You might collect handbags, crystals or royal family memorabilia. Hell, you might even still collect Pokémon cards (and that's totally cool), but the thing that team Byrdie has managed to amass a rather large collection of in the past few months? Hair accessories. We simply cannot get enough of them.

With the power to elevate a ponytail, amp up a messy bun or play up your natural hair texture, hair accessories are like the jewellery of the hair world. They're the finishing touch that can pull a whole look together (and with minimal effort).

Plus, hair accessories have come a long way since the days of butterfly clips and scrunchies. Don't believe us? Take a look at the 11 clips, bands and ties below and tell us it's not true.
