As a top model, the gorgeous Cynthia Bailey knows how to rock any type of hair accessory—no matter its shape or size. “It’s not always about the size or vibrancy of a hair accessory…a little subtlety goes a long way,” offers Cynthia’s hair stylist Nataki Minix.

According to Minix, it’s important that you know which hairstyle works with each accessory—something Cynthia knows all about! “A curly look is better so you can camouflage the headband and place the focus on the band’s accent piece,” explains Minix, regarding accessories that are secured using a band.

When choosing an accessory, watching how the piece will rest on your crown will give you an idea of where to part your tresses, tells Cynthia’s hairstylist. With an accessory that has a center jewel that is placed on top of the crown, “you need to have a center part [for] emphasis,” explains Minix. For an undone updo, Minix says you can opt for wearing the look alone, but that an accessory would “bring a glamourous vibe and add a fun element to the hair.”
