I bought this double elasticated hairband when I was in Seoul in September 2009.  I love the design!  One of the bands is a single row of diamantés and the other band is in style of a Chanel link chain.  It’s so pretty but I’ve not actually worn it out before!!!  I know!!  I’m so bad!!!  I like to buy pretty things and never use them!!  Anyway, I was admiring it the other day and decided to play around and discovered 5 ways to wear a double elasticated hairband :-

1.  Normal hairband

Pulling back all my hair with a hairband is not my favourite look.  I am extremely self-conscious about my forehead because I have scars there from a car accident back in 1998.  I also hate my wrinkles!!!  I used to get Botox (because I used to do it at work and get it cheap at cost price in Scotland) but now that I’m in Australia, I have no idea how to get my hands on this magical wrinkle-free potion and I definitely don’t have enough money to get it done at a clinic.  ARGH!!!

2.  Hippy headband style

I see girls rocking this hippy look and they look HAWT!

Look at Michelle Phan – the No.1 YouTube make-up guru – she totally rocks the hippy headband!!!  (image taken from google)

On me, it just looks daft.  I think my head is too big to pull off this look!  I also need to have longer luscious wavy locks.

3.  Headband necklace style

I have never seen anyone with this look.  Have I created something unique?  Have I started a new trend?  Sadly, I think it’s more NOT than HOT!

4.  Necklace

It’s pretty cool to use it as a necklace with the right top or dress.  Dislike the diamantés catching and pulling my hair though – as can be seen in the photo.

5.  Bracelet

As a bracelet, the double elasticated hairband seems to work well.  I shall try and incorporate it into my outfits from now on.

Do you have a double elasticated hairband?  Did you like any of the suggestions?  Which is your favourite, if any?

    They mostly look great and very creative (it helps that the model is very pretty). I found number 3 to be especially entertaining x

    I love the look of these headbands. But for some reason, on short hair, it doesn’t seem to work!
