Contrary to what you may think, the best headbands aren’t just the kind Blair Waldorf would have approved of. The hair accessories are no longer solely a symbol of preppy dressing and queen-bee-ruled adolescence—you can find them everywhere and on anyone. From runways to pixelated Zoom calls, city streets, and the heads of royals like Kate Middleton, the accessory adds instant finesse to any kind of look (WFH outfits included).
Apart from being style statements, headbands are an easy way to turn even the worst of hair days into really-not-so-bad ones. Whether your hair just isn’t cooperating or you woke up five minutes before your morning meeting, simply throw one on and watch the compliments roll in.
From knotted and padded styles to jewel-encrusted toppers, there’s a headband for every mood or outfit. To help you narrow it all down, we rounded up 33 of the best headbands to shop right now. Fair warning: With some of them coming in at as little as $6, you may be hard-pressed to buy just one.
