Headbands for Fun & Unique Looks

When we think about headbands, often we associate it with an accessory for kids or like an item for the Upper East Side (anyone having Gossip Girl flashbacks right now?). However, headbands are super fashionable and if worn the right way, you can definitely create a unique look for yourself.

Here are some ideas to include headbands in your own personal style for some fun and unique looks:

Thin headbands

If you want to go for something subtle, a thin headband might be something for you. They come in all sorts of colors and you can literally wear them with any hairstyle you can imagine. Wearing your hair down, a ponytail, a top knot, braids…. The thin hairband can be a great addition to these looks to make it more unique. Especially if you have frizzy hair this might be a great solution to keep the hair out of your face and away from your forehead on humid days.


This style is very fashionable right now and you can spot many influencers rocking them all over social media. These come in a huge variety of colors and prints, so it is all about how you combine them with the rest of your outfit. The safest way to go if you want to go for a headband with a print is to wear a rather plain outfit and try to avoid prints in the top part of your outfit.

Flower headbands

If you want a somewhat more bohemian look, the flower headband is the way to go. They became super popular thanks to festivals but can definitely be worn in a day-to-day setting as well to create unique looks.

Knitted headbands

If you are looking for something to keep you warm as well on a cold, winter day, knitted headbands might be for you! They are the perfect item to style your winter look and keep your ears warm and cozy! Knitted headbands come in lots of colors so you will definitely be able to find one that matches your outfit.

Preppy headband

The preppy look is always a safe bet so the Gossip Girl headband look might actually be perfect for some occasions for you. Try a braided headband for a very cute look or an extra thick one if you want to go for an eyecatcher.

As you can see, these hair items are very versatile, and you will be able to create very unique looks with them. If you don´t want to go for a full-on look, start with a headscarf that you tie around your head and you can create very fun looks as well!
