The Look: Headbands

24 Mar

I absolutely love headbands as a hair accessory for brides and even bridesmaids. No matter what style bride you are – preppy, glam, boho – there is a headband for you! You can wear them with your hair up or your down. I’ve featured three looks here: 1) The thin single or double which adds just a little something extra to a hairstyle 2) The embellished headband which is more dramatic with flowers, bows or jewels 3) The hippie style which is worn all the way around and has a definite bohemian vibe. I encouraged my bridesmaids to get creative with their accessories and one of them did an up do with a thick headband embellished with a brooch like cluster of flowers and one of them did an up do with a thin double headband and they both looked amazing.

BHLDN – Anthropologie does not disappoint with a great collection of headbands. – look at both the bridal and the regular collection if you want a fun pop of color!
Twigs & Honey – the mecca of gorgeous hair accessories – you will be blown away by the headband collection.
Etsy – Etsy is an amazing resource for headbands, do search and you’ll be looking for hours! The one featured here is from BE Something New.
Forever 21 – don’t knock it. You can get a headband for $7 that looks the same as a $100 one. Great source for bridesmaids!
Nordstrom – go into the store as well as looking online. Great variety at every price range.

    I adore headbands but annoyingly I never like them so much on myself when I try them out!

      I love them too but if I wear them for more than a couple hours I get a migrain 😦 So I can wear one out to dinner maybe then it’s off!

    I’m obsessed with headbands! I am making a few of my own as ‘options’ for my wedding day.
