Headbands, also know as hair bands are possibly the only hair accessory that has never gone out of fashion. Irrespective of gender or age, headbands have been popular throughout the history of fashion – only the styles have evolved. From the simple bandana or ribbon ties to the elaborate tiara-like statement pieces, the humble headband has come a long way to grab attention everywhere – including our glamorous Bollywood. Let’s take a look at 3 styles inspired by our divas and get ready to splurge on headbands.
Remember Kajol’s tom-boyish clothes and short hair in ‘KuchKuchHotahai’? You could not have possibly forgotten her monochrome headbands either. But these practical cloth bands are not just a fad that popped up in the 90s. Look back to the 60s and 70s and you will see our yesteryear divas sporting this look too. Much recently, Katrina carried off this look well in ‘AjabPremkiGazabKahani’.
These simple bands come in a variety of vibrant colours and patterns. Team it up with a casual t-shirt and denim or shorts. You can also use bandanas or scarves to get this look. Take a look at the retro styles from 70s Bollywood and team up bright colours for that peppy look.
