Don’t rush into cutting your hair this season! The fashionistas of the world are all about accessories for your mane this year, instead of drastic cuts and dye jobs. That should make things so much easier for you! Even on your bad hair days, just plop on that bandeau headband and you’ll be making a fashion secret, despite that bang poof problem you’re having.
1. Flower Power – Everyone seems to have a favorite flower, whether it be roses, sunflowers or daisies, and this year you can let your fave show…in your hair! Flora is all the rage as a hair accessory, and some of the ones we’ve seen on the runways haven’t even been small. Nope, these flowers are over-sized, outrageous and super colorful. Match another piece of clothing with the color of your hair accessory, and if possibly, try going for a pastel color.
2. Bandeau ‘Do – The key to rocking the bandeau headband is to pair with a sleek updo. Don’t let your hair get big and wavy. That look is circa 2002, and far from the spotlight now. Also, the poof is out so don’t even try to mix the two. Opt for a shiny black headband, and minimize jewelry. Instead, let your makeup do the talking. Bright red lipstick and charcoal eye shadow makes this headband stick out.
3. Clip It Back – Elastic hair ties are really practical, but not very fashionable. That’s where the simple hair clip comes in. It secures your hair back, but in a cute, stylish way. Look for clip with fun patterns, or those in the shape of a bow. You might even try looking for the stash of clips you wore in elementary school. They’re so in right now! Also, try wearing the clip to the side for a sophisticated date night look. Let a couple strands fall in front of your face, and you’ll be carefully balancing the natural look with one that’s sleek and polish.
4. Double Time – The boldest way to make a statement with hair accessories is to combine two of the top trends. We guarantee you’ll see tons of headbands with flower pieces sewn on at a variety of stores all year long. Or if you like to be creative, you can sew your own flower piece onto a plain black or white bandeau headband. Combine this look with retro sunglasses or a chunky necklace, and you’ll have the guys and girls going gaga over you!
