Hair pulled back into a ponytail with an average hair tie: effortless and casual. Hair pulled back into a ponytail with a jumbo scrunchie or huge rhinestone clips: exciting and dynamic. Both are great, but when you can, why not go the extra mile?
Ever since hair accessories like headbands, claw clips, scrunchies, and other statement clips made their triumphant return a few years ago, the latest hair-accessory trends have been breathing new life into our tried-and-true styles — and luckily, that isn't slowing down in 2022.

"They are looking for these small yet impactful ways to express their creativity."
