Back-to-School Essentials: Headbands

Forget about protractors, Trapper Keepers and loose-leaf paper: This fall's must-have back-to-school essential is the headband. Take a cue from TV's most stylish students (of course, I'm talking about the cast of Gossip Girl) and use your headband to solve real-life beauty dilemmas. Tame growing-out bangs, disguise bed-head, and dress up running-late-for-class 'dos with this fun hair accessory that costs close to nothing. Class dismissed.

Trapper Keepers! Blast from the past!

The zipper headband caught my eye immediately ... my mom is sending me a ton of zippers for rosette making, so perhaps I'll cook one up for myself!

Headbands have always, always been one of my favorite accessories! I'm so glad they're back "in." Not that I ever stopped wearing them ... :-) Love the post!

Head bands are awesome!! I'm not sure if I'd wear the oversized bow ones, they seem a little too kiddyish for work, but maybe ok for the weekend!

I just recently cut my hair so it's super short. I'm wondering how it will look with a headband. Maybe I won't look so boyish...ha.
