Get The Look: 5 Autumn / Winter 2015-2016 Hair Accessories Trends

At the beginning the Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 season I wrote about the latest makeup trends on the catwalks and today I will do the same for the hair trends on the catwalks as we're still the winter season. For each hair trend I've found similar hair accessories to help you get the look.
1. Head Bands and Alice Bands 
Head bands were a familiar sight on the A/W 15-16 catwalks. From black satin ribbon headbands at Chanel to Richard Chai's low key cotton fabric headbands. Glamorous alice bands were seen at Dolce and Gabbana from pearl to baroque, the preppy Blair Waldolf from Gossip Girl  would be proud.

Black satin ribbon headbands made a statement at Chanel and were also a big hit with celebrities, the satin ribbon headband that ties at the ends is available on ebay (£3.38 + £10.15 p&p) and Claire's have a similar black wide satin alice band on sale for £5. The cotton headbands featured on the Richard Chai show currently seem more popular and more widely available,  presumably because they're more casual and can be worn for sports and yoga. The ones below are from H and M (two pack for £2.99) and Abco Tech Amazon ( £6.99.)

Another pretty and feminine look from Dolce and Gabbana were pearl headbands.This Love Rocks pearl and gold leaf hairband from ASOS (£25) perfectly encapsulates the look while a cheaper option would be the pearl headband from My Crystal Fashion Amazon. (£3.16.)

Over at Versace were black floral crowns/ headbands. The closest match I've found is one by Nasty Gal (£17.42) the other by ASOS called the Fabric Leaf Headband which is currently on sale for £3.50. If these sell out ASOS have a near identical one called Limited edition Laser Leaf headband which is £6.

2. Floral Clips
   Continuing with the vintage style floral hair clips were seen at Dolce and Gabbana. Ali Express Love Lifestyle have a near identical hair clip ($6.64). Another option is to pin a flower broach in place with a Kirby grip, I found this broach (which also has a matching necklace) for £14.99 at KCA Vintage Gems. Also similar brooches often appear on ebay which can be pinned into the hair.

Prada went for a more modern feel, silver chunky flower clips were placed around high ponytails. These two from ASOS are incredibly similar, for those on a budget I'd go for the middle one which is actually a hair comb and is £8. While the one on the right is made from Swarovski crystals and faux pearl that was £85 but is now reduced to £35.

3. Bows
Bows were also popular on the catwalks, at Giles black fabric bows were tied at the end of plaits. I found these two bows which are similar, the middle is by Generic on Amazon (£1.91) and on the right is New Look's brown Suedette hair slide (£2.99.)
 Dolce and Gabbana went for gold and diamant√© vintage bow clips on sophisticated updos. This gold tone and rhinestone bow from Eleganti Tessori at Etsy is a similar style (£39.49) while Tegan Accessories have a range of cheaper bow hair slides studded with Swarovski crystals (£19.95)

4. Headwraps and Headscarves
Silk patterned headscarves were seen at Dolce and Gabbana and oversized headwraps with bows were seen at Delpozo, but I have focused on the tulle animal print head wrap seen at Agnes B (See Centre). On left is a chiffon brown animal print head wrap by The Glitz (£3.50) and the right is a head wrap by Johnny Loves Rosie (£5.40.)

5. Leather Hair Accessories 

Leather hair accessories are a big trend this autumn/winter. Leather hair ties were seen at Lanvin and ASOS has a limited edition bow tassel for £5 in a similar style. At Carolina Herrera metallic strip of leather Orlando Pita were wrapped around slick ponytails. While not metallic JACIMAC at Etsy has a leather ponytail hair wrap for £20.11. Over at Derek Lam leather barrettes and chopsticks kept hair in place and Barefoot Leather has one for £7.99
