Thanks to celebrities like Rihanna, Nicole Richie and shows like Gossip Girl hairware items have become quintessential in any woman’s wardrobe. Many popular design houses and independent designers have added their own unique spin on the revived accessories, making most pieces easily transitioned from day to evening. colorful bows, crystal encrusted bands, bohemian inspired wraps, and metal bands are amongst some of the current trends featured in this year’s designs. Hair accessories can transform a basic dress into a chic and stylish ensemble perfect for cocktail parties or an evening out. However, headbands can also make a formal outfit more casual and fun.
Retailers such as Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom carry a variety of headbands sure to suit conservative and flamboyant personalities alike , most of the pieces carried are moderately priced and range from $18 to $60. Urban Outfitters features a variety of trendy yet Boho style headbands fashioned from metal, silk, beads and cotton, their pieces usually cost between $15 and 30 dollars. If you’re looking for more of a unique style of headband Etsy.com features an array of independent designers from across the United States. I recently purchased three headbands from ThreeBirdNest, a designer out of San Francisco. The designer offers uniquely designed headbands posed to add character to any outfit. Not only are their designs exquisite but the craftsmanship is unparalleled.
Hairware is flattering to long and short hair alike. They can create eye-catching hairstyles for any texture of hair while incorporating each individual’s unique personalities and fashion style. Designers recommend pairing headbands based on the occasion and material. For instance if a pool party or beach day is on the agenda you might want to shy away from feathered or metal headbands to avoid damaging the pieces. Try featuring a brightly colored cloth headband that compliments your bathing suit or a color you’d like to standout in your ensemble. Regardless of the occasion, remember to have fun with your hair accessories this season; after all they are the pieces that set you aside from the fashion masses.
