Celebrities from Oprah to Nicole Richie have made headbands the hottest hair accessory and an absolute must-have season after season, and they show no signs of slowing down! These five headbands will perform double duty by keeping your hair off your face and adding some color to your coiffure at the same time. Just remember, slim widths or wide, short hair or long, headbands are hip!

Double Strand HeadbandSuper Slim Double Strand – Silk or satin, fabric or plastic, it’s available in hundreds of colors and one of the most popular styles around.

Woven HeadbandSlinky Sleek – Beloved by celebrities and socialites alike, a trendy, woven strap is the perfect combination of stretch and glamour, guaranteed to highlight any hairstyle. This one has a touch of metallic to add a tiny bit of shimmer, perfect for date night.

    I’ve struggled trying to find some simple, but elegant headbands. Something that would mesh well with dress slacks and jeans. My biggest problem is that most of the headbands I buy are either too plain looking or — over the top gaudy! I’ve been on a quest to find some that look classy enough to wear to a formal dinner — and also for a typical shopping day at the mall.

    I’d like to report that some great styles are really making a splash in the hair accessories market. I saw them at a high end salon near where I live and they were hot — had to buy one ….

    Anyway – hope this helps!

    Hi Steph,
    I’ve seen those double stranded headbands in Target and on France Luxe – I’d check there!

    The Soft & Silky Scarf and the pink satin elastic band are pretty and very stylish. You can mix and match it with any dress.
