also means no need for extra attention to your hair. Why not get several hair wraps in some vibrant colors to play with, dress up in a new trendy low ponytail, wrapped from the base to about mid down with a silk scarf, or lace and ribbon wrap, or try a leather or perspex wrap?

#5. Scrunchies

Hair scrunchies are back! One of the Eighties’ most polarizing accessories, scrunchie, has recently begun attracting wider appreciation, and fashion followers have already extended a warm “welcome back” to it. Elevated from a convenience to a trend, why not try to tie one loosely on your low ponytail for a casual look on air-dried hair? A new set of scrunchies in your wardrobe definitely could be fun! 


#6. Flowers and Flower Crowns

Flowers are always women’s forever love, and one of the eternity symbol in the fashion world. No matter your hair decorated with only one soft cloth flower or piled with multiple fresh flowers, no matter the flower accessories are placed with pattern or without pattern, the effect is always feminine, stunning, romantic, and perfect in a very real way. Moreover, ultra large flower crowns have become one of the most opulent hair accessory trends for spring and summer 2018.

#7. Black Hair Ties

Several famous designers have showcased what they used and how they had ponytails held securely in place early this year during some fashion shows. Guess what they used? Yes! It is the very common forever classic black hair tie, which almost every girl uses on a daily basis. Black hair tie is a quick and easy addition to a morning routine, but fortunately makes its own way to be a part of 2018 hair accessory trend.

#8. Bobby Pins

Being grouped interestingly and placed artistically in the hair, Bobby pins have gradually been building in popularity and eventually officially belong to the spring/summer 2018 hair accessory trend. For example, you can easily line up multiple stylized bobby pins to hold hair behind the ears to give a overall stunning look. Don't you think it’s very cool to interlace multiple bobby pins in the hair and show off your styled creativity?
