How To Pull Off A Headband If You're Over The Age Of Sixteen

Headbands are under-appreciated. They get a lot of love when young starlets (Gossip Girls, Kristen Bell, or Mischa Barton) decide to make them hot again, but then get refiled under utilitarian when people tire of seeing all those post-mod hippie hairstyles.


When worn correctly, headbands can actually make you look younger and more polished. Not only do they subtly pull your skin taut, but they also have a youthful association that can liven up an outfit without being, well, inappropriate. And when your hair isn’t cooperating, headbands will always make it behave.  Check out SheFindsMichelle on SheZoom as she doles out expert advice on how to pull off the latest styles.


Swarovski makes sleek, simple bands that let you ease into the trend. The Swarovski Silver Shade Headband ($125) works with different styles and cuts without overpowering your face.

Jennifer Ouellette Feather Quill Headband

If you have straight hair, wear it in a low ponytail with a feathered headband ($125) for a night out. You can place the band just behind the bangs, or even pull them right back if they’re being difficult (mine often are).

Afrika Printed Cotton Spandex Headband

A wider band works well in curly or wavy hair to help control volume and annoying flyaways. The Afrika Printed Cotton Spandex Headband ($9) is a comfy find, but don’t wear it too low on your forehad or it may look more like a sweatband than a fashion-conscious decision.
