This is a bold tip from one of our favorite sites: Behind the Chair (www.behindthechair.com). “Take a cue from red carpet cuties like Elizabeth Banks and January Jones and join the band? Each of these stars accessorized sleek chignons with headbands recently, and the result was lively and fresh. Banks chose a sleek sparkly number, which was ideal for the über-formal Academy Awards, while Jones opted for a thick, black satin band to add panache to her LBD at the Golden Globes. Regardless of which style your bridesmaids choose, be sure to have her tuck a tiny can of hairspray into her bag to control those pesky flyaways, especially around the hairline, and don’t forget to take full advantage of your flat iron to keep strands sleek and polished.”
We have also seen the same trend in a more casual “day look” with a slim white band. The trick is to make sure the width of the headband isn’t too big, and to keep the band close to your hairline. Pull the rest of your hair into a perky ponytail, chignon or messy bun.
