Most women think of headbands as something more appropriate for a 5 year old, rather than a 25 year old. Well this year headbands are making a big comeback in the grown up world. We saw dramatic headbands at the runways shows of Oscar de la Renta, Moschino, Rodarte, Dolce & Gabbana and Marc Jacobs. Fashionable celebrities like Kristen Dunst, Keira Knightley, Michelle Williams and Charlize Theron have all been spotted sporting adorably chic headbands. We’ve seen glitzy, jewel encrusted headbands as well as simple braided hippie style headbands.  The  key to mastering the headband look is making sure the headband complements your hair style and does not compete with it.

Short Hair
For shorter hair we recommend the simple and classic style headband, preferably with smaller details. Since the headband will most likely grab attention, on account of being paired with short hair, make sure it’s not too in your face.  Look for thinner headbands that fit tight enough to stay put, but loose enough so that you won’t get a head ache after hours of wearing.

Long Hair
For gals with longer hair we recommend the across the forehead, boho hippie style headband. They come in both thin and thick designs, our favorite is the thin braided cloth headband. These bands are extremely comfortable to wear and stay in place without having to fiddle with them to much throughout the day.

If you’re looking for a headband to accent a classy up-do we suggest a multi-loop headband, think of it as a layerd necklace for your hair. This type of headband gives the appearance of multiple small bands, but it’s actually just one interconnect band. Look for a multi-loop headband that has ladylike pearl accents or maybe sophisticated metallic braids, the detailing all depends on what you’re wearing and where you going.
