Cute Hairstyles with Headbands

If you don’t have at least half a dozen headbands, you need to get to your nearest accessory store right away, especially with summer pretty much here. Headbands don’t just look great, they are perfect for those bad hair days. If your hair is fly-away or flat – tie it up into a messy bun and add a headscarf or headband to keep those loose hairs in place or disguise flat roots.
