When we were kids headbands were plastic arcs that dug into our head while keeping our disheveled hair out of our face during a game of tag. These days they are still used for the purpose of keeping hair back, but they are also used to accessorize our hair and overall style. Plastic headbands are still around, but people have gotten creative with the concept of the headband. The styles they are used with varies, too - updos, braids, ponytails, and free-flowing hair.
We dare you to grab a ribbon, a scrap of fabric, double up, wind it around, use your hair, or grab the plastic one from your youth - whatever you do, don't be afraid to experiment and know that a headband isn't simply a plastic piece of functionality.
Here are a few inspiration headband styles to get you started.
