Top 10 Fun and Flirty Headbands

Apr 17, 2012

Headbands are hot whether you're hippie chic, 20's retro, cute and sassy, or a trendy fashionista. Here, Elle shares their hottest designs for spring, prom, summer and beyond for whatever fashion trend strikes your fancy!

1. Retro glam and Art Deco style beaded silver flower headband. Pairs perfectly with a 1920's straight flapper style dress or a little black dress.

2. Rhinestone flower headbands sparkle plenty and look great paired with bright bold colors or classic black.

3. Spangled bows add Wow to an everyday school outfit. They also look great when you're on stage!

4. This small silver mesh bow headband adds a little dazzle to an everyday preppy styles outfit or a cute summer dress topped with a cardigan.

5. Groovy girls everywhere need a go-to headwrap and this one is soft, silky and so pretty. Wear it with your favorite long flowing skirt and puffy blouse or tank, of course, and wear it over loose flowing hair or a braid. This wrap keeps your hair neat in a convertible, at the beach or out for a stroll in the meadow.

6. This animal print hair wrap is soft, silky and thick enough to keep back even the most untamed tresses. Pair it with other animal prints, if you dare, especially  with a little black tank and a short black skirt over cheetah print tights and ballet flats.

7. Gold and bronze beaded applique headband. It packs a big punch but it's actually very light and stays put on straight or curly hair. Darker metallics shine brightly on cool autumn days and nights and pair beautifully with a preppy dark blazer over jeans or a subtly dark sparkled evening dress.

8. A dark beaded headwrap is all the rage on the red carpet and the big screen. Wear it across the forehead for an earthy look (like Paris Hilton and Mischa Barton), or up above the hairline over a tight bun. 

9. A simple double gold braided headband can be all things to almost all people. This looks terrific over a pixie cut, an updo, across the forehead, or simply up top, crowning your everyday glory. Blondes should beware of gold headbands, as they may blend into the hair and get lost.

10. A trio of thin braided metallic headbands come in gold, silver and bronze to add a metallic touch to any style. Pick one to match your mood, your outfit or your other accessories.

This is going to sound completely cliche, but the best thing is to just be yourself. You'll make friends no problem. People can tell when you're being genuine or not, and they definitely appreciate you for who you are more than if you tried to be someone else. You got this, it'll be a fun and exciting experience. :)

On a typical day I wear a pair of ripped jeans and either a hoodie or jacket, and a snapback. The opposite would probably be a dress lmao.

I also love expensive clothing. Brand names are my thing. But I always shop either during sale times or at second hand stores. Sales are my best friend, honestly. It might be frustrating to wait, but it's worth it in the end. Shop only on sale racks in big stores, and scout out smaller second hand stores that often carry brand names, never worn, but for a cheaper price.
