Headbands, barrettes, elastics — we’re kind of over all those cookie-cutter ways to adorn your mane. Time to shake things up, friends. We asked super-stylist Charley Brown
, the man behind Nicole Richie’s acclaimed doughy bun
, to get creative with our coiffs using some very unconventional accessories
. "Being subversive with your accessories creates attention and conversation," says Brown. "This subversive approach makes hair look interesting and unique and draws in others' attention to the simple details [of your style]."
Sure, these looks might be a little off-the-wall for every day, but they can provide some great inspiration for new ways to make your mane a little more magnificent
. Read on to see these dreamy ‘dos in their full glory and to get Charley’s crafty tips on how to inventively dress up your ‘do.
