Because everything old is new again, scrunchies, headbands, and claws are back in style and being offered as hair accessories for grown women, and I can’t wait to hear readers’ thoughts on them. I know some people have always been Team Scrunchie; I myself have always been Team Claw (and of course, the old black Ouchless elastic I wear on my wrist pretty much every waking hour). But there are strong opinions about this! Are you going to give headbands a whirl in 2018? Are some of the more decorative options (like the goldish star claw) just not appropriate for most women over a certain age (like 16)? For those of you who have strong opinions FOR hair accessories, which stores make the best hair accessories in terms of comfort, durability, price, look, etc?
Psst: our last poll on what kind of hair accessories are appropriate for the office … in 2009!

(Pictured above, all from Free People because I happened to be browsing the site: kimono clip / scrunchie / claw / headband. And for those of you who are on Team Drugstore Elastic, do you prefer Goody Ouchless or Scünci? Has anyone tried “Amazon choice” of Munax?)
For my $ .02, I probably will give headbands a whirl again — but only with ones I already own. I’ll probably skip the scrunchies just because I don’t think my round face shape looks particularly great with a low ponytail, and I feel like that’s where scrunchies excel. I’ve always like claws for comfort and an easy half-up-do or (with a huge claw) a French twist — but those tend to be bad hair days for me so I probably don’t want to try more attention to my hair with something really decorative.
Ladies, let’s hear from you — what are your thoughts on hair accessories for grown women? What looks do you wear the most for work and play — what products are you excited about to be back in style?

Holland Rose Gold-Tone Bracelet Hybrid Smartwatch, $ 250 at Kate Spade New York
If the sleek, futuristic look of most smartwatches is not to your taste, this piece from Kate Spade New York shows that not all smartwatches have to look the same. Made with a rose gold three-link bracelet, it’s an elegant watch that not only tells time, but also your steps, sleeping habits and even offers a countdown to life’s exciting moments.
Ring, $ 199 at Motiv
Most fitness trackers are worn like a bracelet or even an arm band. This wearable is different because it is worn on your finger. Available in two colors, the ring is designed to be worn discreetly on your finger so you can perform activities as usual without getting distracted by a gadget on your arm or leg. You’ll probably forget to take it off.
