Street-style snapshots all point to one thing: Headbands and other hair accessories are back and better than ever. We’re not going to lie, we’ve been harboring this dream that the trend would resurface ever since we were kids, rocking a far less-cool version to school every day. But as an adult, we’ve realized these headbands are a total life-saver — our bad hair days have never looked better! With the help of this hair accessory, you can dress up the simplest ponytail or braid, or even leave your hair down unstyled and pushed back off of your face. From leopard-print styles to those beaded options you’ve seen every influencer wear at least once, we rounded up the best trendy headbands, ahead. 


Lele Sadoughi Lemon Beaded Woven Headband 

The headband you’ve been seeing everywhere is the Lele Sadoughi Lemon Beaded Woven Headband. We’re partial to the velvet option with yellow acrylic pearls because the pop of color makes the accessory truly standout.
