Headbands are a great way to update your look for summer without breaking the bank. They can also take a day outfit and dress it up for night or vice versa. Always take care to find the right headband for your head, your hair and your features (ie: if you have a small head, a wide chunky headband might overpower your features). And if you are afraid of hurting your head with tight headbands, you’re in luck this season as stretchy elastic bands are all over the stores in every shape color and style.
