They’re cooler than you think
You’ve worn it down, you’ve tied it up, you’ve rocked all types of hats, but have you tried the headband? We know, they’re a little strange, maybe even feel a little girly. Once you get over it you quickly realize that this versatile tool can become a staple within your hair product arsenal.

There are thin elastic bands, thick cloth style bands, plastic arches, ones with teeth, some with rubber, the list goes on. Let’s just say there are tons of style options.

For the veterans out there who have a flowing mane, not only is it a great way to keep things out of your face, you can also get pretty creative with combinations of tying it up while utilizing the headband.
