These street-style shots from all over the world are sure to set off feelings of sartorial envy. They'll also likely inspire you to be more adventurous with your hair accessories. Scarves, turbans, headbands, and hats are all essentials during the Summer months, both to keep you cool and to add color to your ensemble. Mimic these fashionable ladies when styling your hair, and soon you'll be the one turning heads.
Summer is all about pulling together effortless looks, and the easiest way to beat the heat and still look chic is to throw a turban into the mix. And we recently spotted two simple ways to style this celebrity-favorite hair accessory.
Eva Mendes, the master of stylish hair accessories, showed a fast way to update the classic topknot: with a turban. Vanessa Hudgens also embraced the knotted head wrap, styling her strands down and slightly textured. However you choose to wear it, a turban is also a great way to disguise greasy roots or unruly frizz, making it an ideal option for second- or (dare we say it) third-day hair. You can steal their Summer style with these shopping picks below.
- Traditional with a twist: These little accessories are the perfect blend of functional and stylish, as Nicole showcased at the Cannes Film Festival. Style the top of your hair with plenty of volume, slick the sides toward the back, and secure with an embellished barrette or two.
- In alignment: Two barrettes stacked on top of each other make for an interesting (and functional) look, like Cara's accented sideswept style. Stacking also looks gorgeous with a handful of bobby pins.
- Classic with curls: Zooey displayed the easiest and most classic way to wear your barrette: in a chic half-updo. Add some loose curls to your hair before teasing around the crown. Gather the hair from your ears up at the back of your head and secure with your barrette. The bolder the better.
At long last, The Great Gatsby has finally hit theaters across the country, and we cannot wait to see the latest version of this classic story. The main reason? The incredible beauty looks that came out of the '20s. Headbands and hair pieces were huge components of the hair looks of that time, and Daisy Buchanan, played by Carey Mulligan, sports a bevy of them throughout the film. Looking to add a little Gatsby flair to your hairstyle? Learn how to create a faux bob, get inspired by celebrities wearing Roaring Twenties-era styles, and shop our picks for perfect headbands below.
It seems Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning had the same idea this weekend at the GLAAD Media Awards -- it's all about a blonde in a headband. Kirsten paired her leather Emilio Pucci LBD with smoky eye makeup and a satin ribbon hairband. Her hair had a voluminous tease at the crown and tucked-in bangs giving a nod to the '60s. On the other hand, Elle wore a modern middle part with a sparkling floral wreath hair accessory for an enchanting look. Which look do you prefer: Kirsten's retro style or Elle's sweet, modern take?
Kerry Washington is a big fan of headbands, and she's worn them at a bevy of red carpet appearances, including her Django Unchained press tour. But her delicate silver number at the Human Rights Campaign Los Angeles Gala Dinner last night renewed our faith in these hair accessories being wearable and not overwhelming the rest of the outfit. Whether you're keeping your fringe off your face or adding some femininity to an otherwise simple style, a thin silver headband is an ace hair accessory to have in your arsenal. Inspired by Kerry's pretty headband? Shop the look below!
If you're lucky enough to have a little girl who actually keeps a bow in her hair for longer than 30 seconds, not any boring, old hair clip will do.

You'll find glitter, tulle, wild animals, and so much more featured on these bows, so keep clicking and start stocking up!
Cold weather means it's time to pull out your favorite headwear. But what makeup works best when you're wearing a brim? Fedora, floppy, or fascinator — whatever your choice of hat this season, find out how to play up your cosmetics palette to match.
Coy kiss: A bold hat deserves an equally bold makeup statement. Apply a bright lipstick shade like British radio and TV presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford to balance out the look. This works especially well with floppy hats that cascade over the eyes.
Casually capped: Mad Men actress Abigail Spencer decided to go for a more natural makeup palette with her brown fedora. However, the slight flush on cheeks and lips is the perfect look for a daytime event, while extralong lashes draw the eye upward.
Eye candy: It's instinct to stray from eye makeup when your face is hidden under a wide brim, but why not take that opportunity to show off your peek-a-boo style? Try a swipe of matching shadow in a winged-out style on the lids. Model Tali Lennox paired her plum fedora with dark purple shadows and nude gloss. This combination will complement, not conflict with, your headwear.
