We love the idea of dressing up a simple summer hairstyle with a cute headband, flower, or elastic. Here are our favorite picks, inspired by the spring runways:
Messy topknot. The idea is a disheveled beehive adorned with a pretty flower like Goody's Samba Delight Salon Clip in white. Don't believe us? Check out this model (image 37) who wore the look at Chanel's spring show. Here's how to do it: Gather your hair into a high ponytail and then fold the tail at the base and pin it under.

Ballerina bun. At Bottega Veneta's spring show (above) the models wore a basic bun topped with a nylon headband in white. Make sure to place it an inch back from the hairline and to choose a band that is no more than an inch wide. Our favorite is Zitomer's Coquette Headband Grosgrain in White.

Loose braid. Braids are showing up everyone from runways to the red carpet. At Giambattista Valli the hair was tightly plaited and then tugged along the sides to loosen it up. To add some pizazz, add in a pretty hair tie like ones the one from Emi-Jay.
