Chanel Spring 2010
The more unstudied the hairstyles with these accessories look, the better.
Every celebrity I work with goes crazy for Emi-Jay hair accessories. My favorite are the elastics with shredded satin bows hanging off--the wide elastic doesn't dent the hair, and the bows have a cool, rock-and-roll vibe. All you have to do is sweep the hair into a clean, high ponytail to show them off.
Hairstylist Odile Gilbert has a line of stunning hair sticks in neon shades--they're standard U-shaped sticks, but with a wild, beachy vibe. They contrast well with a simple chignon. Twist the hair up, smooth the outer layer and slide in a bright pin to secure it. The little flash of color is all you need.
Chanel makes a gorgeous headband that looks like a crown of gilded wheat. I like to pair glamorous headbands with messy updos. Tease the hair at the crown, and twist it into a chignon. Sweep a few loose pieces to the side to create bangs, then place the headband right at the hairline to create a wood-nymph look.
Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston wear these all the time--they're practical and look youthful. Part your hair to one side, and secure a two-inch section of hair just off to the opposite side with two crisscrossed bobby pins. People won't notice frizz or messiness because the bobby pins are so sweet.
