This Red Carpet Trend Could Put You A-Head of Your Competition

Jewels for the hair continue to trend.

CATE BLANCHETT TURNED up in a pearl and gold hair clip at the Venice Film Festival, signaling that the trend toward jewels for the hair continues. We saw everything from feminine to ornate hair accessories on the red carpet during the 2019 awards season, and it’s a look that we see moving forward into 2020. Designers create a range of looks from simple and streamlined clips for sleek updos to fancier combs and barrettes. You can also teach your customers how to get inventive with ear climbers that can double as barrettes by securing them with a bobby pin the color of their hair.
