One of the hottest hair trends has been all things headbands. With so many to choose from, there really is something for everyone. Sometimes when new trendy things come around I either eventually hop on board, or knowingly say to myself “no way that’s happening”. I swore that this was going to be the trend that was a hard NO. But then I saw Madewell come out with this casual one and I had to try it. Go figure.
I think part of the issue is that all the ones I’ve seen are usually pretty fancy. So many velvet ones, beaded, pearl-studded and more. And I’m just not really a fancy headband kind of gal. But if you are, don’t worry, today I’m rounding up all sorts of styles to try as well as a few tips on how to wear them!
How To Wear A Headband
With Your Hair Down
I like to part the hair down the middle and leave a few face framing pieces before adding the headband. This is definitely NOT the old school 90s way we used to do it of pushing all your hair back and then bumping the hair up. Remember those days? Simply place the headband on top of your head leaving some hair in the front!

The middle part rules this style creating a sleek, modern and sophisticated look. A low bun paired with a statement headband is a real show stopper!

With A Messy Bun
A mix of both, messy waves pulled back with a few pieces in front creates the most perfectly undone look. I also kind of love this bulky braided velvet headband. It’s not something I could ever pull off though. There’s a few designers who put these headbands on the map like Jennifer Behr ones here. This is a good dupe. And also the padded pearl ones from Lele Sadoughi ones. These are also a more affordable dupe.
