A headband may be known as a hair cop-out or a for-kids-only style, but it can actually be a beautiful thing. A sparkly one can dress up any outfit and easily hides greasy hair. There are many ways to get a fresh new look with a boring old headband. Embrace the look with these 15 totally pretty ways to wear a headband:
1. Dressing It Up
Let your hair lay natural or give it loose waves and place a headband over all of it, including the bangs. Find out more at Inspiring Pretty.
2. Hiding Headband
Place a headband on top of your hair and roll your hair up and over it into a bun. Get the tutorial at McLaughlin Designs.

Pull back your hair into a messy bun and place a knotted headband in front. Definitely have fun with some bold makeup. Available at HLDN, $50.
