Most days, a little texture spray, a round brush, and a good hair dryer can cajole lackluster locks into behaving. But on those days that literally nothing can make your strands rise to the occasion, we say ditch the effort and distract, distract, distract instead. That's what hair accessories are for, after all. From the comeback of oversized claw clips to a renewed appreciation for preppy headbands, it's a good time to be a hair accessory. And if we were doling out superlatives to beauty products, they would most def win MVP. Here are 8 tortoiseshell hair accessories we're scooping up now.
