Shopping For Headbands, The New Must Have Accessory

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been a fan of headbands. There’s something timelessly elegant about what such a small hairpiece can do for your look. As an accessory, it completes your outfit. As a separate entity, it can define who you are and what your mood is. Jennifer Behr has an excellent selection of headbands to choose from. If you’ve ever seen an episode of Gossip Girl, you may already know that Blair Waldorf’s headbands come from her designs. However, these headbands come at a hefty price ($$-$$$), but they are indeed gorgeous.

My favorite place to look at headbands is Nordstrom. Nordstrom has some great headbands that are often on sale; not only that, but they’re comfortable and every single one of them have a specific style about them that makes them beautiful to simply stare at.
For the holidays try the new Holiday Jewels Collection from Goody, from rhinestone encrusted to sexy satin, these headbands will make you look fabulous, flirty and hip. Adding a great headband will automatically update that little black dress.

If you’re on a budget, Forever21 also has a decent selection of headbands that you can take a look at. They will typically have a variety of headbands ranging from normal solids to peacock-designed and feathered pieces.
I’ve also bought a couple of headbands from Etsy, an online store where sellers will make things handmade and sell them at their own price. Etsy is a great way to shop if you’re a fan of handmade items, or if you just want to be able to browse through things and buy things to your own liking and budget. Headband prices range, but you have a wider variety to choose from.

If you’re into something simple that you can just use to push your hair back with, I would suggest just taking a look at your normal clothing stores. The Gap has a selection of headbands that are fairly simple including plaids and solid colors that will go with most every outfit. J Crew also has a few girls’ headbands for relatively cheap prices.
I’ve found a number of headbands at all these places and more; the best headband should not only be just fashionable, but comfortable to wear and not too tight. My best advice? Keep your eyes open. You never know what you may find at the places where you least expect.
