We've all been there with a haircut or style that feels meh, even if we love it most of the time. That's where hair accessories come in, and the one we're going to talk about here is the headband. Styling your hair with a headband is so multidimensional that you can go from a sporty low ponytail to an elegantly adorned updo in a matter of seconds. For me, that is the best styling remedy ever because I hate spending too much time on my hair. So with my love of minimalism in mind, I compiled a list of some easy-breezy hairstyles that pair well with headbands no matter the occasion.
To add a little oomph to a slicked-back bun, add a knit headband to the equation, and let those flyaways do their thing because they add texture and a hint of carefree energy.
Okay, this isn't quite a headband. However, it does have the same idea in mind—switching things up without too much fuss. You can re-create this look with The Wrap Life's satin-lined Bandie or full headwrap.
Silk-Pressed Pulled Back
When a silk press or blowout is getting close to its expiration date, throw on a bandana to pull the hair back and disguise any oily roots.
Long, Loose Waves
I adore a good throwback. In this case, this Louis Vuitton look gives a modern twist on a '60s staple.
Middle Part With Texture
Want to feel like a princess in your very own romance novel? Well, a sleek look with a touch of texture to frame the face gives just that. To add some sheen to the hair without weighing it down, as you see here, add a couple of drops of Ranavat's Mighty Majesty Fortifying Hair Serum to your palms and smooth it down the length of the hair.
Buns are among the simplest ways to incorporate a headband. And we love how the gold accessory complements Amy Lawrenson's hair and eye color.
When I saw this look crafted by Gregory Russell, I stopped in my scrolling tracks. The bangs, the voluminous updo, and the bow-adorned headband make this look a stunner.
A Simple Pony
Take your simple ponytail up a notch with a thin, double headband.
Rocking short hair doesn't mean you can't play with accessories and color. We love this romantic seafoam-green addition to the curly ringlets.
Straight Hair With a Touch of Pink
No matter the season, pink is always welcome to add some color to our lives and wardrobes.
A Voluminous Bump
With a wide headband, add some volume to the front of your head with a touch of teasing and hair spray (one of my top picks is Oribe's Superfine Hair Spray) to make this a well-rounded style.
Headbands to Shop
With pearls adorning this bubblegum-pink headband, your next Elle Woods–inspired look is just an accessory away.
