A head-grazing style doesn’t mean you should ditch your hair accessories. Cute clips and bands can even help disguise when you’re overdue for a trim.
A. Bobby pins:
They’re perfect for securing
overgrown strands. “Bobby pins in gold or with faux diamonds are
particularly beautiful. Stack them next to each other as you would stack
rings on your fingers,” says McMillan. Try Ban.do Flash Bobbi Set in
Silver Glitter/Mint, $10, shopbando.com.
“To pull hair off your face, try a
thicker ribbon band at your hairline,” suggests Rodney Cutler, founder
of Cutler Salon. Or place the band across the center of your head. Try

“If a barrette is too big or too far
in front, it becomes distracting,” says Cutler. Clip it a couple of
inches behind your temple and a few Inches above your ear. Try Goody
Luxe Desiree Bobby Slides, $6.49 for two, at Target.
