Default Headband Pictures

I decided to try and use a headband with my "new hair" - CG - and I've been having trouble with parts and short hair. Can you tell me what you think? And post your headband pictures!

I have a bit of frizz because I touched it too much.

Cute! I look rather silly in headbands so I only wear them when my hair is up in a ponytail, and then sometimes I'll stick on a big, chunky one just to cover up some of the flyaways and pieces that can't make it into the pony.

Thanks! I think mine looks a bit silly because I have short layers but I like it better than a part, a part makes my hair look droopy sometimes.

It looks great
I used to wear them, I don't know why I stopped wearing headbands.

It looks cute! I have to wear headbands in a silly sort of way which I can't explain. Most headbands don't fit the shape of my head so I don't look all that great in them.

That looks cute! I wear very thin (Goody ouchless like 1/4") or very thick (3") scarf headbands.

I want to buy some scarves, I do have thicker headbands but they are the ones you just slide on your head or the ones with little comb-teeth.

I think it looks cute. That is essentially how I wear mine in a headband, it's just that my hair tends to fall forward more.

I like the stretchy cloth types because my head is too big for those u-shaped things. I have an album full of them if you want to look.

I like the look of the skinny ones like sbb uses, but they tend to get lost in my head. I'd ike to try wide scarves to see how they work.

They look very pretty and I love your hair!

Do you put it on wet hair or dry? I put it on after my plop.

Thank you!

I always put them in dry, to a comfortable spot on my head. They really help keep hair out of my face. I wish it didn't fall forward so much.

I look really silly with headbands right now. Maybe when my hair gets longer but at the moment my hair swallows headbands no matter if they're wide or skinny.

I LOVED headbands when my hair was short.

Yep, I have a natural part that always pops through but it works with the headbands because the hair falls over onto the thinner side so everything evens out.

I don't know how you all manage to look so nice by pulling your hair back with a headband...that never seems to work for me! I always have to part my hair and leave some hair in front of the headband (defeating the purpose of keeping your hair out of your face..but fashion isn't exactly about being practical so there you have it).

First picture = thick headband, extremely dark...oops!
Second = I don't even know if you can tell I'm wearing a headband...it's some thin, magnetic, necklace-like sparkly one my grandma gave me.

My hair looks like yours where I have to arrange my hair around the headband.

The little sparkly one is cute.

I think it looks nice.
You're very pretty, you remind me a little of Leah Remini.
