Most of the time my greys don’t bother me, but on days when I’m feeling particularly low I’ll admit I’d rather just pretend they don’t exist. This is fine in winter when I can just hide them under a hat but what about in the unforgiving summer sunlight? Well it turns out this summer it’s about accessorising not disguising, so I’ve put together a list of hair accessories especially for making the most of your luscious grey locks.

This summer’s hottest trend in hair is accessories galore, think cute headbands, scrunchies, bows and claw clips. Could this really be time to relieve the Fergie-bow joy of my youth? 

One shop that seems to be knocking it out of the park this season is Anthropologie. If you’re closely following this year’s hair accessory trends then do check out their fab selection of beautifully patterned pieces. I was particularly drawn to these cute headbands.

Some women can pull off the headscarf look with grace and finesse. I am well aware that I am sadly not one of those women. However, if you are able to carry off this style then this beauty would be a great way to accessorise a simple white t, blazer and jeans.

For days when you want to get out of the house quickly I’ve found these budget-friendly knot headbands from New Look a really handy way to get your hair out of your face.

Barrette’s work really well on medium or long styles as you can clip back a ponytail in a jiffy.

Have fun experimenting!
