In everyday life or even as bridal jewelry for a wedding: Why we love the headband and how we wear it now?
Headbands find their way into our wardrobe. We can look forward to it because the hair accessory really suits everyone and effortlessly gives every outfit that certain something. By the way, it also keeps stubborn strands of hair in check.
The headband is worn with a pinch of humor. Because: It is a symbol of the joy of fashion and trying things out. True to the motto "Everything is allowed". Influencers like Leonie Hanne have already fallen for the trend.
Anyone who is not a fan of elaborate styling can now perk up their ears: Because influencers and fashion insiders casually insert the hair accessories into their open hair or complement them with a deeply tied bun.
Long styling sessions in the bathroom are therefore canceled. Particularly wide headbands are currently popular, but thin models also add fine accents and give your outfit the finishing touch.
Thanks to Prada, this model became an it-piece a few seasons ago. Mostly covered with velvet or satin, the padded headband can be played with when styling. Headband, sunglasses, and earrings are too much? On the contrary!
But the hair accessories can also be casual: The look is quite sporty with sneakers or rough boots. It gets cool with a black leather coat.
Even if we fell in love with both narrow and wide headband models, the latter variant is definitely more present on the streets at the moment. With a casual oversized blazer, for example from the men's department, the glamorous headband is styled for everyday use and also works wonderfully for shopping or brunch with friends.
Even with this variant, there is no need to save on styling. Color blocking is the keyword: Different colors are used in styling. Contrasting tones such as green and pink are combined for the wow effect.
An all-over look in a strong color like orange also guarantees a stylish appearance. If you're not quite so brave, choose clothes in neutral tones like beige or brown, then pick up the color of the headband with your blouse or bag. Looks nice and looks sophisticated.
This type of hair accessory is particularly suitable for parties and evening events. Thanks to the glittering details, you will be an eye-catcher.
The headband is often paired with clothes that also sparkle - but it also enhances every little black dress.
We have been big Lady Di fans since the Netflix series "The Crown" at the latest. That's why we particularly like to combine the headband with her famous cycling shorts, a sweatshirt, and sneakers. The variant in the style of the 90s, in which it is worn with short skirts and knee socks, is also popular.
This creates a holiday mood: headbands with sweet patterns spread a summery flair. Patterned headbands look particularly exciting in combination with knot details.
The variant with Vichy checks and knots can be worn with shorts and loafers or pastel-colored dresses. Flowered models go particularly well with delicate frilly and lace blouses.
Choose a nice headband with studs in silver. The skillful break in style succeeds by catching the rock accessory with classic pieces such as blazers or trench coats.
Narrow tires are worn in a classic way, for example with a tweed suit or with a case dress.
The most romantic of all headbands looks particularly nice with a low-slung messy bun and knitted turtleneck sweaters.
Diadem or tiara at the wedding? That was yesterday! The fashionable addition to bridal jewelry is stylish headbands. Elegant in silver and satin, opulent made of velvet, or classy with rhinestones in your hair, everything can be found when shopping for headbands to perfectly stage the bridal hairstyle for the wedding.
The hair accessories can be individually adapted to the bride's personal taste, from fashionable with a velvet headband to romantic with a flower headband. To match the dress and make-up, the occasion, and the color of the wedding, the bridal hairstyle can wonderfully underline the celebration. Let yourself be inspired for your most beautiful day!
The choice of this wedding jewelry looks clever and elegant. The padded version, for example, works wonderfully as a wedding tiara, which also holds the veil in place.
In principle, the following applies: A wide headband looks glamorous and adult, while the thin shape looks wonderfully playful and girlish. A simple headband is an ideal solution to give your bridal look that certain something without appearing overloaded. Even a headband with a bow can embody simple elegance if it is not too bulky and is kept in one color.
You don't feel like an updo and prefer to wear your head of hair open? A headband with pearls and sequins in white or cream can be beautifully combined with romantically wavy hair. Similar to a diadem, this headdress also sparkles festively - but looks very modern.
A flower headband looks particularly individual. There are two options: Either you opt for a headband with floral decorations - or you go all out and have a wreath made from fresh flowers. Even a single flower or the blossom of a rose on the hoop has a great effect.
It is also practical that the flower wreath can be used in a variety of ways after the wedding, for example as jewelry for the traditional costumes. A flower headband is also nice for bridesmaids and flower children. The latter eventually sprinkle flower petals on the way to the wedding ceremony.
The great thing about our new favorite piece: The look works for really every hair length and structure. The headband also looks cheeky and stylish with pixie cuts and short hair.
Just as the accessory goes with every hairstyle, it also goes well with all face shapes. Do you have a particularly high forehead, a broad face, or protruding ears? Stand by it! However, if you prefer to conceal these areas, it is advisable to use a narrow headband model with a neutral color.
Tip: If you have thin hair, simply put some hair powder or spray into your hair and gently tease the roots with a comb. This takes five minutes and conjures up the romantic volume in no time, which perfectly embeds the headband.
Humanity has always had a fondness for extravagant headdresses, be it to adorn themselves or to show status. At least hair bands already existed among the ancient Greeks. The predecessors of the headband were probably laurel wreaths with which the winners of a fight in antiquity were honored.
To this day, the hair accessory has experienced a few ups and downs. Just think of the tiaras and wreaths of flowers of the Middle Ages, the elaborately decorated hairbands of the flapper girls in the Roaring 20s, or the simple piece of fabric that held back women's hair during the war years.
Afterward, style icons like Grace Kelly, Jacky O, and last but not least Audrey Hepburn celebrated the noble tires in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". And hair accessories also played a significant role in films and series such as "Clueless" and "Gossip Girl" in the 2000s.
The comeback recently: Miuccia Prada is showing padded headbands in XXL format for her spring and summer 2019 collection. Covered with shimmering satin, the sweeping models look almost like crowns.
And that is no coincidence: after all, hairbands - or their predecessors - have been a status symbol since ancient times. From Caesar as ruler of the Roman Empire to Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl, who sits enthroned as Queen B on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art - the piece of jewelry gives its wearers power and a sublime position.
So no schoolgirls! Thanks to elegant materials such as velvet or pearls, the headband now looks completely adult. And yet it looks so charming and playful that it effortlessly conjures up a few years younger.
