What I'd Wear Wednesday: Hair accessories

What I'd wear today if I could: anything to get this mop off the back of my neck! I have freakishly thick hair that I get thinned once or twice a year, and even so, it's almost unbearable in the summer.

If I were brave, I'd just cut it all off. Until I gain courage, though, I'll keep my hair up in ponytails and twists with the likes of these:



This barrette from Asos.com. With a flower like this in my hair, I'd feel like I was on vacation in Hawaii, or possibly attending a Hollywood movie premiere. (Hey, a mama can dream!)



I found this hair stick on Etsy. It's just gorgeous! I know it's too dressy for every day, but how could you pass up on something so beautiful?



A hair stick/hair slide/bun wrap/barrette like this one from Forever 21. This kind of hair harness has been called all kinds of names. Whatever you call it, this is my favorite way to put up my hair. It's especially effective if I leave my hair curly and let some curls poke out the top.

What do you do with your hair in the summer?

Those are so pretty and might be a much lovelier way to put up my hair. I just use a boring rubber band.

I love all of these, and wish I could wear them. Unfortunately, since my hair is so thin, I keep it so short, it won't even fit into a ponytail.

Great photos. I'd like to get a butterfly like that for my friend's hair.

That's the bad thing about short hair..no cute accessories. But I will say, my hair is NOT hot!

Cute! Sadly, my hair is too short (and freakishly fine) to wear clips.

Thin hair. Barrettes and clips and pins don't stay. When it was long and I braided it, my braid was about the diameter of 2 pencils side by side. I chopped it off with some light layering and now it LOOKS thicker, even if it ain't. It's also off my neck which makes me very happy!

I love the idea of flowers in my hair. I have long, thick hair too, and should have fun with it. But alas, I usually just brush it and go.
