Trend Alert: Oversized Headbands are Haute AND Hot for Fall

The simplest and chicest style for second day hair.

After seeing the oversized headband trend hit the Paris runway this season for fashion week, we are officially excited to rock this look all season long! This headband style is normally associated with sporty looks and has more of an athleisure vibe. The look is perfect for those who want to add some drama to their look. An oversized headband will create space between your face and your hairstyle, so be ready for a bold look. What’s great about this style is that all hair types can rock it and embrace their cut and texture. We’ve got inspo for how to style this trend and products to use to keep your hair on point while you sport your look!

Oversized Headbands are Perfect for Second-Day Hair

This style is particularly awesome for second-day hair. Why, you ask? Because it covers the start of your roots, where oil is most apparent. It also provides volume by pushing your hair back and creating body. For this look, it’s important to make sure that the back of the headband is placed about half an inch over your hairline. You want to put some of the headband over your hairline to conceal where your hair begins and to create some volume. If you are doing this on straight hair, we recommend giving yourself a center part so that your hair is even on their side of the headband.

Naturally Curly

Oversized headbands look incredible with naturally curly hair! The headband helps to give some of the curls more shape and makes the style bold and retro. For this look to be extra sharp, it’s important to prep your curls so they’re extra bouncy. Go in with some TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel for a moveable hold so that your curls stay voluminous throughout the day. Finish with a spritz of Bed Head by TRESemmé Flawless Curls Hair Spray to tame unwanted frizz.

Layered or with Bangs

If you have a layered hairstyle or bangs then you will love the oversized headband look to enhance your cut. Create an updo, either a low ponytail or bun would work best, and leave your front layers/bangs out. Place the headband over your look, including the front pieces. Make sure that your layers are separated, for a sexy and piece-y effect. Give this look a high shine finish and lots of hold with a spray of Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Hairspray.
