No tool is more imperative to the girl who sucks at doing her own hair than hair accessories. Especially during the holiday season when moseying and mingling multiplies, crystal pins, bun cuffs, velvet bows, and the like give inexperienced and lazy girls an out when it comes time to choosing a holiday hairstyle. Ahead, peruse a pool of statement-making accessorized holiday hairstyles worth copying—for simple and sparkly tastes alike.
