A lot of you have asked me where to buy headbands -- I've never had trouble buying decorative and ostentatious headbands, but here are some places to get you started:
♡ Handmade headbands can be found on Etsy.com for reasonable prices. Some favorites that I found in only ten minutes are this button headband, this flower bouquet headband, and this feather headband!Luckily, the chic school girl look is in for fall -- so channel your favorite stylish school girl (Blair Waldorf) with a new array of headbands.
♡ If you're willing to splurge, Jennifer Behr makes gorgeous headbands -- yes, the exact ones that Blair Waldorf wears.
♡ Fellow reader Kate referred me to Andrea's Beau, which also sells decorative headbands for reasonable prices. She reports, "Not only are the headbands I've bought there amazingly beautiful, but they are also comfortable, which is something you can't always count on with headbands."
♡ Stop by your local Forever 21 and check out the amazing assortment of headbands -- some for under $3.00!
♡ I adore Nordstrom's selection of headbands. In fact, the department store is one of my first stops when I'm in search of new hair accessories.
♡ I'm a huge fan of venturing into Target when I need cheap (but not cheap-looking!) trendy accessories. They also have a decent selection of basic headbands.
♡ Asia. No, I'm kidding -- sort of. Some of my best headbands come from Asia, where bows and jewels perpetuated the market long before Gossip Girl aired.
♡ If you can't book a vacation to China, Korea, Taiwan, or Japan any time soon, you may be able to find handmade headbands imported from Asia at the small booths in your local mall.
♡ Make your own headbands! Buy some simple plain headbands from H&M and paste on anything you'd like.
