I definitely consider headbands to be an everyday fashion staple, especially for a girl on the go. When I wake up in the morning, I often have to be out the door in less than thirty minutes for class or a meeting. I don’t always have time to achieve the perfect blowout or to curl my whole head. Over the years, I’ve turned to headbands as a quick way to create a polished hairstyle without all the fuss.
In addition to a time-saver, I also use headbands as an excuse to channel my inner Blair Waldorf. As anyone who has ever watched Gossip Girl knows, headbands are a great way to accessorize, show off your personal style, and add some flair to an outfit. There are also about a million different ways to wear them (see here, here, and here for just three examples, courtesy of Queen B herself).
The best part is, with headbands, you can truly choose your own price range. The headband I’m wearing in the above pictures can be found online at Francesca’s for only $14. Below I’ve included links to my current Nordstrom headband obsessions, ranging from $20 to upwards of $100. Plus, Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns on all orders!
Without further ado, here are eleven of my favorite headband picks – from beaded to bows to wraps.
