The stretchy headband has been a staple accessory for some seasons now, stealing the limelight from one of the most essential accessories: the hairband. Here’s a closer look at this timeless, must-have accessory.
The hairband is an accessory we often associate with the school uniforms of yesteryear. Back in the day, this accessory was less about style and more about keeping little girls’ hair out of their face during the school day.
The elastic hairband is a simple band which is both rigid and flexible, and is usually covered in silk, cotton or velvet. The rest depends on your own style and taste. Today you can feel confident wearing the hairband without looking like you’ve just stepped out of infant school!
To do this, make sure you choose the right designs. Forget pastels and youthful prints. Opt instead for bright colours and hairbands with precious stones, jewels or even diamantes for an ultra-feminine look.
