These are the 7 hair accessories selling out during lockdown

It’s now week nine, and we can reveal that the answer is ‘not very long at all’. In fact, our hair seems to be getting greasier than ever right now, an isolation side-effect we’re putting down to all our incessant fiddling with it during these relentless Zoom calls.

But we’ve got some good news; the age-old greasy hair problem isn’t as black and white as it was BL (Before Lockdown).

While endless video conference calls may be beginning to grate, they are – for many of us – the bulk of the human contact we’re getting right now. But with their front-on, two-dimensional nature, we see little justification for getting up an hour earlier for a panic hair wash like we would just a couple of months ago. Instead, we’re looking to the art of *distraction*.

We hadn’t planned on using this time to experiment, but it seems lockdown has actually offered us the perfect opportunity to test just how long our hair can go without even a sniff of shampoo.

We are, of course, talking about hair accessories.

Headbands, clips, grips, slides, scrunchies (worn to the side in pigtails, of course, if you want them to be visible and therefore sufficiently distracting), there’s a whole world of opportunities to zhuzh up your tired – possibly root-ridden – hair.

It seems we’re not the only ones to be looking to these affordable, impactful little details for a bit of an aesthetic boost right now, with Selfridges revealing exclusively to GLAMOUR UK that hair accessories seem to be at the top of their shoppers’ radar.

“Hair accessories are a small luxury that have the added benefit of making you feel Zoom-ready with ease,” explained Poppy Lomax, Selfridges Buying Manager.

“They always offer a great way to feel instantly pulled together as well being a feel-good conversation starter both in the new normal work and social environments.”
