Though some trends are better left untouched, the headband look is one you may want to check out.
Lindsay Wagner, editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, stopped by TODAY to showcase five unique headband trends that are simple to master.
Whether you want to enhance your personal style or want to simplify your daily routine, this trend has you covered.
Embellished Headband Trend
Adding an embellished headband to your look can upgrade a casual outfit instantly. Some styles, like the Kitsch x Justine Marjan Rhinestone Volume Headband, are totally embellished while others feature in delicate chains or classic pearls.
Either way, if you want to pull off this trend, the headband should be the focal point of your outfit, said Wagner. She recommends slicking your hair back and wearing the headband close to your hairline.
Padded Headband Trend
The padded headband is showing up everywhere from the red carpet to the streets, said Wagner who called this trend "super chic."
No matter which one you choose, this trend works well with multiple hair lengths and textures. For a polished look, Wagner recommends parting your hair down the middle and placing the headband further back on your head.
Knotted Headband Trend
The newest hair accessory on the block is the knotted headband. This style features a thick band with a knot at the top and is great for accentuating voluminous hair.
Wrap Headband Trend
The wrap headband (also known as the scarf headband) is a classic and practical accessory — and it looks great with casual outfits.
Some wrap headbands include an elastic strip to hold it in place while others tie at the nape of your neck for a foolproof fit.
Wagner also says you can wear one at the very front of your hairline for a more modern look.
Skinny Headband Trend
Celebrities like Julianne Hough love thin headbands, and it's a great way to get familiar with the trend or want something you can wear anywhere.
Skinny headbands work well with natural waves, ponytails or low buns. If you're itching to get a bit more creative, Wagner recommends wearing two at once or mixing colors for a whole new look.
We saw the scrunchie trend resurface in 2019, and it's here to stay in the new year.
One of the best parts about this accessory is that it's both trendy and practical. The stylish hair ties also come in multiple styles, including bold ones like this Kitsch X Justine Marjan Patent Scrunchie Set and sensible options like red velvet one from Lele Sadoughi.
A quick look at social media will also show you that scrunchies can be used as a wrist accessory as well.
