Hair accessories aren't a trend that should be left on the red carpet. Add the finishing touch to any ensemble with anything from a perfectly-placed pin to an oversized headdress, and make a statement this summer...

Hair accessories can mean the difference between creating a great hairstyle, and making an impact. The finishing touch to any ensemble, a floral headdress, a netted veil or just a simple, well-placed hair pin could be the making of a seriously impressive statement ‘do.

It’s the red carpet glamazons that are giving hair accessories a good name this season. From Lupita Nyong’o to girl-of-the-moment Lily Collins, showstopper Kate Hudson to the achingly cool Diane Kruger, it seems every stylish celeb worth their salt is making hair accessorising the ‘it’ thing for AW15.

And with wedding season in full bloom, there’s no better time to experiment with wedding hair accessories.

Tempted by a floral garland? Take Sienna Miller’s ethereal Tony Awards headdress as an inspiration. Beautifully laced with golden flowers to set off her elegant high bun, this style can work well for both evening glamour and even the festival scene.

Or if you’re looking for something more contemporary, try Josephine De La Baume’s coral-coloured crown, worn on the front of the head to make a perfect red carpet hair accessory.

Subtle styles can be seen on the likes of Keira Knightley and Taylor Swift, and provides the perfect inspo for any late summer parties.

While fashion-forward brides-to-be should look to sleek hairbands to add a little something extra to their wedding day look.

So if you feel like your outfit needs that little extra something, take inspiration from these A-listers and add the finishing touch to your hairstyle.
