It’s a fact: the headbands of today are not the hair accessories of your youth. We’re talking wayyy less plastic, pointy pieces (were those even necessary?) and MUCH more metallic beading, glam accents, and blingy sparkles (totally necessary we think). So when we saw the new collection of Mix No. 6 headbands, we kind of freaked out. We grabbed some of our very favorite styles, rushed to the mirror, and started to experiment with some new looks. The ones we loved the most are as follows:
You know and we know that white has been a big trend that’s carried through spring and summer. You’ve got the white shoes—but what about the white headband? If you’re in need of a late-summer wardrobe addition, look no further than this gorgeous silvery piece. The felt backing guarantees it’ll rest comfortably on your forehead while tucked into a low bun, and won’t slip when worn with your hair half-up. Grecian goddess status = achieved!
Okay, so if you’re a little unsure of the headband trend, but desperately want to join in, this little piece might be your best bet. It’s pretty simple with pewter-colored beading, but the braided pattern makes it very eye-catching. Try rolling your hair and tucking it back into the stretchy black elastic, or wear it down with loose waves. Either way, this headband is the perfect starter accessory for you!
What’s dark, chic, and glam ALL over? This sequined headband, of course! We love it to dress up casual looks like a chambray shirt or basic tee, but can you imagine this with an LBD and those black pumps at your next big event? The golden sequins reflect beautifully against the pearly-white beading—and those rhinestone gems add the perfect finishing touch. Low bun, high pony, loose curls—try it with everything and pick what works best for you!
Having a new accessory in your toolbox is such great fun. But a fashionable word of caution, Shoe Lover: if you’re wearing a headband, apply the “more is less” theory, and limit your jewels to a great pair of earrings, a simple bracelet, or a thin necklace. You definitely don’t want anything distracting from your newly dressed-up tresses!
