Introduction

Color blocking, all the rage on the Gucci, Jil Sander, Proenza Schouler and Prabal Grunugy Spring runways, is one of the hottest fashion trends of the moment.

Bold color blocking simply involves mashing up contrasting shades to create a major visual impact with minimal effort.

No matter how popular on the catwalks, not everyone loves wearing bold color as their main fashion statement.

Which is why hair accessory color blocking is a brilliant way to ease into the hot new fashion trend which can seem a bit daunting for the color shy.

Hair accessories allow anyone to be edgy and fashion forward by selecting big bold hair accessories hues in a scaled down way.

Color Blocking Tips

Consider these fashion suggestions for a seamless color blocking strategy:

It's all about pairing vibrant colors together. Whether you want to ease in to embrace the bold color look consider these options:

1. Mix Bold Tops With Subdued Bottoms

For an easy way to try out the mixed bright color blocking trend pair two colorful separates like a blouse and jacket on top with a neutral or subdued bottom. A good example would be a teal top with a melon or coral jacket and either black or white skirt or slacks.

The trick is to start out with something you might already have in your closet such as white or black slacks and then mash it up with a colorful top.

To step up the color blocking select a contrasting pastel jacket or similar which ties all the colors together in a beautiful bright block.

Balance the entire look with neutral shoes and accessories in beige, white, black or similar.

2. Select Item With Pre-existing Multiple Hues

Another option is to select a top, skirt, slacks or dress which already contains one of more complementary or contrasting shades. For example, you might select a top with light and dark pastel shades blended together for a bold visual look.

To avoid overdoing the color blocking effect combine the brightly colored top, skirt or dress with neutral accessories.

3. Opt For Neon Hues In A Big Way

Fashion designer Christopher Kane took color blocking to the limit with neon color combos. If you want to truly take on neon color blocking, the key is to mix lots of colors but only select one neon color. Select colors that are strong, complementary and create a nice balance.

4. Add Color Blocks With Bag, Shoes, Jewels Or Similar

If you're truly color shy, go with a monochromatic dress, but add big pops of color with your bag, shoes, jewelry or hair accessories.

5. Utilize Big Bold Color Blocks With Hair Accessories

Or you may want to dabble in the color blocking trend, but want to go really show, utilize big bold colors through your hair accessories.

A simple way to utilize color blocking would be to pull your hair up into an edgy pony and wrap the base with interlocked bright pony elastics like the classic Firm and Tight Brights from scünci.

6. Combine Big Bold Headbands With Elastics, Clips, Barrettes Or Pins

If you want to really blow out your hair accessory color blocking combine big bold headbands with a flirty pony wrapped with interlinked pony elastics.

7. Mix And Match With Similar Items

One easy way to adopt color blocking with hair accessories is to buy a few bright headbands and stack them together from your hairline to the back of your head. You can either stack them together or add space in between for an instant pop of blocked color.
