There is no getting around the fact that headbands are IN, in a big way. And, in fact, you shouldn’t get around it. They are one of the most useful bits of clothing ever invented. They keep hair out of your face while dressing up a dull ‘do and giving you one more place to put something shiny.
The problem is, we live in the day of the Hipster Headband. So, how to take advantage of the trend without ending up on Look at That Fucking Hipster? Follow these three easy steps:
- Choose a headband that fits your head snugly, but comfortably. If after thirty or forty minutes of wear, you have lost feeling in your scalp, TAKE OFF THE HEADBAND. Oxygen should be reaching your brain.
- Unless you are a attaching a mirror to your head prior to exploratory surgery, sweating to the oldies, or Janis Joplin, orient the headband to follow the natural hairline given to you by God.
- Make sure that your hair is lying smoothly beneath the headband. If your head in any way resembles Humpty Dumpty wearing a waist cincher, you’re doing it wrong.
