Hair accessory trends may come and go, but they’ll always be a fun and easy way to add some personality to your look or elevate a classic style. While the types of accessories to choose from largely remain the same (pins, clips, headbands, wraps) it’s the detailing like materials, patterns, and even placement that really defines the best hair accessories.

On the list ahead, you’ll find a mix of expert favorites, editor-approved picks, and of-the-moment trends that have made their way from the runways of New York to the red carpets of Hollywood. Personal preference and hair type certainly come into play when selecting which accessories you’ll add to your cart, but many of these offerings can be worn whether your hair is curly or straight, fine or thick, long or short.

To discover 35 of the best hair accessories you can buy on Amazon right now, just keep scrolling.

Classic Claw Clips In Assorted Neutrals

Previously reserved for holding your hair back in the privacy of your own home, claw clips are the ‘90s trend that have made the biggest comeback. Everyone from models like Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber to actresses like Yara Shahidi has made the claw clip their number-one accessory, and this set of eight clips ensures you always have one on hand. Amazon reviewers especially love that the larger size holds thicker and longer hair types with ease, and that they come in assorted neutral colors to go with any outfit. “Finally, something that can hold my thick hair, and they don’t dig into my head or anything,” one Amazon shopper wrote.

The Original Silk Scrunchies

Elite Daily beauty editor Adeline Duff swears by these skinny silk scrunchies from Slip Silk. “They’re among some of the best hair ties I’ve tried — the silk material is so soft and gentle, they look really pretty, and when they’re fresh out of the package, they’re offer a nice, tight hold — even on my long, thick hair. That said, they do stretch out over time, but even once that happens, it’s still easy to wrap them around my bun or ponytail a few times to keep my updo secure.”

Cool Checkered Claw Clips That Feel Right On Trend

“As I’m constantly putting my hair up in claw clips, I figured I’d use it to my accessorizing advantage,” says Elite Daily editor Caroline Goldstein. “These claw clips are the perfect size for my medium-length hair, they have a nice grip to them without leaving dents, and I’m obsessed with all three checkerboard prints in the collection. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on these, from friends and strangers alike!”

Real Silk Scrunchies That Come In 3 Sizes

“I added these silk scrunchies to my cart on a whim when I was seeking gentler alternatives to traditional hair ties, and they’ve turned out to be some of my favorite daily accessories,” says Goldstein. “They’re slightly oversized for an ‘80s-chic vibe, so even if I put my hair up into a simple ponytail or bun, it feels like a considered look. $18 may seem like a lot for three scrunchies, but they wash up pretty well in the washing machine (on delicate, in a garment bag, and hung to dry), and the genuine silk material doesn’t dent my fine-ish, bleached blonde hair. Plus, I love the chic color selections.”

Mini Flower Clips For The Ultimate Springtime Look

Miranda Priestly may not find florals for spring to be groundbreaking, but in the form of hair clips, they make for a sweet addition when sprinkled throughout curls or used as an accent to a braided style. This mini set includes 10 pearl-studded flower claw clips that can be styled all at once to create a detailed hair look, or clipped in individually and off to the side à la Givenchy Fall/Winter 2023.

The Most Glam Way To Wear Snap Clips

Snap clips are a beloved ‘90s trend, and more recently, they’ve become the accessory of choice for the It girls of fashion week. These rhinestone-embellished clips can be used to hold back bangs or flyaways while adding a bit of sparkle to your look. One (or two) is all you need for a subtle approach, or you can collect several sets to create a headband-like effect as seen on the streets during Paris Fashion Week.

Stylish Satin Scrunchies That Won’t Pull Your Hair

If you’re looking for a way to upgrade your usual high ponytail or low bun, a silk or satin scrunchie is casual enough to wear while you’re out running errands, but stylish enough that it’s become a street style staple during fashion week. These Kitsch Satin Hair Scrunchies strike the perfect balance between your typical hair tie that’s so thin it’s hardly noticeable and an oversized scrunchie that makes a bolder statement. Available in several neutral colors for finishing off a monochromatic look (though the brand does offer other textures and colors), satin scrunchies serve a practical purpose, too: Silk and satin hair ties (and pillowcases) reduce frizz and breakage on all hair types.

A Set Of Hair Pins That Blend Seamlessly Into Your Hair

When you want to skip the loud hair accessories entirely and stick with a classic bun or braided updo, these U-shaped hair pins from Frenchies are a professional staple. “They are legitimately the best hair pins you will ever find,” makeup artist and beauty expert Omayma Ramzy previously told the The Zoe Report, adding, “one pin will give you a stay-all-day bun.” Each pin has a microfiber coating that prevents it from sliding out, and they’re also available in black, brown, blonde, red, and gray colors to blend in seamlessly with your hair.

Satin Hair Scarves For All Your Wrapping & Styling Needs

These satin scarves come recommended by Elite Daily beauty writer Jacquelyn Greenfield, who says: “Unless I have a braided protective style, I prefer using a satin scarf over a bonnet. The scarves in this pack are the best size for wrapping, styling, and accessorizing. And since the set comes with four, I like to use one for sleeping, another for laying and setting my edges, one in my gym bag, and another in an overnight bag, so I’m never without one when I’m away from home.”

Metallic Charms For Braids & Twists

Take a cue from celebrities like Kerry Washington and Issa Rae who accessorized braided hairstyles with a mix of rings, charms, and metallic wire wraps. If you can’t choose just one way to accessorize, this complete set comes with 230 pieces to switch up your look — from simple gold and silver cuffs to star and shell-adorned rings. These are also a favorite of Greenfield’s, who says, “When I’m in my boho and goddess braids era, I love adding these gems to my hair. This set is worth it because you have more than enough to last you for a couple of styles, so you won’t have to constantly go back to the beauty supply shop anytime you need more.”

XL Hair Ties That That Are Strong Enough To Hold Up Braided Styles

“Nothing is more tiresome than trying to fit an entire head of knotless braids into a tiny hair tie. I like to use extra-long elastics whenever I have a braided protective style, or my hair is in its natural state,” says Greenfield, who adds that “they’re thick and wide enough to ensure my braids don’t droop out of a pony and sturdy enough to keep all my type 4 curls in one place.”

Oversized Satin Scrunchies For Dressing Up Your Low Ponytail

For those who are all about ease when it comes to hair accessories, these oversized silk scrunchies are an especially flattering way to dress up the humble low ponytail. You can opt for a neutral scrunchie to pull off a monochromatic look, or try one of the sets that come with a bolder hue like yellow, pink, or teal for a fun pop of color.

Pearl Pins In Multiple Sizes

When you want to make more of a statement with your hair pins, take a cue from actress Sydney Sweeney and opt for some pearl-accented pins. This Amazon set comes with 36 gold hair pins that are topped with various-sized pearls to decorate knotted updos, side-swept waves, and locs, while also helping to anchor your style in place.

Rhinestone Pins For Accessorizing An Updo

If pearls aren’t your thing, consider copying Abbott Elementary actress Sheryl Lee Ralph’s rhinestone-studded slicked-back ponytail. This set of 40 rhinestone hair pins means you can go for an all-out glam moment like Ralph or add them more sparingly for just a touch of sparkle. “Wore these for my birthday in my braids and it was perfect,” wrote one Amazon reviewer who gave the pins five stars. “I got a lot of compliments.”

The Must-Have Hair Elastics For Creating Mini Braids

At this point, every celebrity on the festival scene has accessorized their beach waves with baby braids. You can keep it simple with two face-framing mini braids, or copy model Alessandra Ambrosio by adding multiple baby braids throughout your hair. No matter how you wear them, itty bitty elastic bands are essential for securing smaller sections of hair.

A Star Clip Accessory Perfect For Your Next Night Out

During London Fashion Week, logo hair clips were spotted among fashion show attendees as a way to dress up simpler rhinestone and pearl pins. If you’re not willing to part with several hundred dollars on a Versace statement pin, try a geometric design instead like these shooting star clips, which are less than $10 on Amazon.

Mini Hair Bows In Every Color

Adding a hair ribbon to an updo has been the go-to red carpet style for celebrities like Florence Pugh and Vanessa Hudgens. Each of the bows in this velvet hair ribbon set is pre-tied and attached to a scrunchie, making it easy to copy the trend — whether you’re going for a sleek top knot or a more casual half-up style with waves.

Pearl Embellished Clips For Every Occasion

Another way to accessorize with pearls, this set of 18 barrettes comes with a mix of tiny pearl-accented bobby pins and larger pearl-embellished snap clips for when you want to make a statement. The set’s versatility has helped to earn it more than 3,000 five-star ratings on Amazon, with many reviewers noting that they work on thinner and thicker hair textures alike. “These are absolutely beautiful and great value for the money,” one Amazon reviewer wrote, adding that the clips “hold my hair well.”

A Multi-Use Hair Wrap

The larger size and stretchy material of this hair wrap gives you more versatility when it comes to how you can wear it — an attribute that helped earn it more than 11,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. Also earning it points is the 24-color shade range, which includes neutrals like black and navy as well as an assortment of bright and pastel colors like turquoise and lavender. “It’s very soft, stretchy and versatile,” one Amazon reviewer commented, adding, “I have locs and it is long enough to completely cover long, thick hair.”

A Customizable Claw Clip

The resurgence of ‘90s and early ‘00s fashion has extended into the beauty world, too. And for hair, that means plenty of rhinestones and claw clips — both big and small. To master two trends with one clip, try this rhinestone-embellished law clip, which is customizable. Start by selecting a color for your claw clip (try the tortoiseshell for the ultimate Y2K accessory), then choose from 11 rhinestone colors to personalize your clip with your name or a fun slogan (a perfect moment for Paris Hilton’s “That’s Hot,” IMO).
