After my most recent adventures in New York City, I was feeling inspired by some of the fashions I spotted down there, particularly the hair trends. Lately I’ve been leaning toward accessorizing my locks in unqiue and easy ways. In the summer time, hair can be such an annoyance and its hard to keep it looking put together. A headband is a good way to add polish, even to a messy-bun.
For hair inspiration when it comes to headbands, there is one Upper Eastside character that comes to mind — Blair Waldorf. Check out Leighton Meester playing our favourite Gossip Girl princess and her stunning selection of hair accessories.
Off the screen, these fashionable stars show that headbands of all shapes, sizes, and styles. They demonstrate how to use headbadns ranging from thick to thin on looks both formal and casual.
Pictured above showing off their stylish looking locks, left to right: Jamie King, Paris Hilton, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Dakota Fanning, Lauren Conrad, Charlize Theron, Rachel Bilson, Gwen Stefani, Elizabeth Banks, Gwyneth Paltrow, Emma Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, Nicole Richie, and Ashlee Simpson. Take a tip from these ladies and try something simple like a tie headband for at the cottage or a glitzy glam one for a wedding! The key to pulling off this look is to find a band that flatters your face/head shape; try to get a glimpse of yourself from several angles (maybe even snap a few pictures).
