As a member of team curly, there are certain hair accessories we have to rock our natural hairstyles. One of these accessories is a headband or tiara. You simply can't call yourself a bona fide curly without at least one.
After purchasing your tenth headband or tiara, it will occur to you that doing the “same old same old” is boring, but you still have to at least make an attempt to wear them and put your money to good use.
We're here to help you get the most out of the accessories you already have and be the natural diva you were meant to be. Oh, and in the meantime, save you some cash!
Wavy (Type 2)
When it comes to natural hairstyles, more is always better. Why choose just one headband when you can wear several? To create this look, get one cloth headband and a second, thinner, stiffer one. Then, simply wear the wider one and place the thinner one on top.
Here are some tips for getting the most out of this look:
- Color blocking with two colors on the opposite end of the color wheel, like yellow with purple or green with red.
- Mixing and matching patterns, like polka dots with stripes or florals with a more modern pattern.
- Using several thin headbands to hold your hair back instead of the usual, boring black headband.
The reason why this works is because natural hair has a lot of volume, and it's difficult to find accessories that really stand out and don’t get lost in fabulousness that is our hair. Using more than one headband creates more interest.
