Hair chains (or, if you prefer, head chains) are definitely gaining momentum in the realm of style. Similar to body chains, the hair chains are accessories that rest on top of your head and hair. We like to describe them as a more elegant headband… without the poof. That’s right, no more hair bumping up to make a mushroom-like fixture out of your hair. The hair chain’s cousin, the body chain, has gained some exposure too. They’ve been seen on Rihanna lately and on her latest album cover–but maybe we’ll save those for next week.

For this Etsy Wednesday, we gathered 5 head chains that could change up any outfit and put a new spin on it. That’s our favorite part about accessories, they can completely change the way an outfit is perceived and worn. Check out these hair chains we love.

We’re fans of the barrette style as well, another take on the hair chain accessory trend. We truly love these pieces because they can be worn day and night, and on any age. Give one a try! These options are all relatively inexpensive, so support artists and shop via Etsy.
