As hair editors, the only thing we love better than a flawless hairstyle is a killer accessory. From headbands and hair wraps to banana clips and barrettes, there isn’t a hair accessory we don’t love. Unfortunately, some of the hair accessories we love don’t quite love us back and many of them end up tangled in the curls we spent hours painstakingly styling. So we set out in search of hair accessories that offered all of the style we love and none of the hair-ripping knots.

We’ve rounded up five accessories guaranteed to beautifully complement your curls without a tangle in sight.

Scarves aren’t just for wrapping up your hair at night—they also make an marvelous hair accessory. Keep your style simple by using your scarf as a headband or tying it around the base of your ponytail. If you want to tuck your strands away, there are an endless amount of stylish ways to wrap your hair up in a scarf.

Ribbons are great to keep around the house. You can make arts and crafts with them, wrap a present, or create a gorgeous snag-free hair accessory. The best thing about ribbons is that they’re versatile. Wrap them around your hair for a headband, fasten your ponytail with a neatly tied bow, or weave your favorite ribbon woven into your braids.

A beret is a timeless accessory that not only pulls your look together, but also looks great with curls. While many curly girls avoid hats, berets are perfect because they sit on top of your hair as opposed to being pulled down over it. This means you’re way less likely to experience hat hair when you remove it. Although, why would you ever take off an accessory that looks this good?

Silk Lined Beanie

Hat hair is a look everyone wants to avoid, but it’s one that’s particularly disastrous for ladies with curly hair. For many curly girls taking off their hat results in one of two looks: a dreaded dent that seems to never go away or a frizzy mess created by the hat roughing up their hair. Luckily, someone came up with the ingenious idea to combine one of our favorite hair hacks, silk pillow cases, with a comfy beanie. These beanies come lined with the same silk satin that you sleep on every night, ensuring your hair remains flawless no matter how long you wear it.

Everyone’s favorite ‘80s hair accessory is back! Scrunchies burst back on the scene early last year and it looks like they’re here to stay. Unlike regular hair elastics with metal and plastic pieces that get tangled in your locks, the scrunchie elastic is wrapped in fabric to protect your hair from getting caught. Newer scrunchies are made from stylish fabrics like velvet and satin, so have fun dressing your scrunchie up and down.

Embellished Bobby Pins

Bobby pins are a staple in every woman’s hair care arsenal, but they’re particularly important for ladies with curly hair. Whether pinning up a chignon or discreetly pinning down flyaways, no curly girl can go without them. While bobby pins used to be all about functionality, they’ve been given a bejeweled update that makes them just as beautiful as they are useful. Pop a bedazzled bobby pin in your bun for a cute and subtle accent or use several to create a statement accessory.
