That’s one adorable little fictional girl. But what if you’re over the age of 12, and would like to keep your hair out of your face? Myself, I often will use sunglasses as a headband, and wear them on my hair much of the day. But, SassySmart asked if it was possible to wear a headband if you’re over 30. I will say DEFINITELY YES.
You can’t do this:
Don’t even try the hippie headband around the forehead look. You can’t pull it off, unless you’re an actual dyed-in-the-wool hippie type. Which would make it unlikely that you’d be reading this blog anyway. 😉
You can do THIS:
I think the trick to not look like a little girl is to treat your headbands like jewelry. There should be something special about them. There should be eye-catching designs, colors, and styles.
Also, keep it soft. I’m loving the triple-strand headband with soft, wavy hair in a messy chignon.
Don’t slick your hair back in a severe ‘do with a headband. Wisps and baby hairs and curly bits are all good.
You can also take a big silk scarf and wrap it around your head in a vintage 70’s style. I would love a vintage Vera Bradley scarf folded wide running through thick hair.
Here are some of my favorite headbands with versatile style.
Another technique is to make your own headband with a braid. I actually do a reverse french braid to hold my hair out of my face on casual days.
Hopefully this gives you a few ideas!
