Headbands have been popular since before we can remember. We wore them as kids. We wore them in high school (you can thank Blair Waldorf for that), and now they’re still cool for adults. But styling a headband so that it stays on our head, doesn’t squeeze our brains out and doesn’t look like you’re back in elementary school isn’t an easy task.
With so many different headbands, headwraps, and turbans out there, it is also hard to choose which type works best for you. And yes, this matters. Some are too tight, some make you look bald, and others can make your head look like a big messy mushroom. But since they are such a great way to accessorize your grown-up look, we found the seven best and most functional headband hairstyles and tricks for pulling them off. We even included some headbands for you to shop that will make getting this look even easier. So check all of it out in our slideshow and you’ll be wearing headbands in no time.
