Trend on trial: The ATH editors take on headbands

Want to know how the All Things Hair team are wearing the latest trends? Read on to find out. 

Headbands have gone from a playground favourite to the must-have hair accessory overnight. Seen on all the FW19 runways, the new variations of the headband are bigger, bolder and far more luxe than we remember.

On the catwalks, headbands ranged from regal padded silk at Prada, dramatic princess tiaras at Dolce & Gabbana and ballet inspired at Dior. Always keen to take on a new trend, the All Things Hair editors show you how they’re updating their everyday styles with the It accessory that will be seen across all your social feeds by Spring.

Trend on trial: FW19 headbands

Blair Waldorf is my headband inspiration and no headband was ever too much for her. So, with that mindset I attempted to channel my inner Upper East Sider with this (let’s be honest, pretty over the top) embellished headband.”

“I’m not totally against how it looks but I do think I’d need a sleeker outfit to make this look more ‘fashion’ as I did feel a little (slash a lot) like a 5-year-old.”

Trend on trial: Woman with long ombre box braids with a headband wearing a black roll neck top and jeans.
90s lover.

“Finding a headband that actually works with box braids is quite difficult, but I made this checked one work for me and went for a ’90s vibe. Headbands like these are great for keeping your protective hairstyle off your face, in style. Would I wear one again? Yes, but with a Poetic Justice-style box braids ponytail!”

The perfect lazy girl hair accessory.

“If there’s a way to make my hair look more put together, with minimal effort, you can bet I’ll be the first to try it. I mean the idea of taking my hair from drab to fab with one simple placement of a headband was an easy yes from me. As my style is quite minimal (and I have really fine hair) I went for a simple knotted Alice headband to pimp up my wavy ponytail as opposed to a statement piece.”

“Am I a convert to the headband trend? Definitely. For an everyday look I’ll be wearing my new fave accessory with my hair loose and air-dried like Alexa Chung and for date night I’ll attempt to channel Kaia Gerber’s Givenchy look with a smooth and sleek low bun.”
