One and done! Add a gold or sparkly pin, headband or barrette to your hair like Marion Cotillard and Emma Stone for a 10-SECOND holiday hairstyle
- Marion, 41, wore a gold chain in her low ponytail earlier this week
- Emma, 28, rocked a gold barrette in the back of her hair last month
- Shop festive hair accessories to copy their styles for all of your holiday parties this season
Whether you’re headed to your company’s holiday party straight from the office or simply procrastinated a little too long before getting ready for a big night out, a hair accessory is your key to looking festive in no time.
With a slew of options from brands like Chloe Isabel, Elizabeth and James, and more, barrettes, hair pins and headbands have never looked better – or been easier to find.
There are no wrong ways to wear the gold, silver and sparkly pieces, but there’s no shortage of inspiration, either.
Below, see how celebrities are wearing hair accessories and shop for one – or more! – of your own.
A winning look! For an Assassin’s Creed event in Berlin, hairstylist Adir Abergel festooned Marion Cotillard’s low ponytail with a gold chain from his forthcoming line of hair accessories
Most recently, Marion Cotillard, 41, was seen wearing festive gold streamers in her ponytail while doing press for her movie Assassin’s Creed in Berlin.
Hairstylist Adir Abergel wove a 14K liquid gold chain in the actress’ tresses to create a standout yet sophisticated look.
The chain is one of the pieces in his upcoming collaboration with cool-girl hair accessories brand Lelet NY.
Liquid gold: Wrap this Rosantica fringed hair tie ($215, net-a-porter.com) around a low ponytail for a simple but effective holiday hairstyle
’Super excited to share with everyone a little sneak peak at my new accessory line coming out in the new year!’ Adir shared on Instagram. ’I have been working on this collaboration for almost a year with the most talented collaborator @leletny. Can’t wait to show you the whole line.
’Everything is hand made in NYC with ❤️. @marioncotillard wearing my liquid Chain in 14k gold at @assassinscreedmovie Berlin photo call today. There are so many ways you can wear this piece, can’t wait to see how everyone will be wearing it.’
If you want a similar vibe while you wait to get your hands on Adir’s collection, try the Iliade fringed gold-tone hair tie from Rosantica. It comes pre-hung on a ponytail holder, making it easy enough to put in your hair without so much as a mirror.
My little pony! For the American Music Awards last week, Karlie Kloss, 24, adorned her slicked back, high ponytail with a chic black cuff
If wrapping a piece of hair around your ponytail to hide the elastic never turns out how you want it to, steal an even easier solution from Karlie Kloss, 24.
Jen Atkin, the celebrity hairstylist to the Kardashians and founder of Ouai haircare, placed a black cuff around the supermodel’s ’I Dream of Jeannie’ style high pony for the American Music Awards.
To amp up the look for a party, try a hair tie befitted with a gold cuff, like the pretty options below. Urban Outfitters also offers an affordable $12 Metal Cuff Ponytail Holder if you’re not ready to commit to the style.
In addition to Jen’s haircare line, she has also collaborated with accessories brand Chloe Isabel on a collection of hair barrettes, cuffs and baubles.
We’ve long been fans of her genius ’Bun Cuff,’ which can be worn as both a bracelet and hair jewel, but for something even simpler, look to the Smooth Crescent Barrette.
Emma Stone, 28, wore the curved clip horizontally to hold her half-up, half-down ’do at Deadline’s The Contenders last month. Copy her style for a low-key holiday gathering or create something more elaborate by wearing the clip vertically and pinning hair back to show off a statement earring for a fancier soiree.
Now that’s a contender! Barrettes make hairstyles look elegant not juvenile when done in simple shapes and pretty metals, as seen on Emma Stone, 28, here

A metallic or crystal hair pin is another easy way to take your hair from the office to the party in seconds.
We love them because you can stick one in literally any hairstyle – up, down, half-up, messy, straight, whatever.
For the Venice Film Festival in September, Alicia Vikander, 28, slipped a sparkly version in the side of her tightly wound bun, but you could just as easily toss one in a low ponytail or pin only a few strands of hair back at your temple and keep the rest of your hair down.
Shine bright: Alicia Vikander, 28, gave her basic bun an evening update for the Venice Film Festival by tucking a sparkling hair pin into it
Put a pin in it: Even a basic ponytail looks extra special when adorned with the Lelet NY Starlet Bobbi Pin ($198, leletny.com)
Solid gold! Or dress up a low chingnon or bun with a gold pin like this one from Elizabeth and James ($110, net-a-porter.com)
And the absolute easiest hair accessory of all? A headband.
Make it metallic, like Amandla Stenberg, 18, did for the Met Gala in New York City earlier this year and you’ll look like you put in serious effort, no matter how little you really did.
The Met Gala may have been in the spring, but Amandla Stenberg’s crimson outfit and metallic silver headband from Lelet NY hit just the right note for the holidays
