Blair Waldorf Approved.

Happy Hump Day!

Am I the only one who thinks this week is dragging? I thought yesterday was Thursday! I think it is a combination of the cold weather, and lack of sunshine. But it is going to be 50 degrees over the weekend, and than 19 degrees on Monday…..oh my goodness we are going to FREEZE! haha. This just gets us one step closer to summer, but than we will complain that it is too hot! However, NYC really is hot and steamy in the summer, and not the sunny beach kinda hot, more like the standing behind the back of a bus kinda hot. So Monday will consist of bundling up, like our moms would do when we had a snow day and we could barely move to play outside. But hey, we were WARM.

Speaking of when we were little, I remember when I was a little girl, my mom would always put bows and headbands in my hair. All kinds of headbands - glittery, leather, colorful, floral, you name it we had that style. I loved wearing them, and I was sad they went outta style when I got older. That was until Gossip Girl came on the scene, and Blair was always seen wearing them, and boom, they made a comeback. Well, I can now say that they’ve made a comeback yet again, and I will be sharing not only some of my favorite headbands, but how to style them as well.

5 Must Have Headbands and How To Style Them:

  1. Gold Leaf Headband - From work to play, this headband can dress up an outfit. I wear mine to work, as it really ties the whole look together into a polished fashion.

How To Style:

  1. Brush out hair, leaving the curls to fall natural

  2. Flip over head and spray hairspray underneath

  3. Flip head and tease hair

  4. Place headband behind the ears, and allow hair to be in front and in back of headband

  5. Spay again

2. Velvet Headband - Brunch with the girls? Date night, or family gathering? Velvet headbands always have a very classic look, and I always wore them growing up, and still do on special occasions. They polish off any look, and they come in the perfect color palette - black, burgundy, green, mustard, and navy.

How To Style:

  1. Curl hair in either hot rollers or curling iron

  2. Brush out curls and spray

  3. Put in headband and run brush through one last time

  4. Spray again

3. Chiffon Headband - They are the perfect casual Friday accessory. By Friday we are fed up doing our hair, and we just want simple and easy. No muss, no fuss. They also come in bright colors like hot pink, bright blue, and yellow.

How To Style:

  1. Brush out hair, and style in either ponytail or low bun

  2. Use hair tie that matches hair color

  3. Put in headband

  4. Spray again

4. Striped Wrap Headband - Running errands, afternoon movie, or just chilling with the family? This headband makes for the perfect denim companion. I love wearing them with jeans and a tee, or a sweatshirt and leggings. Instead of wearing a baseball cap, which I always wear, this just makes for a more polished look. They come in a wide variety of colors and patterns.

How To Style:

  1. Comb through hair with brush and let it lay natural or put in low bun

  2. Place headband

  3. Spray
