Headbands are one of the most popular Hair Accessories

If you have short hair then a variety of headbands are a must. It’s an easy way to add glamour to your hairstyles for every occasion. Although you want to make a statement with your headband, huge bows or thick headbands can be too intense for short hair.

Depending on the length of your hair should determine the size of the headband you choose. If you have shorter hair such as a pixie try to keep your head bands less than 2 inches wide because wide bands can be overpowering for your short hair. If you have a bob or shag style then you can go thicker but keep still keep it simple.

Headbands also create great volume and are perfect for styling your hair if you are trying to grow it out or change the style.

Studs use to be for the ‘gothic’ style exclusively, but now they are for everyone’s look and are the perfect headband accessory.
