Styling Tips – A Hair Accessory for all Hair Lengths
BY CLARISSA MAUER
One benefit of having a pixie cut is that it’s simple to maintain. Allotting time to style my hair is not a factor during my morning routine as I always style it in the same way, which makes things easy. However, when seeking variety, options are limited.
Since this hairstyle has no “up-do” versus “wearing it down,” I turn to hair accessories, specifically headbands.
Headbands can help dress up a look or help keep it casual. They also look great on everyone: long hair, short hair, bangs, no bangs. Seriously, you can’t go wrong.
Since I’ve maintained my short hair for almost a decade, and since my primary go-to hair accessory is a headband, I’ve had a lot of time to discover where to shop for the chicest and comfiest ones!
Here’s my list! Coincidentally all 5 are NYC brands!
Fly By Night is a small shop with a heart for sustainability, no-waste, and all things handmade. Creator, Laura Harrington, started making these scrunchie-style headbands (she calls crowns!) from leftover fabric from her handmade blouses. My personal favorites are her leather and velvet ones! Oh so chic!
Loeffler Randall is one of my favorite shoe brands. I honestly believe you can never have too many pairs of their pleated heels. I’m starting to feel that way about their matching headbands, as well. Loeffler Randall always selects the prettiest prints, and how could you not want a matching shoe and headband set (and in my case, tote bag too)? Another perk is these headbands are very comfortable!
