Diamante Headband

Sparkle, shimmer and shine in this season’s sassiest style, the diamante headband. Winter season is all about upping the glitter and glam, so start with your accessories if you’re looking for a way to break into all things disco. We love a diamante headband worn with sleek straight hair, go for a twist style like this diamante knot headband or keep it super simple with a slicked back do and a thin diamante headband. Straighten your hair and apply a smoothing serum, sweep it all back and secure in place with a headband and some of your fave hairspray. Your inner magpie will deffo be impressed.  

Pearl Headband

If you associate the headbands with plain n’ dull styles and want to know how to wear a headband without looking basic AF, we recommend rocking a pearl style. You’ll look a lil bit boujee, but still classy with this elegant pearl headband. Add a twist (literally) with a black pearl twist headband to score some extra style points. Wear with super curly hair or a sleek low ponytail.  

Embellished Headband

Create a high end inspired look with an embellished headband, one of our ultimate ways to wear a headband. This season is all about that go big or go home feel with accessories, we’re talking big and bold statements that’ll get you noticed in an instant. We love an ultra embellished headband for dialing up the drama in your next ‘fit. Straighten your hair and curl at the end, backcombing the roots for maximum volume before sliding a headband in to complete the look. Keep it monochrome with a white pearl headband or experiment with gem headbands in fire shades of green or ruby red.

Studded Headband

Tell me about it, stud. Studded headbands are the ideal style for the gal who doesn’t do headbands. With a lil added edge, this spiky style will show ‘em that you’re not one to be messed with. We love rocking a studded headband with messy waves, style with a band tee and jeans for a laid-back look that’ll make your girl gang green eyed. Keep it simple with a stone studded headband or go for babein’ black for a killa vibe.
