Hair accessories are pretty popular these days—look around any accessories department and you’ll find a wide variety of fancy headbands, clips, barrettes and even ornate headpieces. While they may look like fun, it’s very easy to make a chic hair accessory cheesy or childish. In order to avoid a hair accessories fail, there are a few tips to keep in mind. Rule number 1? No tiaras after the age of 13 (and that’s pushing it)! See our five fave chic, totally grown up ways to wear accessories in your hair.

Two things can happen if your hair is pulled back too tightly with a headband: one, your forehead can begin to look like more of a five-head if you know what we mean! Two, you can begin to look like you Benjamin Buttoned your way to your five year old self. To wear a headband in a chic way, try this Knotted Chain Headband ($20 on nastygal.com). Sexily messy hair will keep the look from being too precious—we suggest a messy bun or wavy look—but if you want to get a little fancy for a formal event, a Carrie Bradshaw-style high bun with this pretty headband is a classy, sophisticated style.
