This '90s hair staple has officially made a comeback, and TBH we couldn't be happier about it. Make your ponytails, topknots and half updos more playful with the addition of a scrunchie. And we're not talking boring styles either—think prints, metallics, and fun textures to get the job done.

These are one hair accessory that will never go away and for good reason. Hair clips don't only keep pesky flyaways and strands in place, but they also come super cool designs now.

Plus, you can add them to anything from loose hairstyles to your gorgeous festival braids.

A headscarf is essentially a household item when it comes to festival-season. The boho-chic look that embodies a music festival's campgrounds is never complete without the statement of a headscarf. From bold prints to silky finishes, these can be styled in so many different ways. You can tie a cute knot in the front when wrapping them from underneath, or you can wear them the old-school way and cover the entire top half of your head. You can even get very creative and braid one into your plait as an accent. Then of course once the fun is over, you also have a fun accessory to keep and wear with your clothes or bags.
You can't go wrong with this gorgeous head wrap from DONNI. The mustard silk color is right on trend and you can wear this beauty so many ways–the styling options are endless!

Another classic hair staple that has been with us since childhood, the headband just keeps on getting better. Today, it almost seems as if headbands were made for music festivals thanks to the quirky designs available from so many brands.
