The holidays are such a fun time to dress up from head to toe. Hair accessories add something special to any outfit. If you want to step up your game this season put away your basic bobby pins and try something with a little more glam. Hair accessories are an affordable and easy way to give your holiday outfits a little more sparkle. Holiday hair accessories come in all different shapes and styles and there are so many great hair accessories to choose from for the holidays.

If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to add some festive flair to your outfit this holiday season, here are some cute holiday hair accessories that can add a little something extra to your holiday looks this season.

Cute Holiday Hair Accessories


The RHinestone Headband

You can’t have the holidays without the infamous Headband. This headband makes the perfect addition to add some sparkle and cheer to any holiday outfit. Pair it with a simple black dress and it elevates it from an everyday look to something special for holiday parties. You can choose to go neutral with black, silver or gold or add some color with rainbow.

The Luxe Velvet Headband

The Kristin Ess Luxe Velvet Headband from Target is a pretty velvet headband in a neutral denim to pair with any festive outfit. It can be dressed up or down and can be worn long after the holidays are over. This knotted style in classic black is also so chic.

Hair Bows

Velvet Long Hair Bow

This Velvet Long Hair Bow is so pretty to hold your hair back in a ponytail, bun or braid for the holidays. They come in so many fun holiday colors– choose one that pairs nicely with your hair color.

Velvet Bow Hair Elastics

Velvet hair bow elastics are such an easy and fun thing to do during the holidays. Try this Two-Pack Velvet Bow Hair Elastic set from Madewell. The green and black make the perfect addition to any holiday outfit. This set has the best of both worlds with two bows, one with a clip and one with a hair elastic.

Hair Clips/Barrettes

Starburst Barrette

If you are looking for a little more glam, this Starburst Barrette Set would make a gorgeous statement piece for Christmas or New Years Eve or truly any special occasion. They are sparkly and fun. A little glam whether you have short or long hair. Wear them with your hair down or add them to a pony or low bun. For tying hair back half up, this crescent moon clip set is so pretty.

Velvet Bow Hair Clips

These cute Radiant Velvet Bow Hair Clips come in a set with a beautiful range of colors for the holiday season. Use them to clip back a small braid or piece of hair to dress up your seasonal attire. Perfect for adults and kids. This satin style from Hill House Home is really pretty too.

Velvet Long Bow Hair Clip

These Velvet Long Bow Hair Clips are great because you can personalize your barrette or clip depending on your hair thickness and what type of hairstyle you plan to use with it. There’s nothing worse than getting a clip that is too big or too small to use. These are so pretty, simple and elegant.

Velvet Bar Clips

The shades in these Velvet Bar Clips Bundle Set are gorgeous! I love the simplicity of them and how they feel special for the holidays but can also be worn throughout the winter season.


hair scarves

Hair scarves are so versatile not only because they can be used as headbands, but also as glamorous hair ties and can add a pop to an outfit worn as a neck scarf, tied to a bag or worn as a belt. The Sezane Gaston Scarf is the perfect size to tie around a ponytail or bun. Madewell also has tons of cotton bandanas that make for great hair scarves.

Hair Ties

Ruffle Silk Scrunchie

If bows and sparkles aren’t your thing, try the Ruffle Silk Series Scrunchie for a simple yet elegant addition to any holiday outfit. We love the teal or wine for the season. This scrunchie scarf style by Kristin Ess is the best of both worlds.
