Accessories – we just love them, and this winter it's all about the sophisticated hair band. Far from being reserved for little girls, these super-chic Alice bands have come into their own and graduated to grown-up gear.
Upgrade your style in seconds
Did you know they were called 'Alice bands' after the publication of Lewis Carroll's Alice Adventures in Wonderland in 1865. Alice and her ribbon became a fashion icon, and now we've seen Alice bands all over the runway this Fall.
The hair band is the easiest way to up the ante of an everyday hairstyle, framing your face and injecting a bit of effortless style in seconds. Traditionally associated with a good girl look, today, those classic horseshoe shaped bands can come in any manner of ways, fabrics and styles – flexible, plastic, metallic or even elastic.
For the boho chick
Like our ethereal princess above, a bejewelled, metallic head band can give any look an injection of easy-breezy glamour, for the ultimate boho-chic look. Style hair in to loose, low ponytail and don't worry about leaving a few fly-aways at the front to frame your face and relax the look. Hold in place with L'Oréal Professionel's Elnett hairspray and rock your look morning, noon and night!
For the preppy girl
A no-brainer for the sloane's amongst us, a velvet hair band will give your look all that you desire. Pair with leaving your hair down in a sleek, side parting. Just remember you'll need glossy, shiny, healthy hair to pull it off. Adopt MYTHIC OIL Crème Universelle; a detangling pre-shampoo and blow-dry cream that provides 96-hour volume control. Extra nourishing thanks to its argan and almond oil formula, it's ideal for long-term hair nutrition and smoothness. Alice would approve.
For the fashionista
Alice bands have really upped the ante on the runways this fall, so if you're at the cutting-edge of fashion and hair trends, be sure to don your favorite band. Our suggestion? We like a chunky, block color bank paired with a simple outfit for a really on-trend look.
Forget the days when Alice bands were reserved for practical use, keeping your hair out of your face as a child, and get to grips with this grown up, chic look!
