We’ve all had those days when it’s feels impossible to wake up in time to get your hair perfect.  But just because you hit the snooze button one too many times doesn’t mean you have to skimp on a fun hairdo.  We’ve put together a guide to hair accessories for when you didn’t have time to wash your hair, are having a bad hair day, or are want a new look without having to go to the salon.  These hair styles are super easy and will freshen up any look. They earn the Foolproof stamp of approval because you can do them even if you’re half asleep:

Antique-Inspired Barrettes

A jewel or gold accented barrette– like the one at left ($12.95) mimics Eva Longoria’s old world glamour, plus it lends individuality and sparkle to even the most dull hairstyles.


Wearing a hat is the easiest way to amp up your look with zero effort required. For weekends especially, a fedora like this one, for $15.99,  is a great starter hat for easing into the world of stylish headgear. Perfect for when you just want to roll out of bed, you can simply fluff your ends, or throw your hair up into a ponytail.

Chain Link Headband

This chain link headband by Eugenia Kim ($54.60) channels the simplicity of a classic Chanel bag. With everyone so busy admiring your pretty headband, no one will ever  notice you didn’t style your hair today. Wear it in Mischa Barton style over the forehead, or go streamlined by pulling your hair out of your face.


Even if you’re not a true Parisienne, you can still be one at heart with a simple and comfy beret by Kashemere ($97.95).  During the cold winter months, pull the beret down over your ears, and when it gets a little warmer, go for the too cool for school look like Rachel Bilson by effortlessly letting it hang behind your hairline.
