Feathers and gems, shells and chains, scarves and head wraps… the biggest trend in hair has to be what’s in it, not necessarily how it’s styled. By far the biggest trend is feathers of all colors, shapes and sizes. Weave them into your hair or clip in a set for the day, these Native Americana-inspired accessories add a stunning amount of texture to any hair-do. Also big is hair jewelry, whether it be strands of pearls or a multi-media mix of chains and stones. Finally, on a more classic note, scarves have migrated from neckline to hairline for the summer. What are they wearing, you ask? Look past the clothing, past the jewelry and shoes, to discover that it’s all about the hair accessory.
