You know what they say....three's a trend! Charlize Theron, Busy Phillips, and Michelle Williams all donned headbands in their gorgeous strands at this year's Golden Globes. The good news? It's easy to take this look from the red carpet to the realway.
Headbands can be worn many different ways, and instantly add a touch of glamour and fun to any hairstyle. Ideas on how to wear headbands are only limited to your creativity and imagination! There are feminine, pearl accented and jewel encrusted headbands. Simple, plain and sweet headbands. You can even get a boho vibe by wearing a band accented with feathers, or wrapping a retro print scarf around your crown. The possibilities are endless.
Pretty As It Looks Headband, $10.50
One of the great things about hair accessories is that they can usually be found quite cheaply. Your local drugstore, the mall (check out places like Claire's and Hot Topic,) discount department stores, thirft stores, vintage shops, and the Internet are all great resources. Another great place to "shop"? Your mother's or grandmother's dresser! They probably have some chic, retro headscarves stashed away, and bonus...they're free!
If you're crafty, you can even make your own, unique hair piece. Take a simple headband, a hot glue gun, a bag of crystals or rhinestones (which can easily be found at any craft store), and embellish away! You can go for an all over encrusted look, or experiment with different designs. Another idea, which is perfect for little girls, is to take a simple headband and add a large silk flower.
If your hair is naturally wavy, curly, or voluminous, a headband can really amp things up. The contrast between slick hair in front and a full mane in back is very stunning. If you want to channel your inner Gossip Girl, wear your hair smooth and straight, and use a whimsical headband to to keep your locks out of your face.
You can even wear headbands with a ponytail, updo or half-updo. They are the perfect way to anchor down a poof. Have fun, experiment, and see what works best for you!
