The Badass New Hair Accessory You Need To Try

Slay your hair game


Are flower crowns and tiaras too girly for you? Then you’ve got to try hair rings.

This badass new hair accessory has been spotted everywhere — from the street to the red carpet, TV shows and even music videos (in particular, Katy Perry’s MV for her new song Rise).

As its name suggests, what hair rings essentially are, are little hoops you loop through your hair. A little punk and a little rock, these simple hair pieces, when worn, give off a warrior-esque, don’t-mess-with-me vibe.

Ariana Granda, Christina Aguilera, Shay Mitchell and Rita Ora are some of the many celebs who’ve rocked hair rings, thanks to their hair stylist Chris Appleton. Jaden Smith famously wore hair rings to a movie premier — though those rings in question were Cartier’s Love rings and cost thousands a pop.

And no, you don’t have to follow Smith’s lead. There are several accessories labels like Regal Rose and Lamoda that stock hair rings for less than $10 a pack.

You don’t have to reserve them for special occasions either. Add a few hair rings to your weekend-braid to instantly jazz them up, then go all out and try embellished variations for parties. In fact, hair rings would look really great with parting braids, another celeb-beloved hair trend.
