While women originally started wearing headbands for practical purposes, think doing life in 90 degree heat, they quickly developed into a fashionable trend that women nowadays have down to a science.

Headbands aren’t for every woman you might say. That is, until you give them a chance. All you need is a bandana, some string, or any piece of material for that matter and you can fashion yourself a stylish headband.

While headbands are fun to try on occasion, they’re not something you would usually rock on a regular basis. For those of you looking for a new look, or perhaps interested in giving a headband a little hair time, then this list is definitely something you’ll want to bookmark.
