If there’s one thing for sure, it’s that jeweled headbands ruled the red carpet at the Oscars. Everyone from Ruth Negga, Salma Hayek, & Janelle Monae opted to wear a headpiece & they all looked fabulous. It’s the perfect way to add glitz & glam to your prom look, so we rounded up a bunch of headbands you can SHOP for, right now!
The 2017 Academy Awards were absolutely amazing and so many of our favorite celebrities showed up wearing gorgeous looks from head-to-toe. One trend that stood out the most was shockingly, headbands! It feels like forever since headbands have been a thing but Nick Stenson, Matrix/ULTA celebrity stylist, gave the thumbs up that this bold look is definitely in and you can even translate it to street style!
Nick said, “When using a headband, the first priority is still the hairstyle, not the headband itself. Headbands are accessories to a good style, and aren’t meant to replace one. Because of that, the headband trend works well for all hair types. Be sure to choose a width that’s appropriate to hair length and volume, and do choose a headband that fits snugly to the scalp. Style the hair first before placing the headband into the hair. Though it works with braids and smooth straight hair too, I love a drama of a center part with lots of texture. A thin, perfectly placed, jeweled headband can be such an elegant look!”
Janelle Monae, 31, opted to wear a Jennifer Behr headband covered in colored stones. Ruth Negga, 35, wore an Irene Neuwirth headband featuring responsibly sourced Gemfields Mozambican rubies. Salma Hayek, 50, rocked a Fred Leighton Jewels 19th Century diamond laurel leaf headband, French, c. 1880, silver on gold.
We loved all of their headbands and we are so excited to see this trend make a comeback during Prom season. What do you guys think of the trend? Will you try it?
