Hair Accessories Are Getting A Badass Upgrade

Hair accessories have a reputation for being twee — from the butterfly clips we loved in middle school to the satin headbands Blair Waldorf wore while ruling the steps of the Met. That's all well and good if you're rocking a pastel summer dress, but what about the gals who combine their ponytails with leather moto jackets and studded pumps? As much as we love a classic red bandana, it can only go so far.

Thankfully the tide is turning, and there's more and more majorly badass hair bling to choose from. We're tossing everything from metal rings to bondage tape into our manes. Ready to get your inner edgy chick on? Ahead, find our favorite subversive hair accessories. They're more CBGB than Breakfast at Tiffany's, and that's why we love 'em.
