Yes, you read the title correctly. Hairbands, not to be confused with headbands, but in some cases they are the same but interchangeable.
Anyone that knows me really well, knows that I enjoy knitting. The number one thing I love to knit are scarves but a close second and third are hates and headbands. A bright colored and handmade headband is a great accessory and fashion statement.
Hairbands, or headbands if you want to call them that, come in various different forms. It can be knitted, made form cotton, made from hard plastic, metal, elastic, etc. It can be a simple piece of plastic in a "u" shape to hold the hair back, or it can be embellished with a certain design or pattern.
The type of hairband that is really popular these days are the hairbands with giant bows on top. When worn, it makes the wearer look like she has giant rabbit ears on her head. The bow can also turn a very dressy look into a dressy-casual look. The giant bow hairband is a great statement piece and helps bring out an innocent charm to the wearer.
I enjoy knitting headbands and hairbands because it is a simple hair accessory that can easily help make an outfit stand out. Plus, i greatly enjoy being able to be my own walking billboard with my new designs. :p I also, personally, like wearing them because it is a simply way to brush your hair back if you don't feel like styling it and you can keep one in your purse or even in your glove box for easy access.
Until next time!
