Here are some things to think about when choosing a headband
Look for headbands in darker colors and more sophisticated prints ( likes leopard or snakeskin).
Interesting textures can be quite sophisticated too.
Thinner, finer plastic headbands tend to look chic as they are more subtle.
Vintage headbands with a twist knot are trending and can be a playful fashion statement.
A casual headband ( typically a brighter color) usually says “preppy.” Make sure your outfit is also casual to work with this look.
Anything with a traditional bow is very tricky and in most cases are not age-appropriate
Scarves tied as headbands are an excellent way to keep your hair back and will give you a boho-chic vibe
Avoid any kind of headband that looks like something you’d see a 7-year-old wearing
I'm glad you brought this up since headbands have been so popular lately. They can certainly be a good thing to wear when transitioning from one style to another. A headband is great for accentuating bangs. It can flaunt a pixie cut, or show off longer locks quite nicely too. A headband can even become part of your signature style.
The problem with wearing a headband after 40 is you can come across looking too girly and juvenile. Up until now, there hasn’t been a wide variety of headband styles, and the majority of headbands out there were sweet and childlike. Now that's changed.
I think headbands can be fine at any age, but as a mature woman, I'd steer clear of headbands with flowers, floppy bows, and sparkly little girl styles. Think classy, less cutesy when choosing a headband. This fine resin headband is more elegant.
Hair Trends You Should Know About
What 2021 hair trends should you know about? Despite the rollercoaster of a year that 2020 was, there's no denying that it was certainly memorable. And while a lot of those memories might have been made at home, that doesn't mean there weren't any good times. Still, 2021 is on track to be much better than the previous year, and that means there are new and exciting trends to look forward to.
Sure, you might have lived in the same pair of sweatpants for a while, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun with your hair and makeup. Try a new smokey eye for that Zoom meeting, or just go for it and trim your hair for a wild and crazy Friday night!
Despite the fact that no one knows exactly what 2021 will hold, there will certainly be some hair trends you should know about in the coming year. After all, if you are stuck at home more, why not learn new styles and looks to rock once you finally get to leave the house?
If 2020 has taught us anything, it's that high-maintenance hairstyles and colors are so not worth it. Sure, you could style your hair every day, but what's the point? If you aren't naturally gifted at twisting your hair into fancy and complicated styles, then why force yourself to?
That's one reason many people will be leaning towards a more natural, easy to maintain hair color for 2021, says colorist Richy Kandasamy. "For a lot of clients, this has been a positive reset and they want to embrace their natural hair color or stay as close to their natural color as possible," they told Harper's Bazaar.
In the same vein, natural styles and trends will be all the rage as well, as noted by Oribe Principal Educator of Content and Training Kien Hoang. "I'm predicting that spring 2021 will go towards a '90s feel with more lived-in looks," they shared. So, if you don't like trying to pull off the latest hair trends, 2021 might just be your year because natural and lived-in looks will be huge.
Reasons Why You Need To Start Wearing Scrunchies Again
Scrunchies are back in a big way and I'm loving it. Not only because it takes me back to my childhood (dating myself here), but because scrunchies are really good for your hair! So let's talk scrunchies today. Some of the benefits and then I'll show you some of my favorite new scrunchies I've been wearing lately.
1. Scrunchies Are Good for Your Hair.
They won't cause breakage.
The layer of fabric around the elastic band means that your hair won’t get tangled and knotted with a scrunchie. I have used good hair ties and no matter what they always pull my hair out. The same goes for my daughter. Trying to take a hair tie out of a 2 year old’s hair is not easy and the hair ties always have hair stuck to it when I remove them. A scrunchie won't do that.
The fabric should be soft and it will glide over the strands and not pull and tug.
They won't leave kinks.
My hair ties always leave kinks in my hair. Especially because I sleep with them on. I wake up every day with a kink and a strange wave in my hair. Scrunchies won't do that.
They are so soft and gentle on your hair strands and they shouldn't leave deep kinks in your hair that are difficult to get out the next day.
2. Scrunchies are Fashionable and Stylish.
Scrunchies are a true accessory. With all the fun patterns and fabrics, you can change up your look so easily by switching them out. I love all the different patterns and textures that are available now.
They make a statement and depending on the pattern you choose can really dress up an outfit! Just like handbags and shoes they can really add to a look.
3. Scrunchies Are So Much Prettier Than A Hair Tie.
A hair tie just isn't very noticeable and blends in with your hair. Scrunchies makes a statement… AND wearing them on your wrist is like wearing a bracelet because they are so pretty!!
I don't know about you, but I am the worst about leaving a black hair band on my wrist. I'm shocked I made it down the aisle without it on my wrist!! The scrunchie will look pretty on your wrist and it won’t leave an indentation!
Your Holiday Hairstyle Deserves A Dose Of Sparkle
It's beginning to look a lot like Chr-... okay maybe not quite yet, but it’s never too soon to start planning out your holiday glam. Though the holidays hold much excitement, from the food, to the decorations, and time spent with family, the most exciting part of it all, arguably, are the outfits — not to mention the holiday hair accessories that act as the cherry on top.
If you’re thinking a few weeks ahead about what you’ll wear to the numerous holiday parties that you have pending invitations to, don’t forget to include a festive hair accessory to complete the look. Most other months in the year don’t call for sparkly berets and bedazzled headbands, but November through December is your opportunity to pull out all the stops with preppy glam holiday looks. Even if preppy is not your style, there is a holiday hair accessory to match every aesthetic — opt for a sleek bucket hat instead or even a subtle hair pin that’s nearly undetectable, but still adds a bit of shine to your look.
Below, see 10 holiday hair accessories that guarantee you’ll be the hottie at every holiday party — or just around the family dinner table.
Damage Control: 10 Hair accessories you should really stop using
We all love our hair, don't we? It's what gives us character. You might be the type of person who spends hours upon hours each week taking good care of your precious tresses with all the right conditioners and serums, so why spoil all your hard work with the wrong accessories? Indeed, there are many things we should banish from our hair routine. Some may even surprise you.
Taking care of your hair is not a simple task, of course, and using accessories will make things just a little bit easier. However, habits such as using a rough towel to rub at your hair and scalp as soon as you get out of the shower is a bad way to start with proper haircare. Reduce the damage done! Discover 10 accessories you need to banish from your life if you want to have beautiful hair!
Straw hats, in particular, should be avoided, as your hair can get caught in between the gaps in the material and you may suffer from hair loss due to this. In general, hats can make your scalp accumulate grease faster as it prevents sufficient airflow and breathability.
Clothing with embellishments such as sequins will create friction when your hair is let down and loose. This can promote the appearance of split-ends. Be careful of ornamentation such as pearls, glitter, and coarse fabrics. Your hair may cling to these.
Pay close attention to the quality of the hairpins you use. To make sure they don't end up damaging your hair, ensure that they have a plastic end cap and that they are protected by a film so they don't end up tugging and clamping on your strands. If this is the case, you should throw them away and find better ones.
Bristles made of plastic can irritate your scalp and cause unwanted static. Swap them out with ones that have bristles made of natural materials such as wild boar hair.
Clip-in extensions can weigh down your real hair and damage your scalp in the long run. They might end up pulling out your hair and leaving noticeable bald spots and gaps. If you are a fan of these extensions, be sure not to use them every day, especially if you already have thin hair!Elastic rubber or bands with small bits of metal are to be avoided. Your hair can get caught and tugged out painfully when you try to remove such bands. Constantly tying up your hair in elastic bands in styles that are too tight will also aggravate hair loss. Choose bands made of softer fabrics to limit friction.
