These Easy Hairstyles Were Basically Destined for Your Headband Collection

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.

Slicked Back

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.

Braided Updo

11 Easy Headband Hairstyles That Look So Chic



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.

Tousled Bun

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.

Curly Bob



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

Available in three hues—black, red, and nude—this elegant bow-adorned headband will take any look to new heights.

Whenever I see this headband, I immediately think of Amanda Gorman. Whether you're rocking braids, curls, waves, or straight hair, this investment piece will add an instant pop of color and style.

This jersey-knit headband not only complements a low bun or free-flowing locks but also protects your edges.

Cozy, but make it a faux-shearling teddy headband.

Whether you're wearing all black or an entirely monochromatic red ensemble, this metallic red headband is sure to be a conversation starter.

A sweet, dainty headband easily complements everything from a tousled updo to loose waves.

With pearls adorning this bubblegum-pink headband, your next Elle Woods–inspired look is just an accessory away.
