  • For a flattering look when wearing your headband, push it a few inches back from your head and then pull it forward so it pushes the front section of your hair up slightly.
  • Try different brands and different styles of headbands to find the right one for you.
  • Use thin, different colored headbands to create an interesting style.
  • Headbands are great for keeping your hair out of your face and will stop you from touching your hair, which can make your hair greasy.
  • If your hair is thin/fine then give petite headbands a try.
  • A thick headband worn on your hairline will shorten an elongated face.
  • Headbands are perfect for disguising greasy roots and taming kinks.
  • If you’re trying to grow out your bangs then a headband is an excellent way to keep your hair out of your face until it gets to a decent length.
  • If you’re having trouble trying to get your headband to stay in place then mist your hair with a little bit of hairspray before putting in your headband to get it to stay put.
