Hair accessories in just about every form may be back in a big way, but there's one item which stands head (sorry) and shoulders above the rest: The headband.
Now, as someone who has not abandoned the headband train since the days of Blair Waldorf, allow me to welcome you. You're making the right decision in adding this accessory into your wardrobe rotation. It has the power to make your jeans and tee look more polished, the zip to add zest to your summer dress collection and just the right amount of detail to say, "Fashion, but make it approachable."
Presumably you already know that you can just dash out to your local superstore or drugstore chain of choice and find any basic headband you might need. No, you're here because you're ready to take your relationship with the hair band to the next level. I got you. With designers like Prada and Simone Rocha dipping their toes into the field, and mainstays like Lele Sadoughi and Jennifer Behr pumping out trend-forward pieces, there are plenty of very good headbands on the market which are anything but plain.
