10 Pearl Hair Accessories to *Add to Cart* Next

For a classical Parisian style look, view the top 10 best pearl hair accessories to try today. From clips to bands, find the pearl hair accessory for you.

When it comes to hair trends, I'll admit that I prefer the mute and understated styles. With a penchant for Parisian-inspired, undone looks—what I dub laissez-faire hair—my preferred styles tend to be those that look effortless regardless of whether or not they are. But when it comes to the pearl hair accessories trend, an extension of pearl jewelry adorning the face and body, I find myself uncharacteristically smitten by the classic and refined gemstone. After all, pearls naturally come in different varieties that can speak to our individual aesthetics. The haphazard placement of hair pearls in loose, undone waves evokes a sense of bohemian beauty, while the strategic placement of a classic pearl bobby pin elevates your styled 'do with a touch of sophistication.

The precious gem is also the birthstone for those born in June, connected to the nurturing water sign of Cancer. But aside from being savvy with the emotional waves as well as the ocean’s, the pearl is also a precious gem with a strong connection to high society. So whether you style your pearl hair clip in a messy-pretty manner—for which you might prefer the baroque pearl, each of which is unique—or in a sophisticated and polished 'do—which the classic round pearl complements perfectly—there is a way to rock pearl hair accessories to suit every taste and hair type.

How Do You Wear Pearl Hair Clips?

A Soft, Tousled Updo or Pony

While you can add a hair tie wrapped with pearls to the base of your pony or bun, you can also clip a pearl hair barrette, pearl hair comb, or individual pearl twists to embellish the look.

A Sleek, Simple Braid

Hair pins or individual twists are the best way to add pearlescent dimension to the different layers of a simple braid. Conversely, you can always throw on a knotted headband with pearls to give your braided style a different feel.

Loose Waves or Down 'Dos with Hair Pearls

If you have a singular barrette, pull the top layer of your hair back and away from the place and secure it in the center. Or, if you prefer the look of a center part, two symmetrical pearl bobby pins can keep loose waves out of your face.

Kristin Ess The Pearl Bow Slide

My favorite way to style a black velvet bow is atop a low pony or half-ponytail. The simple black bow exudes haute couture vibes—think: fashion week in Paris—but when decked out with pearls, it's made young and fresh.
