Please welcome back Amanda, who has written this guest post about some pretty hair accessories to wear this summer.

It’s safe to call hair accessories the cherry on top of the cake when it comes to your outfit. As with any other accessory item, hair accessories come in various designs, colors, themes and trends. For summer 2013, there are a lot of unique pieces available that’ll go with different hairstyles. From color barrettes to floral headbands, a good choice can make you stand out even if you go out with a sloppy pony thrown up at the last minute. Here are some pretty hair accessories to wear this summer.

Whether it’s a floral pattern or a floral shaped item, it’s in style in this summer. Floral corsages are a kind of hair accessories that can really brighten up your look in the summer months. Whether you’re heading to a beach party or just going to a casual hang out with friends, the easiest and quickest way to look dressed up is to add a nice and bright corsage to your hair.

Floral corsages are an instant way to spice up your look. You don’t really even have to style your hair up in any fancy style and can just pin it to your hair and be good to go. Styled correctly, floral corsages can be worn to both a formal occasion, like a dinner party, or a casual occasion that requires nothing more than a maxi skirt and a lace blouse.

Bows are the most adorable and fun hair accessories for the summer. This is not only because they’re shaped in a manner that is utterly charming, but also because they can be used in a variety of ways. They form part of the design of headbands which come in plain, patterned and sequined styles. You can also pull back your bangs easily with a bow hair clip.

Another fun option for keeping your hair in check and pulled back is through stain or silk bow ties. They come in a variety of colors and patterns and so you can pair them with just about any of your everyday outfits and turn your average look into a little something special. Bow ties are quite in fashion right now and not just limited to men. You can easily turn them into a style of accessory most suited to you.

Fascinators are a more formal kind of hair accessory, but perfect for attending a formal occasion such as a wedding or some sort of a masquerade party. Fascinators can be customized to your style and taste. You can even change their sizes, though the bigger a fascinator is the better.

You can also wear a fascinator that complements the color of your dress and gives it an extra special touch. Fascinators are known for adding to your look and extra level of sophistication and elegance as a distinctive as that of a queen’s.

Matching accessories with the occasion is the key to add perfection to your look. You’ll need them to add an extra twist to different hairstyles you make in the season. It’s time to say goodbye to your Russian hats and beanies and opt for the lighter side of looking stylish with these fun hair accessories.

      Thank you Sacramento! I would love to see your take on bows and flowers. I’m sure they would be unusual and very cool.

    Very pretty. Would not mind wearing them, but my hair is so thin and straight, it doesn’t stay put.

    I have tried few similar ones i found on etsy, they are really pretty but some are too heavy to stay on my hair, the smaller ones i keep wearing on daily basis they are very light and wont fall off
