The headband, the head wrap, the turban or the bandana… it’s fabulous no matter which way you spin it. My latest obsession has been finding ways to create a chic hairdo without all the extra time and fuss. Now, there are more techniques that are easier than ever to get up and go in a stylish way. Head wraps have been a topic of discussion in the fashion world for quite some time now, and they’re not going anywhere fast. When I spotted this Fashionista’s beautiful Missoni head wrap, I couldn’t help but admire the confidence and cool that just that one accessory added to her outfit. The ultra-edgy ensemble of a Brandy Melville graphic tank, wax coated jeans and black biker booties are a smart combination; the pink ombré print of the head wrap can really pop among an otherwise monotone look.
The thickness of the head wrap is key. For long, flowing locks like this Fashionista’s, a thicker headband will keep the wispies out of your face. For an updo and a more bohemian look, try a thinner headband that will give off a more flower-child vibe. They are most commonly positioned directly across the forehead, but don’t be afraid to play around with placement; setting the headband a couple inches back on your hairline will allow your hair to fall more naturally. Girls with any and all hair types can pull of this season’s hottest spring accessory.
Spotted: Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear Collection grabbed inspiration from 1980’s pop culture to create a fun, flirty and pattern clashing line. The designer sent models down the runway with “rag-tied heads” that reinforces just how cool and versatile the head wrap can be.
