The last time you wore a headband may have been when you also still wore blue eyeshadow and hair chalk was a thing; but it’s time to search out your old accessories & start re-styling into your grown up wardrobe.
The headband (or alice band) has had a mature makeover, meaning you’re never too old to wear one. We know that alice bands still have the potential to make you look and feel like your mum should be dropping you off at school, so we’ve put together your comprehensive guide to how it can completely change up your whole outfit.
Spring will be here before we know it, and the trend that hit big in 2019 isn’t going anywhere. It seems like it’s here to stay and we absolutely love it. Root re-growth coming through? Day old hair in need of covering? A lack of width and volume? These are the perfect reasons to add these to your go to accessories.

The head scarf: Instagram blogger Nadia Anya perfects the look in this Summery post from Marbella. Whether you wear your hair up or down, tousled is key to avoid looking too primped and preened. Head scarves are so versatile and are great to pack for your holidays to use as a headband, bandanna or even a loose pony.
The Embellished band: This little beauty can be as subtle or a statement as you want. A mixture of thickness, colours and embellishments can determine the overall look of this style. We are in awe of this textured pony and crown-like band.
The 60’s band: Hailey Baldwin took style tips from Brigitte Bardot (or Mad Men!) and wore this strong 60’s vibe while in Milan, fresh off the Alberta Ferretti runway. Her winged liner and nude lips touched on more of this decades’ trends; whereas her voluminous hairstyle accessorized with a thick black headband that brought this vintage moment to life.
The top knot band: My go to band for that everyday casual accessory. Style with blue ripped mom jeans, an oversized shirt, slip on loafers and textured day old hair.
There are so many different ways to style up a headband, but whichever way you decide to wear it, just make sure you wear it with confidence.
