This year has been a bit different to say the least, but one thing we are happy about is the extra excitement for Christmas! After a rollercoaster of a year, are you starting your Christmas preparations a little earlier too?
We've put together a list of hair accessories that we think would make amazing gifts this Christmas, and there's something for everyone on your list, from sparkles and colourful accessories, to elegant and timeless clips.
For Long Hair
We all know someone with enviable long, thick or curly locks, but their hair can be difficult to manage! Why not give them a helping hand by gifting them an accessory which will hold their hair securely in a beautiful style? The accessories in our French handmade collection are made from durable cellulose acetate and finished with strong steel clasps to create clips which are designed to hold the hair comfortably and last for years, ideal for someone with heavy or lots of hair!
Our Large Hair Claw and Curved Hair Claws are perfect for people with lots of hair, whether it's long, curly or just very thick! There's plenty of space inside these to hold the style securely, and it comes in a range of unique colours which make for a really special gift.
Arched Barrettes are also a perfect gift for this hair type. The arched style allows extra space for the hair inside the clip and they can be used to create a range of styles including elegant French pleats, effortless low ponytails, and simple half-up styles. Our handmade arched barrettes come with either narrow, regular and wide toppers; all with the same sized clip mechanisms.
For Mid-Length Hair
People with mid-length hair, or medium thickness hair are usually easy to buy for as you just want to go for something... well... medium sized! Of course, our Medium Hair Claw is perfect for French twists and updo styles, and the Medium Rectangle Cut Out Claw is a lovely modern twist on the classic style. But, if you're after something a little different, why not give a stick barrette a try?! The Onyx and Tortoiseshell Stick Barrette will help create gorgeous updo styles by simply twisting the hair into a bun, placing the oval piece over the top, and threading the stick through the middle to secure the hair.
For another idea that's a little different, lets throw it back to the 80's with a banana hair clip! Choose from a collection including our luxury handmade Small Round Banana Clip, a classic Thick Hair Banana Clip, or even a pop of colour with a purple Long Banana Clip! Banana clips are coming back into fashion in a big way, and we think they are amazing for creating an effortless and full-looking ponytail.
For Short Hair
Having shorter hair doesn't mean you can't wear hair accessories! We have some lovely options which don't require having lots of long hair, so even people on your list with short hair can enjoy styling it.
Headbands are a great option for the people on your list with short hair, as they work perfectly on everyone, no matter their hair type. They are a stylish way to accessorise your hair, and are so simple to use but look great! Our Handmade Fabric Headbands are perfect for adding some colour to any outfit. These wide headbands come in a range of prints, from bright colours and leopard print, to classic lace and ruched satin. The wide, padded style is comfortable to wear all day, making this a lovely gift for anyone to receive!
Clips and hair slides are another lovely gift for people with short hair. For a classic look, try the 2x 7cm Snap Clips from our French handmade collection. They close tightly so work well holding small sections of any hair type without slipping and are a great way to clip back fringes, side pieces of hair, and fly-aways! Or, for a little sparkle go for some crystal hair slides such as our Swarovski Crystal Art Deco Hair Slide and the Oval Crystal Sparkle Snap Clip, perfect for holding small sections of hair, and adding a touch of Christmas glamour to their hairstyle!
For Someone Always On-The-Go
Do you know someone who never stops moving and is always busy?! They're probably in need of an easy-to-use hair accessory which is practical and can be used to throw up their hair in a ponytail or updo in a hurry.
Scrunchies are a great way to make a ponytail or bun look extra-special, whilst still being easy to use and comfortable. Our beautiful ByEloise Hair Scrunchies are handmade from the most luxurious satin and silk materials, our hair scrunchies define pure glamour. They are super comfortable and damage-free and we think they're the ideal gift for someone who does their hair in a hurry!
Our Essentials hair claws are the perfect accessories for keeping in a handbag for hair emergencies on the go! For thick hair, we think they will love the Octopus Hair Claw which can be used to secure a messy bun at the back of the head for a quick and easy hairstyle. In finer hair, a Medium Steph Hair Clawwill hold a simple twist in place all day!
For Lovers Of Sparkle!
When better than the festive season to add a bit (or a lot) of sparkle to your outfit? If you know someone who always loves a bit of glitz and sparkle, we have a stunning collection of crystal hair accessories which are sure to add a touch of glamour to their hairstyles.
For a statement piece, we think our Swarovski Crystal Crown Claws make the most beautiful and special gift for a loved one. Choose from a Small or Large size, and then just let the crystals do the talking! This claw can be used to create an elegant updo, perfect for special occasions!
This year has been difficult for most of us, so inject some joy into your gift giving this Christmas and put a smile on their face with a colourful hair accessory to brighten their day!
Our favourite colourful gifts are our vibrant charm hair elastics. Not only do they looks great in the hair, but with so many of us keeping a hair elastic around our wrist for emergencies, these hairbands are designed to look lovely when not worn in the hair too! We also now have beautiful silk scrunchies with gold heart charms for an added touch of luxury or, add a personal touch with one of our Zodiac Charm Hairbands.
New to our popular French handmade collection is our colourful hair pins. Perfect for someone who loves to create classic hairstyles but is looking to inject some colour into their look, these hair pins are perfectly smooth and kind to the hair whilst being strong and secure for all-day-wear. The 8cm Waved Chignon Pin is perfect for creating French pleats and bun hairstyles in most hair types and comes in three pretty colours, whilst our Classic French Hair Pins come in a set of two and are ideal for longer hair, medium to thick hair, and textured hair types.
For the quirky one!
If you have someone on your list who likes something a little unique and different, our crystal brooches could be exactly what they're looking for! Choose from a range of designs including animals, insects, sealife and flowers. Each one is embellished with colourful crystals and most of these brooches also have a beak clip so can be worn in the hair too.
Another great choice for someone who likes their accessories to be a bit different, and especially for dog lovers, is our French handmade Dachshund Barrette. It is a strong arched barrette clip with a tortoiseshell dachshund shaped topper and finished with Swarovski crystal eyes and a collar. It is perfect for medium and thick hair types, or lots of fine hair, and can be used to create updo styles, low ponytails and half-up hairstyles.
For The Men In Your Life
Hair accessories aren't just for the girls, we have a brother brand Mens Hair Tools where you can shop premium and everyday hair accessories for men!
Headbands are a good choice for men, especially if they like to keep their hair off their face whilst working or playing sports. The Narrow Headband comes in a range of neutral colours, including black marble, making it a great option for men. The Sports Headband from the Everyday range also comes in two neutral colours, and has two rows of teeth on the inside to help keep it in place and push the hair securely out of their face.
