You might collect handbags, crystals or royal family memorabilia. Hell, you might even still collect Pokémon cards (and that's totally cool), but the thing that team Byrdie has managed to amass a rather large collection of in the past few months? Hair accessories. We simply cannot get enough of them.
With the power to elevate a ponytail, amp up a messy bun or play up your natural hair texture, hair accessories are like the jewellery of the hair world. They're the finishing touch that can pull a whole look together (and with minimal effort).
Plus, hair accessories have come a long way since the days of butterfly clips and scrunchies. Don't believe us? Take a look at the 11 clips, bands and ties below and tell us it's not true.
This clever headband by Urban Outfitters gives the impression you're wearing a headscarf—without the fiddly knotting.
It's probably the flashiest barrette you'll come across all summer, but that's exactly why we love it.
No longer will a simple ponytail suffice—you need to amp it up with the use of a ponytail holder. This one from & Other Stories is probably the chicest we've spotted so far.
Scrunchies are back with a vengeance, so you might as well go all out with House of Lafayette's red velvet bow version.
Clip back your fringe in this sweat-inducing weather with one of ASOS's pastel-coloured hair clips, and you'll give off major Margot Robbie vibes.
Orelia's blue moon will add interest to a simple half-up, half-down style.
Part your hair in the centre and wear this major Versace hair slide slotted just above the ear.
Like the butterfly clips of your pre-teens, only way cooler. Use Anthropologie's mini clips to pin back flyaways.
Feel like you've overdone it on the shell trend this summer? Try seaweed instead.
These are perfect for a summer wedding. You can slide River Island's hair grips into an updo. You can also use them to hold back your hair part.
Want to buy the lot? We don't blame you.
