"There aren't a lot of great hair accessories available out there right now, which why I've always looked at jewellery as inspiration," says Adir Abergel, a celebrity hairstylist whose clients include Rooney Mara, Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lawrence. "Jewellery plays that role really well. When you're doing this at home, it's all about proportion and not going too big. Think about the jewellery as more of an accent."
