Headbands range in style, color, material, and width — there is something for everyone. Whether you are always in workout wear or have your hair curled on the regular, there are so many fun options to play around with! Here are three headband styles to try this summer and the hairstyles to go with them.
Scarf Wrap Headbands: These can be worn with your hair down, woven into a braid or tied around a pony! (I found this one at Anthropologie.)
Tie the ends of the headband behind the back of your neck tightly to secure in place.
Wrap a ponytail holder around the tied scarf and your hair.
Pull the pony slightly to the side and you’re done!
Turban Headbands: Add some loose waves to your hair (see this loose waves tutorial in the first step of this post), and place your turban headband around the top of your forehead and around the back of your head over your hair! (If you’re feeling crafty, you can make your own turban headband.)
Elastic-Back Headbands: These can actually make a beautiful formal hairstyle, especially if you find one in silver or gold (I purchased this chain maille inspired headband at Anthropologie). Place the headband around the crown of your head.
Fold your hair in half with the ends pointed toward the ceiling.
Repeat and continue to fold and twist your hair up OVER the base of the headband. Keep the sides of your hair toward the center and twist your hair up tightly.
Secure with bobby pins. Be sure to add them inside and under the twist until all sections are in place.
Give one a try and find your best fit this summer! Let us know how it goes!
