Sometimes I just don't wanna "do" my hair. Scratch that. I often don't want to "do' my hair. And, truly, this is quite lazy, as last summer I lopped off more than 8 inches of said hair. So, yes, even with my short hair, I look for easy peasy options to put back the locks. Thus, the headband a fair perfect solution.
It can be feminine - sparkly, flower laden, ribbon wrapped or more. It can be basic - stretchy elastic, tortoiseshell, or hard plastic. If you have some hair to mangle, you can wear it down or up, using the headband as a true accessory rather than a need to push back some hair.
I'm a fan of the headband...are you?
