    1. A pack of 300 hair pins because let's be honest — you're constantly in short supply of these microcosmic necessities, particularly when you need them most.


    These babies are rust-resistant with soft tips that won't dig into your scalp.

    Promising review: "These are the best hair pins — and I danced ballet for nine years. The plastic case is durable so it's doesn't break during transport, plus the lid is snug and you won't lose it. Plus, the pins are nice and tights so the last a while and don't get loose/need to be replaced!" —TKB

    Price: $10.99

    2. Mini hair pins to give you the ballerina bun of your Swan Lake-loving dreams. Just one of these little pins can do the work of up to *20* hair pins AKA no more excessive random pins digging into your scalp.

    How does it work? Just gather your hair, pull it into a super tight bun, spin the pins into place, and BAM! You've got yourself the perfect bun.

    Promising review: "I'm a nursing student and have to wear my hair in a bun every day. I've tried all the bun makers, watched YouTube videos, and spend way too much time on getting my hair into a bun. I was able to make a pretty bun that was secure in under 30 seconds. I thought it was a fluke so I did it again, and then again. I just ordered two more packs because I know if I lose one of these, I'd have to tear the house down looking for it. I have hair to my mid back, and three of these worked perfectly for me. If I can get my hair in bun in under 30 seconds, trust me...anyone can." —Tina

    Price: $5.89 (for a pack of three)

    3. A knotted headband available in 26 gorgeous colors. Will you want to purchase every single one? Yes. Most likely. Self-restraint is so last year.

    Promising review: "This headband is literally my FAVORITE! It really is versatile and feels like really good quality. The seams are stitched well, it doesn't slip, and I'm looking forward to getting it in more colors." —Amanda

    Price: $14.95 (available in 26 colors)

    4. A hair tie ideal for anyone with a thinner mane. This coil-inspired accessory will keep your 'do in place without creating any bumps or dents in the process, plus it won't yank out any precious hairs when you finally take it off.


    Promising review: "When I first opened the package, I was immediately afraid that I had wasted my money. These hair ties are really tiny, like the size of a little kid’s hair ties. Well, the second I put one in, I realized I had spoken too soon. I have very fine hair, and a lot of it. and pretty much nothing stays put. I can make a messy bun with these, and not have to adjust my hair at all until I go to bed. They also don’t pull my hair like regular hair ties do. 5/5 stars and worth every penny. I definitely see them being a go-to now." —Katie T.

    Price: $9.99 (for a set of eight)

    5. A bow-topped hair tie because you want to be the kind of person who has mastered the fishtail, but you're currently struggling with just a regular braid. This bow is good at distracting from the flyaways and random pieces of hair you forgot to tie up.


    Promising review: "These velvet scrunchies are so cute! Love the colors and texture. They are a great size for adults and have the perfect amount of stretch. Another plus is that the bow can be removed if needed!" —Kirsten Allen

    Price: $8.49 (for a pack of six)

    6. A pearl barrette to a) keep long layers outta your eyes, and b) up your trend game by about 10000%. Folks, the middle school trend of decorative clips is BACK and I, for one, am thrilled.

    Price: $7.99 (for a set of four)

    7. Seamless Burlybands hair ties that won't stretch, break, slip, OR damage your mane. It'll even stay put through rigorous workouts! If you have super thick locks, you should immediately add this to your cart.


    Promising review: "These are the BEST THINGS EVER!! I've never had a tie that I could wrap around twice — TWICE — and it literally stays in place all day. I have three of these and never lend them to anyone for fear of not getting them back. I'll be buying more of these for sure!" —Mattie

    Price: $10.99 (for a pack of three)

    8. A bobby pin and barrette set designed in bronze hues, which is actually a lot more appealing than any gold or silver available on the market. Who says third place isn't the best place, eh?


    This pack comes with 10 hair pins and 12 barrettes!

    Promising review: "These are pretty and sturdy — they're perfect for my thin, fine hair! I do have to be careful taking them out though, since they sometimes catch my hair." —M. Edwards

    Promising review: "I bought these to wear in an updo for a wedding! They went in easily, stayed put the whole night (and I did a lot of dancing!), and they were simple and provided the perfect amount of sparkle. I would recommend these to anyone in need of a little bling!" —Ashley Willis

    Price: $13.97 (for a pack of 12)

    10. A knotted headband stolen from the the set of Gossip Girl. Pretty sure Blair Waldorf exclusively wore these headbands throughout the show.

    Price: $13.99 (for a pack of eight)

    11. A doughnut maker to give you an upscale, polished bun that even Audrey Hepburn would have been envious of. And the best part? It'll only take a few minutes to put together.

    So how does this work? Just put your hair in a ponytail, slide the donut in, and spread your hair out around the donut itself. THEN! Just tuck the excess hair INSIDE the donut, add a few pins, and BOOM! You've got yourself the perfect bun.

    Promising review: "These are the best! Seriously, these make it super easy for us moms who aren't great at getting our girls' long hair into a bun. My daughter uses these for dance, and they hold super well and are really easy to use!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $6.50 (for a small, medium, and large bun maker)

    14. Hair scrunchies you should start using ASAP, because these gently pull back your hair without pulling on strands and causing damage in the process. Plus, they're velvet. Congratulations! You're now trendy.

    Promising review: "I have to say that I just about jumped for joy when scrunchies came back in style. I have super slippery hair (straight and healthy, so nothing stays in place). I opted for velvet over satin to help combat this and it worked! They stay in well, keep their shape, and look lovely. What a fantastic value!" —honeybee fairy

    Price: $7.99 (for a pack of 10)

    15. A twist headband to turn your noggin into a present, bow and all. Throw this on to keep baby hairs out of your face AND to add some stripes or dots to your 'do.

    Promising review: "These are so cute! I thought they might be too youthful/girly for me to get away with, but they're adorable. Perfect for keeping my hair out of my face when I work and when I apply makeup and skincare treatments. There's a wire that runs throughout the whole headband which means it stays on my (large) head, whereas other elastic headbands just slip off. These are available in many different pretty prints, as well. Great value for the money!" —meems

    Price: $8.99 (for a set of four)

    16. A fancy hair pin set that can be easily added to any hairstyle, whether a messy bun or the fanciest of updos. I guess you can say this really helps you ~branch out~, eh?

    This set comes with two smaller pins and one larger one!

    Promising review: "These are so cute, I can’t stand it. The smaller two pins really hold my hair in place, while the larger branch is a gorgeous decoration. I got them in gold, but these barrettes are so fun that I’m considering getting them in every finish available. Very pretty and not at all cheap-looking, especially considering the very affordable price." —P.S. Crane

    Price: $8.99 (for a pack of three, available in four colors)

    17. A straw fedora hat to hide bad hair days and give serious "trendier than thou" vibes. Will everyone be asking where you bought this? Absolutely, so prepare to say "Amazon" at least 900 times when you wear it.

    Promising review: "Y’all! This hat is everything. Such good quality for the price. I got the white one; it’s super cute and flattering, and the brim is the perfect size to not be uncomfortable if you’re laying out on a beach chair. I want to get one in every color now! The best part is that there's a tie inside the hat to make sure it's adjusted to your head perfectly, meaning no wind will blow it off. Love! My favorite new addition to my wardrobe." —jovie

    Price: $15.99 (available in 20 colors)
