Move over floral crowns, the latest hair accessory to come out of Fall/Winter 2018 is incredibly pretty, impossibly easy, a whole lot of chic and can be worn in a myriad of ways – not just to a festival. Hair slides and barrettes made a big splash on the runways this season and we’re #obsessed with how versatile they are. In London, Ashley Williams sent out girls sporting crystal-encrusted barrettes spelling out words like ‘Error’ and ‘Yes’ to complement the designer’s rebellious vibes while Dolce & Gabbana didn’t shy away from a crop cut full of shimmery hair slides. Not into the sparkle? Try taking regular bobby pins and give them the Erdem treatment by sliding onto finger waves or grab some coloured pins to make a simple cross as seen at Junya Watanabe. Whichever way you rock it, hair slides add an interest to your ‘do without overwhelming your look. Pair them with loose, effortless hair or as an extra touch to an updo.
Check out our round-up of the best looks from the runway and the streets. Get ready to add some cool hair slides to your cart too.

Can you spell ‘HELL. YES’ ? The British designer made sparkly barrettes the accessory to have this season and it looks like girls everywhere agree. These barrettes are currently sold out on the Ashley Williams website and we’re praying to the shopping gods for a restock.
