I like to wear headbands to add style and color to my wardrobe, but more often, a headband is a lifesaver on bad hair days. See the 3 ways I wear headbands while avoiding a tension headache and damaging my edges. These looks are fun to create with your headbands that are pretty, but have unusual material that you don't want against your hairline.
Headbands can make styling natural hair quick and easy. They work well on all hair types and lengths. I like to wear headbands to add style and color to my wardrobe, but more often, a headband can be a lifesaver on bad hair days. There are pros and cons to wearing headbands. While I adore the style a headband can add, I am annoyed by the headache that comes along with wearing one in it's typical fashion as pictured below. These looks are fun to create with your headbands that are pretty, but have unusual material that you don't want against your hairline.
In this post I'm showing you three ways to wear your headband. These options avoid contact with your hairline to avoid tension headache, so common with headbands and prevent hair loss around your edges.
Headbands come in many different fabrics and finishes. The designs available today are soooo cute! I love the three I'm modeling here because of their unusual fabrics, but I'm not crazy about putting metal, jute, or cotton against my hairline. I styled these headbands in low tension styles so I could still wear them and avoid damage. Take a look.

I like this option because my hair is still down, but off my face and out of my way. To create this look, I put the band around my head as I normally would, then slid it back off my head. I secured it on each side with closed hairpins for a half up/half down look.
This metal rose gold band is a beauty. Here I pinned it loosely around my bun with open hair pins.
These looks are very fun to create with your headbands that are pretty, but have unusual material that you don't want against your hairline. I hope these inspire you to change up styling your headband, especially if you're like me and get a headache within minutes of wearing it or you struggle with thinning edges as a result of wearing headbands. Try them out and let me know what you think in the comments below. Also drop any questions below.
