Bigger is always better when it comes to having curly hair — and the same rules apply for any hair accessories you're looking to add to your mane.

Whether you're into bows, clips, headbands, or a plethora of other trinkets you can get creative with, whatever you put in your hair should not only complement your curls, but also make a statement all on its own.

That's why when you've been blessed with textured hair, going with larger-than-life accessories, or anything else that may seem to be a bit unconventional, is always the way to go.

All of the prettiest hair accessories to adorn your curls with, ahead.

Clipped Up

Large, embellished clips will give you all the '90s nostalgia you crave, while adding a little bit of glitz to your 'fro. And the best part is that since your hair will still be doing all the talking, this particular accessory will never look over-the-top.

If you want more of a shimmery look, opt for the Kitsch x Justine Marjan Medium Rhinestone Snap Hair Clips. As for the pearly girls, Pearl Cultura's clips may be more up your alley.

Crown Your Curls

Have a necklace lying around on your dresser that you never seem to wear? Now's the time to put it to good use.

Throw your hair into a tousled updo of your choosing and use a few bobby pins to secure the necklace around the style. Finish off by leaving out a few piecey tendrils. Feel free to add some gel to your loose strands and finger coil each section for added definition — or you can just let your frizz fly.

Put a Bow on It

Having big hair is a gift, so it's only right to put a bow on it.

If you're looking for an extra twist, go for Sincerely Jules' Knotted Cheetah Print Headband. This headband is light enough to make you forget you're even wearing it, but its bold pattern and added texture gives it enough oomph to not get lost in your curls.

Much like with the necklace, if you have a pair of dangling earrings you've fallen out of love with, give them new life by making them into a hair accessory.

Simply choose two spots to place the jewels, then use a few bobby pins to secure them each in place.
