String Thing

I’ve always been a big headband fan but recently I’ve been loving how much fun can be had by adding the right band. One of the biggest trends in hair, right now, is using stringy little headbands in very simple styles. I’ve chosen three vintage inspirations that I love and show how adding the right headband can turn your hair into a classic, easy to do, throwback look.

Hippie Bands

You can transform your simple ponytail or down-do into a whisper of the free-spirit style of the late 1960s by adding a stringy band around your head, over your hair.

You can choose bands with or add feathers, flowers and other adornments to help better capture the earthly nature of this look.

Vanessa Hudgens, Mary Kate Olsen, Michelle Williams, and Nicole Richie are just a few celebs who love wearing a bohemian band.

Flapper Style

Just like the ladies of the days of prohibition and suffrage, you can easily achieve a flapper-like look by adding a jazzy headband to your outfit.

Headbands with a simple shape but a bit more sparkle and pizazz are a great way to turn simple hair into an elegant style reminiscent of the 1920s.

Nicole Richie (again), Elizabeth Olsen, and Selma Hayek all know how to glamourize like a bootleggers gal.

Greek Chic

Let your inner Goddess shine by opting for a messy chic greek style. Even an unwashed-hair, stick-it-up-in-a-bun day can quickly become a chance to strut some spartan style.

A messy up-do, long flowing curls and everything in between can be given a little dose of historical fashion for an adorably easy to achieve summer style that’ll have others worshiping at your temple of style.

Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift and Selma Hayek (again) are great examples of achieving the perfect greek goddess hair.

I hope this post has inspired you to play around with headbands and/or some vintage inspired looks.

Thanks for reading! Love, GK
