Get the Look: 5 Spring/Summer 2016 Hair Accessories Trends

1.) Fruit Hair Crowns

While flower accessories are often associated with spring and summer, summer fruits are rarely used, leave it to Dolce and Gabanna to ring the changes. They had models wearing brightly coloured fruit hair crowns. I found two similar designs, one shares the same slimmer shape but one features lemons as well as oranges and is greener in appearance made by Dolce Couture on Etsy (£52.71p) The other is darker in colour because it features cherries, and is made by Elvie Jewelry Dreams on Etsy (£38.76p.) If you're handy with a glue gun then there's also a D.I Y post on Modcloth's blog here. 

Much bigger fruit crowns were also spotted - their influence could be African with women carrying food on their heads or classical Greek depicting women with fruit to symbolise fertility and health. I found a really good match on Etsy by  Jezebel's Fascinations for £23.17. The other is slimmer and features lemons is also from Etsy at Makliha's shop  priced at £93.02.

From the dark and dramatic to more traditional pastel shades, flowers were worn by many models on the catwalk. Marchesa went for big and theatrical with an oversized floral fascinator that wouldn't be out of place at Ascot or The Grand National. A close match by MetamorphDK on Etsy retains the gothic drama although much more wearable is this black rose hair crown by Maha Maha  Creations on Etsy for a bargain at  £7.44.

Flowers were also on the Diana Von Furstenberg catwalks, some were bright and some were in pastel shades. This beautiful floral hair comb by Asos (£8) fits the bill - did I mention how pretty it is?  Also this trio of small pastel flowers from Claire's Accessories (£5) are also very similar.

 3. Metallic and Diamante Hair Clips

At Marc Jacobs hair clips ranged from diamante ellipses to  a straight bar. Very similar diamante clips can be found at New Look , £3.99 for 4 clips. The nearest diamante bar clip I could find was the one by Scunci at Boots for £6.99.

Over at Rodarte these antique golden-bronze floral clips were worn by all their models. Love Rocks have a 2 pack comb set one of which looks very similar though a little lighter in colour, they can be found on ASOS for £22 (sounds expensive but works out as £11 each.) Another clip I found is handcrafted in leather by Aussie Tropical Design on Etsy and is £13.18.

4. Head bands and Hair Bands

Hair bands dominated the AW 15-16 shows and continue their popularity in the spring and summer shows. Chanel went for metallic silver hair bands, notably a twisted version, I've found a really similar one on Etsy by Tatishotties (£50.39) as well as a diamente version from Claire's (£10). Moncler Game Rouge had various white floral headbands that looked fresh, clean and summery ,this white chiffon one from Tily's (£5.18) is a close match. Asos has a limited edition soft lace headband for (£10.)

5 Tiaras

New for the S/S 2016 season were tiaras, cause every girl deserves to be treated like a princess- at least for a few hours anyway! At Saint Laurent they were very traditional looking and I've managed to find really close matches to the tiaras on the catwalk and they're all under £13! The one on the left- the mini pearl and crystal heart tiara is by Jon Richard and is currently on sale for £12 at Debenhams.  The diamante Ellipse Tiara in the centre picture is very similar to the one found in Martyn's Store and is £12.  The final tiara on the right is more unusual but New Look do a great copy for £12.99.
