Are Headbands Still Hot For 2008?

  • Pin it

From time to time I ask myself what could I do/wear to make my hairlife easier. For almost 4 years I’m bidding high on headbands.

Of course I had my fringe days but soon over because I had to take care of it, straighten it almost every day, keep it in one place. Exhausting. I confess, I love the “natural” way of things and my hair is wavy to curly, not an easy one to discipline. Then again, I had my pregnancies keeping my hair in a particular mood – half year gorgeously locked and the other half in a pitiful mood making me dream I’d shorten when first laying my eyes on the scissors. The moment I get myself flirting with boy-cuts, my hair begins an amazingly functional period. And .. I go back to headbands.

Colored Headbands

So now I’m actually wearing one to exhaustion – black and red print in little squares with a tiny bow on the side. I started matching my outfit to my headband instead of the opposite!

Are you fond of headbands? And if so, what kind? With/without bow? Slim? How do you make it through the day without having bad hair?

How do I make it through the day without having bad hair? Wearing a hat or cap. Or a bit of a 50’s style scarf. Kind of draped like a turban.
Indoors I do not care that much but at this very moment I wear a simple hearband.

I found some gorgeous headbands here. They have a great selection of styles from wide to narrow as well as soft, adjustable elasticized headbands that are extremely comfortable. I’ve never seen such beautiful trims and flowers!

I confess I’m getting a bit tired of those headbands! Especially today when one of my toddlers broke one like it was nothing! Fragile little numbers, have to admit! I think I’ll soon pass to those 50s style scarfs! How many years will this trend go strong?

I hope they’re still hot in 2009 and 2010, but with most new twists on a classic, they should be more modern as reflected in the style and the fabric. We’ve gone crazy to update the classic headband. It’s an accessory, a must for a bad hair day or it can really jazz up so-so hair if worn the right way.
