26 Best Hair Accessories for Gray Hair You’ve Got to Try!


butterfly hair clip gray hair

The best hair accessory for gray hair is the Lilla Rose Flexi clip. I love choosing one with colorful beads, as they really "pop" in grey hair. 

This is a great gray hair clip because it is so incredibly comfortable and comes in 7 sizes to fill all types of hair, from super thick hair to thin fine hair.

French braid gray hair

Oh, I just love the beautiful blue aqua color of the Hibiscus Sea hair clip in this classic gray hair French Braid.

I really like the French Braid hairstyle for growing out grey hair, because it really highlights the various shades during your transition, and is simply gorgeous!

leather hair barrette stick gray hair French twist


Love this grey hair French twist in a leather hair clip with a stick, called a Braided 8.

This genuine leather hair clip gives a classic look to this gray hair updo. The wood hair stick is detached, so you can buy it with the suggested matching hair stick, or buy it separately and choose a unique hair stick to pair with it, for your own unique style.

To learn how to do a French twist, click HERE to see my video tutorial on how to do a French twist with a Flexi hair clip, a Swerve U pin, and a Leather Braided 8 (shown above.)

Also check out my post How To Use Leather Hair Barrettes With Sticks to see my video tutorial as well as a step-by-step guide with photos on how to use these leather hair stick barrettes.

The Lilla Rose hair sticks can also be worn separately, without the leather hair clip. To see some beautiful hair stick styles, see my post HERE.

This is a very elegant style for long silver hair!


silver jewel hair pin gray hair

The Marlisa is a gorgeous jeweled hair pin that you will love. This large u shaped hair pin, also called a French pin, is so elegant, with its crystal marquis stones.

Not only does it blend beautifully in silver hair, but it also holds securely all day, which makes it a perfect hair pin for all your updo hairstyles for gray hair.

Shown above in a half up bun hairstyle. To learn how to use jeweled hair pins, see my post How to use Hair pins.

silver hair ponytail hair clip

"Jeslyn" is a stunning jeweled hair clip that comes with a detached metal pin and looks gorgeous in long silver hair.

This makes it different than the classic Lilla Rose Flexi clip, which comes with an attached pin. The great thing about the hair clips with detached pins, like this one, is that you have more options: you can use it with the suggested matching pin, or choose another pin/hair stick to create your own unique look.

This jeweled hair clip is perfect for dressing up your gray hair ponytail.

gray hair butterfly u-pins

Another beautiful hairstyle for women with gray hair is the Half Up Half Down French Twist. It is a dressier version of the Half Up Half Down hairstyle, as it adds a little French roll to your elegant gray hair updo.

Simply pull the sides back, twist, and secure with two beautiful u-shaped hair pins, like these cute butterfly ones by Lilla Rose.

Lilla Rose makes the best hair pins on the market, as they are strong, hold any gray hair updo securely, and come in so many beautiful styles with new ones coming out all the time.

fancy beaded headband

Many ladies have told me that they need a solution for growing out their hair.

Maybe you are growing out your short gray bob or maybe you are just growing out your gray hair bangs.

Headbands are great for growing out hair. You can easily put them in and get all the unruly hair that is in transition off your face and out of your eyes.

The best headbands for women are the Lilla Rose headbands because they are super-comfortable with their adjustable elastic bands. You can get the bands in two sizes and in four different colors to match your hair, including silver! Yay!

Many ladies who have never been able to get a hairband to stay on their head have found that these headbands fit perfectly!

Now, that is just for the elastic bands, which goes under your hair, and doesn't normally show. The top decorative part of the hairbands are the part that shows, and they come in many different beautiful styles and colors.

The gray hair headband shown above is called "Serena" and comes in champagne colored sequins.

silver hair clip gray hair

If you are looking for a small hair clip for bangs, or small hair clips for thin hair, then a mini hair clip from Lilla Rose would be perfect. It is the smallest size out of the seven sizes of Flexi hair clips that Lilla Rose offers.

The mini (shown on the website as XXS) hair clip is so versatile, you can do so many hairstyles with it. Not only can you pull your bangs back, or pull your sides back, but you can do a half up half down hairstyle or a gray hair bun as well.

Mini hair clips are not only great for women's fine hair, but they are also the best hair clips for fine hair toddler as well, so if your granddaughter has a birthday coming up, a mini clip would be a perfect gift.

The mini (XXS) hair clip for fine hair shown above is the "Lovely Circle," which is so incredibly beautiful with its aurora borealis beadwork that sparkles and reflects the colors of light.

short white hair bobby pins

The Lilla Rose Lux Bobby pins are the best bobby pins for gray hair, the best bobby pins for white hair, and the best bobby pins for thin hair.

They are not your usual flimsy drugstore bobbies - they are super strong and secure so they are the only bobby pins that stay in place, no matter how fine your hair.

These strong bobby pins also come in three finishes to blend perfectly with your hair color: gold, silver, and rose gold. Look how pretty the silver bobby pins shown above blend with short white hair.

So excited about this brand new no-slip, super-grip hair clip that was just released! 

If you have thinning gray hair that will not hold any traditional hair clip, then you will love the Lilla Rose Flexi Sport. It is made out of a super-grippy material that will stay in your hair and not budge, even in ponytails. The pin is reversible for looser or tighter fits, so that it will fit different hair textures and hairstyles. 

If you have fine, thin, or slippery hair, then you MUST check out the Flexi Sport.
