Hair accessories that make bun hairstyles more interesting?

I have been wearing my hair in buns (protective styling) EVERYDAY for the past month :shock: because I'm trying to grow it out. Are there ANY accessories you guys can think of to add some ooomph to my hairstyle? Wearing it down is not an option, i need something i can add to spruce up my buns. I already wear elastic headbands. i need something different. any ideas at all would be appreciated. :happy3:

    hey :) i also like to make my buns more interesting, so i either wear a headband that has those spiky things underneath so it stays in my hair, then you can kind of push it forward a bit which looks nice on my hair but you might have to experiment...
    i also look for pretty hair clips, i don't know where you could get them in america but there are loads of nice accessory shops where you can buy them in england where i live :). or, i make my own by getting a plain hair clip and tying a ribbon or something to it. of course it depends on what kind of style you like and what suits you. but, with hair clips i like to get the front part of my hair from my side part and twist it once and clip it down and then put another pretty clip in with it. it works for me and stays put all day, but just experiment with it and see what works for you.

    hope that helps, good look on finding nice accessories!
    :D

    its so much fun collecting stuff, i just find loads of ribbon and stuff lying around the house. and plus everyone always asks me where i get my hair accesories from and i'm like "i made them" (proudly haha) and they're always very impressed.

    How about some cute little bow clips or even some of those tooth combs with beads and feathers stuck to them? They'd look adorable.
    You could even use some wrapping-ribbon, tie it in your hair and curl the ends to match your own curls :)

    You can always go to a craftstore and get lil diamonds, lil flowers or lil butterfiles things like that and use a hot glue gun to glue them on bobby pins. I did a few of them for my friends as gifts and they love them. Just be creative!!! :angel2:

    I think you could walk around with words and stick people drawn on your face and still look supercute.

    I like using scarves as headbands, or I try to spice up the style through cute earrings or something.

    I think headbands or bobby pins with things like peacock feathers and cloth flowers are CRAZY cute. Try www.urbanoutfitters.com (under accessories)They're stuff is pretty expensive, but i'd say a few cute headbands are a good investment.

    You could always try colorful scarfs/ headbands with cool prints to match outfits. :)
