Haute Headbands

Headbands are my favorite accessory, hands down! I don't know what it is, but I just feel finished when I go all Blair Waldorf. Thanks in large part to the sassy Gossip Girl star, this accessory is an easy-to-find, and just plain easy, trend.

I scoured Etsy for some of the best designs, and perhaps even inspiration for a do-it-yourself project! Craft stores like Joann Fabrics and Michaels have added hair accessory sections for some easy DIY creations. Another idea is picking up a cheap base headband from Target or a dollar store and adding your own special touches!

Here are some of my favorites!

Nicole Ritchie rocks a sexy 60s inspired 'do by adding a scarf.
A flapper-esqe black bow design from ohmama's Etsy shop.

Bridal or just beautiful with a vintage feel from judithlaurendesign's Etsy shop.

Cutesy hearts to bring out your inner child from KristynAnn77's Etsy shop.

A flash of florescent from twolittlewren's Etsy shop.

A sophisticated starburst fit for a queen from thecrystalrose's Etsy shop.

Simple and pretty in pink from CastleMemories' Etsy shop.

This selection is representative of all price ranges, and a I chose to feature some Etsy because I love handmade items. I have had great luck finding adorable headbands at Forever21 and Target as well. My daughters have been begging me to make them some feathery hair goods, and I hope to make some fun things for myself as well!
