1.ASOS Fruit Scarf Hair Band
Whether you're wearing your hair up or down, a scarf headband is a convenient way to add both flair and polish to your look. This fruit print is totally giving us some Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 vibes, while the shape is distinctly Spring 2013.
2.American Apparel Vintage Graphic Roses Scarf
$24.00, American Apparel
A square style is a trickier approach to a headscarf that still perplexes us, thankfully there are plenty of video tutorials that show you exactly how to fold and tie. Try this vintage style and reference this retro-inspired lesson.
3.Marilyn Teasing Brush
Since our hair is virtually always up during the summertime, teasing our crown is a perfect way to add some volume to an updo (à la Marilyn Monroe, of course). This brush makes backcombing a breeze and thin enough to carry on-the-go.
4.Mia Ez-Tease Set of 3
We'll be the first to admit that finding the time and energy to tease the old-fashioned way is tough during the heat of summer. Let this creation be your quick-fix for the teased look.
5.DCNL Gold And Pearl Side Combs
$4.99, Sally Beauty
In a sea of undone hair, refine your look using a classic sidecomb, which works with all types of hair. Don't believe us? See for yourself.
6.American Apparel Medium Leather Headband
American Apparel Medium Leather Headband
$12, American Apparel
One of our biggest qualms about summer is that it makes wearing leather rather difficult. With this headband you can incorporate it, stay cool, and keep your hair pulled back.
7.Goody Simple Styles Spin Hair Pin
If you're like us, your hair is virtually always up during summer. This little device allows you to create a perfect bun with ease. All you have to do is twirl your hair up and spin for a perfect undone bun.
8.Urban Outfitters Jersey Turban
$19, Urban Outfitters
If you're one for statement-making, this leopard print turban is an easy way to turn heads while keeping unruly hair at bay.
9.Goody Simple Styles Modern Updo Pin
We have to be totally forthright and say that this tool intimidated us at first, and then we found this video tutorial and realized all we need is an extra pair of hands (a.k.a our BFF) and this pin for the perfect french twist.
10.ASOS Rose Hair Bun Holder
The summertime provides quintessential bun weather, but sometimes we tire of the same old topknot. With this bun holder, you can adorn your look in an instant.
11.Forever 21 Gingham Bow Hair Elastic
$1.80, Forever 21
We've already filled you in on how gingham-obsessed we are this season, so naturally this is going to be our go-to for a retro Americana ponytail.
12.Urban Outfitters Floral Headwrap
$4.99 (was $14.00), Urban Oufitters
You don't need to be a music festival junkie to wear flowers in your hair, and this headwrap is the perfect way to embrace the blossoming trend while hiding your frizz.
