Instead of pulling all your hair up in a ponytail, use a hair clip or barrettes to pin back sections of your hair off your faces. Hair clips come in a variety of shape, styles and colors.

Head Wraps

This head wrap from Jennifer Behr features a big rosette and allows you to pull your hair up into a sophisticated evening style. It comes in six fabulous colors.

Bandanas
