10 Must-Have Accessories for Short HairAbby Smith
If you have short hair and can’t do much with it, accessories are always a fun and feminine option. All of these accessories work with any length, but I chose ones that I felt worked especially well with short hair — accessories that weren’t overpowering, and that added a beautiful elegance. With Christmas right around the corner, keep these accessories in mind when you’re shopping for your sisters or friends with short hair:
1. Sweet-N-Sparkly Barette With Faceted Gemstones
I love this little alligator clip. Not only is it the perfect size, but it adds so much personality. Pull your bangs back, decorate your ponytail or bun, or even do a nice asymmetrical look by sweeping one side of your hair back and adorning with this little barrette. I just love it!

2. Antique Headband
Every woman needs some antique-style accessories. This headband is perfect for women with short hair or layers because it fits so snuggly to the head, making it discrete enough not to overwhelm, but just stand-out enough to add interest and serious charm.

3. Kerchief Headwrap
If you can get past this model’s top knot, I know you’re going to love this head wrap. It would be perfect for short hair because it’s thinner than most head wraps and it’s made with a hidden wire, making it super easy to create your perfect look. Asymmetrical hairstyles paired with accessories create such a beautiful shape, and I absolutely love this sweet little chiffon wrap. If your hair is long enough to tie in a top knot, you can also rock the look the model is rocking in the pic above. If it’s not, just wear your hair down with bangs in front — so pretty!

4. Antique Comb
Etsy shop My Lavaliere has the most beautiful antique-inspired accessories. I feel like hair combs are perfect for short-haired girls because they add so much femininity to their style. I love how simple and elegant this comb is! It’s perfect for everyday and for some special holidays coming up, too.

5. Fabric Wrap
Need something a little more casual? The Etsy shop Fabric Wraps offers the best wraps and turbans. I’m seriously in love with all their fun fabrics. The shop owner’s hair is shoulder-length and she simply tucks it up in the wrap to instantly creates a gorgeous, effortless style. These are so fun and flirty!

6. Plaid Button Bobby Pins
Just because you have short hair doesn’t mean you can’t throw a few braids in it every now and then. I saw these button bobby pins from Etsy’s Love Meeksie and I knew they’d be perfect for this round up. Braid your bangs back and secure with these pins to add a touch of flair. If you aren’t a huge accessory person to begin with, why not start with these little button pins?

7. Ivory Silk Flower Hair Pins
Etsy’s Piggle and Pop sells these super gorgeous silk flower hair pins. Sweeping your bangs back and creating a seam of flowers with these pins would be so pretty. They’re a little bit more formal than the button bobby pins, but they’re a great size and neutral color. You could wear these babies day or night.

8. Glitter Gold Snap Clips
With the holidays coming up, I just couldn’t resist some gold glitter. These are snap clips so you can throw your hair in some curls and then either clip back your bangs, or add them to a half-up style. These are a great size if you have short hair, as they’re not too large or overwhelming.

9. Jeweled Deco Hair Clip
Is this not beautiful? Although the model has long hair, this is a perfect clip for you short-haired women as well. It’s on an oversized snap clip so I’m envisioning some loose curls with bangs pulled back either into a loose braid, or into some big loops. At the end of the style, you’d adorn it with this clip and hide the snap. If you think the snap clip would bug you, I’m sure you can speak with the Etsy seller about putting it on a barrette.

10. Lace Hair Band
I absolutely love this sheer lace hair band from Etsy’s Three Bird Nest. What’s great is that it’s sheer lace so it adds a feminine feel, but it’s lightweight and therefore perfect for short hair. Either throw up your ends into the elastic or wear your hair down with some loose curls.
