We are the business

We’ve all been there. Things go a little south and suddenly you want to chop all your hair off. Especially after Tinder Trauma or a good ol’ fashioned heartbreak. But the drastic-diva chop is not a decision that should be taken lightly. Sure, it’s tempting to want to lob all your hair off – and that temptation only spikes after seeing how good Rihanna looks with a pixie crop. But luckily, there are lots of ways to funk up your vibe without reaching for the scissors. I’m talking about killer hair accessories and the killer power they have. I was lucky enough to get the royal treatment from some experts (big love to the superstars at Brighton Salon, Beverly Hills), armed with an array of exquisite, fun and funky and hair accessories that cost less than a cup of coffee (seriously, we used La-Ta-Da’s amazing range, available at Target). Because let’s face it, when you’ve got hot hair, you’re in date mode. So here we go…5 great looks and 5 great dates, just for you!


#1 The Accidentally Hot

This one’s great for those coffees that turn into dates, for your friend-of-friend’s birthday drinks set to be full of perfect strangers or that job interview for the job you don’t really want, but the potential boss that you actually do. It’s casual. It’s effortless. But it’s undeniably sexy. Remember, neck is good.

 Hair - Accidentally Hot

How It’s Done:

  • First things first, add volume and lots of it. Get the curler out and go to town. Beach chic is the name of the game.
  • Then, sweep half your hair back loosely and clip it just behind your ear.
  • Your hair will spill down naturally… but keep that neck on view.

We Used: Brushed Gold Bar Barrette


#2 The LBD

People always tell you to dress for the job you want. But they forget to tell you to dress for the date (and the guy) you want. This little do is best paired with your trusty LBD – that one that never lets you down. This look is not for any old date. But when you do crank it out, you know it’s on. He’s worth it. You’re worth it. And that’s all there is to it.

Hair - LBD

How It’s Done:

  • Same as above. Get that curler and give it all you’ve got.
  • Take a small chunk of hair that frames your face and pull it back tight and twist it into a bun – use bobby pins as you go
  • Slip a gorgeous barrette right through the top of it… voila!

We Used: Black Stone Pearl Jeweled Hair Pin


# 3 The Alter Ego

Let’s take a moment to show alter-egos some love. Some of the best music and art has come to us through some pretty epic, eccentric and excellent alter-egos… Thank you Beyoncé, David Bowie, Sasha Baron Cohen, Stephen Colbert and Prince. Alter-egos are a chance to push your own boundaries and stretch beyond your default settings. And given that you can do all this without cutting, cropping or bleaching your hair, that’s a pretty amazing feat.

Hair - Alter Ego

How It’s Done:

  • Straighten your hair, the sleeker the better, along a side part
  • Pull back your hair on the small side – make it tight!
  • Then clip, clip, clip and clip some more! The more the better, and don’t be afraid to mish-mash the styles

We Used: Brushed Gold Metallic Bobby Slides & Geometric Bobby Pins


# 4 The “I Woke Up Like This”

This one’s for the lazy girl in all of us. We know she’s there, and she deserves a shout-out every now and then. Amazingly, you can sleep on this do and be good to go the next day. Yep, there are some hair accessories that you can sleep on and not feel. It’s quite remarkable. This means you can hit the snooze button without worry, or rock the morning-after-an –accidental-sleepover like never before! You’re welcome!

Hair - Sleep On It

How It’s Done:

  • Make your hair straight, sleek and smooth
  • Pull half of it back, then feed your hair from one side through the loop clip
  • Clip the other side of your hair underneath

We Used: Brushed Gold Circle Barrette


#5 The Sweat Me Up

This is a date of a different kind… and perhaps even a potential date. After all, the gym is swarming with healthy, hot, glowing bodies getting their sweat on. It makes sense to turn up looking naturally fierce. Especially as your sexy workout gear probably cost more than your annual membership. And if you need any more convincing that working out in style is a good thing, remember that brunch always tastes better after yoga.

Hair - Active

How It’s Done:

  • Pull half (or all) your hair off your face and tie it with a tassle tie
  • Whack on a headband and off you go!
  • There’s not even a third step

We Used: White Tassel Hair Ties & Faux Leather & Gold Twist Headbands
