Headband Extravaganza

Okay girls, I’m up to eight inches of new growth. It’s sweltering in NYC today, which leaves me with only a few choices: A.) Attempt a wash & go, which looks dumb ’cause the relaxed portion on the bottom won’t curl. B.) Try to rock a blowout, which is a #fail the second I walk out the door. Or C.) throw on a hippie headband, red lipstick, and call it a goddamn day. Guess which one I picked?

 

Yes? Got it at a Tibetan store around the corner from my house. Still smells like incense. Very "Anita Pallenberg attending a hash-hazy soiree at Talitha Getty's Moroccan villa circa 1969."

 

The boho headband/bandana moment was THE THING a couple years ago, and now it’s come roaring back into style. As a result of the gypsy chic, rich hippie starlets who made it so sexy back then (I mean, if it ain’t broke…). So inspired by these ladies:

 

Nicole Richie, all sparkly and stuff

 

Chanel Iman, #tuff

 

It’s just such a quick, easy way to look “done”….or strategically undone! So pretty with an updo, a topknot, loose waves, on the beach — a headband basically glamifies any ‘do, for any occasion. Que versatile! Here are a few of my favorites right now:

 

Retro Printed Headband, Forever 21 ($3.99)

Triumphant Headband in Coral, anthropologie.com ($28)

Missoni Zig Zag Headband, shopbop.com ($88)

    Cute! I rock headbands on a regular basis to keep the flyaways in check! If you want to rock textured styles, twistouts or braidouts are a good way to blend the old and new textures. Style it when wet (twist, flat-twist, braid, cornroll, etc), then undo when dry for great texture. You could also set the ends of the braids/twists on small rollers/rods, instead of roller setting your entire head. Good luck!

      Cute headbands!! I was going to say the same as Moni. You should try to avoid heat as much as possible to avoid heat damage. You could also do a wet set on rollers old school style. Heat is not your friend while transitioning. Take it from me. Had to cut off inches due to breakage from heat.
