Leave your broken pins and stretched out scrunchies at home. Spring 2016 was the season of some serious statement hair accessories, from the tiaras at Saint Laurent to the retro headbands at Dolce & Gabbana. Well-placed ribbons at Oscar De La Renta channeled a lady-like vibe and could have easily complemented the Victorian trend see at Alexander McQueen and Givenchy. Even the little barrettes at Marc Jacobs, paired with lived-in 1940s styles, proved that the tiniest detail can bring a whole look together. So if you want to dive hair first into this trend, opt for a hair tie with a textured accent or an embellished leather headband. This season there is no excuse to neglect your head.

Ornamental clips were one of the few consistent hair trends of New York’s SS2016 Fashion Week. Their most surprising use was in the Marc Jacobs show where they adorned messy, tumbled hair tresses designed to mimic the aftereffects of a night on the town. It’s a surprisingly appealing look, one that feels more authentic than many of the “natural” styles popularized in the last few years. I immediately wanted to steal it. (Though the clumpy eyelashes and intentional dark circles aren’t very enticing.) Which begs the question, if you go out looking like this what happens by the end of the night?

Earlier this year I called out the prim and proper top knots at the Marc Jacobs 2015 runway collection. Well Mr. Jacobs isn’t tired of the look yet…and neither am I. His new ad campaigns for the fall season stars a bevy of celebrities including Winona Ryder, Debi Mazar and Cher. But, I still think the best thing about these ads are the models, who channel styling from the runway show––including hair and makeup. They sport full on posh topknots that are an excellent change up to to loose or wavy tendrils. To see more looks from the campaign, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart

While some may think fashion and beauty are all fluff, they actually have strong ties to politics and social issues. For the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall ’15 collection badass babes stormed the runway to the beat of T. Rex’s “Children of the Revolution.” Their militant outfits of army khakis and studded boots definitely said radical, but for me it was their black studded berets and grungy, unkempt hair that made the connection to activism and revolution. Think Che Guevara, The Guardian Angels, or even Debbie Harry and Johnny Rotten. With a great focus on youth culture and spirit, Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier, the design duo behind the brand, certainly must have girl power on the mind. Check out the video below to see Luella, Style.com’s Tim Blanks, blogger Susie Bubble and others talk about their view on the collection. –– Michelle Rotbart
