Bands on the Head 

Since time immemorial, women have had an affair with hair accessories. Ones that have lasted throughout time are headbands. Some historians say that the Greeks and Romans wore ornamental bands over their heads for very festive occasions, or by victors at ancient games of sport. These ornamental bands were later upgraded with embellishments such as gold, silver and gold-plated metals. Then these later evolved to wreaths in the Middle Ages.  Read More.

Headbands

While wreaths are considered likely predecessors of today's headbands, some historians also believe that modern day headbands may have taken shape from scarves worn around the head. But disregarding how headbands evolved, one thing for certain is that headbands have been quite popular both throughout the ages and with all ages! Not only worn by women, headbands are also favored by girls of different ages and sometimes even by men. Headbands are extremely flexible. They started as glamour pieces reserved only for very important occasions, but headbands eventually became a staple fashion accessory.

Headbands come in a vast array of sizes, materials and styles. Because of this, they can easily be worn for special occasions and for everyday. Just like other fashion accessories, it is not uncommon for people to own several sets of headbands, as there are styles available specifically for casual wear and for formal wear. 

In general, headbands fall into two kinds of material: hard bands or soft bands. Hard bands are usually made of various types of plastics and metals, while soft bands are usually made of silks, satins, ribbons-- like thosed used for baby bows, cotton, and other stretchy materials. 

Throughout fashion history, headbands have come and gone. In recent years, headbands have earned a reputation of being too "prim and proper" and perhaps ill-fitting for the strong, independent, modern woman. So headbands faded into the background as women opted to experiment with new hair styles and new hair accessories. However, headbands seem to be making a comeback this year. With more and more women celebrating their femininity with less fear that it makes them appear weaker, head bands which were once thought of as too "girly" are hot trends among fashionistas once again.

Even Hollywood's trendsetters, like Nicole Richie, Leighton Meester, Jessica Alba and Paris Hilton, seem to have been smitten by headbands. As expected, girls of all ages have followed suit, ushering  the headband back as a fashion staple. In fact, headbands are also all the rage among parents, who love to prettify their baby girls with lovely soft headbands and a variety of baby hairbows. This especially helps the parents when friends mistake their babies for boys because of their wispy hair!

There's always something to adore about the pretty, dainty, chic quality of headbands. More than that, with this comeback, these headbands (along with many other hair accessories and hair clips) prove that they can truly stand the test of time.
