Headbands are used to hold the hair off the face, while adding a flattering decorative element to your hair and wardrobe. They are also fabulous if you are growing out a fringe.  

The trends
This season’s headbands sparkle with giant smooth or faceted stones, pearlised flowers and crystal stars and butterflies. Skinny bands in rich metallics like gold and platinum, and shell, wood, blurred animal prints or sporting feathers are very hot.

Flowers are freeform, piled-up petals in chiffon or satin, stitched and beaded on to soft bands – all in beautiful shades of peach, coral, jade and teal, with hints of almond and plum. Girlie yet glamorous, a bright blossom in your locks is a great way to jazz up a simple slip dress, or to give a look an injection of colour.

Geometric weaves, floppy satin bows and big dots add a 50s influence to the mix.

How to wear a headband

For an on-trend look, place the band at least two to four centimetres back from your hairline, but not too close to the crown. If you have a weak profile, you can elongate it by placing the band closer to the crown.
Simple, elegant and pretty.
