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!
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.
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?
