Fall and winter may bring annoying static, but summer can wreak a havoc all its own on our hair — heat damage, split ends, chlorine… the list goes on. But thankfully, having some good stuff in your summer haircare arsenal can make all the difference in the world. Keep reading for some of our very favorite summer hair accessories to keep you lookin’ right all season.

2. SLIP Pure Silk 3-Pack Hair Ties, $39
Skip those hair ties that pull and break your hair and try these silky scrunchies instead! They’re great for wearing to bed or just throughout the day when the temperatures spike.
When you want your hair outta your face but you don’t want to mess with a ponytail, a cute patterned headband can save the day! This soft, knotted style is the perfect finishing touch for any summer outfit.
When you’re getting your summer hair accessories together, don’t forget a sporty hair tie! This quick-drying scrunchie is designed for running and training, so you can trust it’ll stay put while you do your thing.
5. Mason Pearson Pocket Brush, $120
Mason Pearson have been making best-in-class brushes for over a century (!), so it’s pretty safe to say that they know what they’re doing. This pocket-sized version of their bestselling boar bristle brush is small enough to stash in your bag or your suitcase (you know, when we’re able to travel without fear again).
Those beaded flower power accessories we all loved in the ’90s and early ’00s are back in a BIG way. But if you’re not quite ready to revisit those butterfly hair clips, wear these daisy beaded hair clips instead.
7. COACH Floral Bold Geo Mix Print Silk Oversized Square Scarf,
Is there anything more chic than a silk scarf? We think not. If you’ve been taking a ton of socially distanced walks lately, bring a lightweight scarf to shield your hair and scalp from the sun! This bold patterned squaref can also be worn around the neck, on a bag… you name it.
8. Lush Cosmetics Happy Happy Joy Joy Conditioner, $14.95 – $74.95
Is it just us, or is it totally possible to spend a million dollars at Lush?! Before you venture over to the bath bombs, take a look at their extra-moisturizing conditioners, like Happy Happy Joy Joy. This vegan conditioner contains rose water, orange blossom water and almond milk base to soften and orange flower absolute, rosewood and grapefruit oils for a smile-inducing scent.
9. Verb Ghost Hair Oil, $18
Trust us, this is one hair oil we’ll be ordering over and over again. This Moringa oil blend works on all hair types to keep hair smooth and hydrated *without* those dreaded greasies.
