As seen at Max Mara: Headbands are turning heads as a stylish hair accessory in 2022.
A look at catwalks around the world is always a reliable source for hairstyle trends. In recent seasons, many collections revolved around comfort and calm, which is why hair styling was often reserved and natural. Big experiments were more likely to be seen at the shows of haute couture or designers, who are already known for an experimental approach. Hair accessories were mostly non-existent, which probably led to us neglecting them in everyday styling for a long time. Until now - because thanks to Max Mara, the most beautiful suggestion for a little more styling time in the morning is coming back: headbands!
For the Spring/Summer 2022 season, Max Mara presented thin headbands on the models' heads that matched the color of the clothing. They in no way stole the show from the minimalist looks but completed them in a way that was as elegant as it was surprising. While wider headbands can quickly evoke associations with schoolgirls, this styling proved that thin headbands, as a more grown-up variant, bring a touch of discreet preppiness to any outfit.
Thin headbands work with almost any hairstyle, as Max Mara impressively proved. They all have a tiny bit of preliminary work in common: the hair should look extra well-groomed for the look that draws attention to itself. Therefore, depending on the hair structure and length, it is best to distribute a styling cream or some hair oil in the strands beforehand.
Next, you style your hair normally depending on the desired hairstyle. There are plenty of options: you can either opt for big waves or pull out the crimping iron for the lengths. Or choose the sleek version and straighten your hair with a straightening iron. What both looks have in common is that the hair should remain straight at the hairline – in the case of the big waves, it is only curled above the ears. In addition, you pull a deep side parting and fix the hair with some hairspray or gel.
The most important element comes last – the headband. The crowning glory completes the hairstyle and is chosen to match the rest of the outfit as much as possible. Simply place the headband in the middle of your head, tuck your hair behind your ear and fix loose hair if necessary. And There you go!
