Hair bands are amongst the oldest of hair accessories dating back to ancient civilisations such as the Egyptians, Greeks, Etruscans and Assyrians. Worn by both men and women, hair bands were a decorative way of securing early wigs and false hair pieces. Styles ranged from simple hair bands made of ribbon and kerchiefs, through to elaborate jewelled creations. They have enjoyed popularity right through the ages up to the present day. In more recent times, we have taken advantage of new materials like Lycra®, nylon and flexi plastics in creating hair bands, but the basic hair band design remains largely unchanged by time. Stretchy and flexible, hair bands are an easy- to-use, must-have hair accessory.

Hair bands are so flexible and stretchy; you can place them anywhere you want to achieve fabulous-looking hair. We stock a giddy mix of styles; practical hair bands great for playing sports, stylish bands for everyday wear, and statement-making hair bands adorned with flowers, bows and bling... Simply pop on a hair band, and in five seconds flat you too can look as on trend as your favourite celebrity!

For hippy hair band cool, try wearing a plaited, braided or pearl hair band straight across your forehead. For a real style statement, dare to wear two decorated hair bands at once.


Headbands
(also known as alice bands) are closely related to their stretchy and flexible friend the hair band, and date back as far as them historically. The type of headbands that Cleopatra would have worn were made of precious metals and gems, and afforded by only the very wealthiest of people...happily times have changed! Usually made of harder materials than hair bands, such as rigid plastic or metal, headbands are horseshoe-shaped hair accessories that are worn to keep hair stylishly away from the face. Super easy to use, headbands suit any hair type and almost any hair length and make a great addition to your hair accessory collection!

Headbands come in a variety of styles and sizes, with a variety of different colours and finishes. Choose from skinny plastic headbands in classic black (great for the office, school or gym) through to wide fabric covered tartan, bright bow or floral designs (perfect to match with more casual outfits). We also have a number of crystal headbands for those special occasions!

For a really glamorous addition to an up-do, such as a French pleat, try adding a crystal headband as a finishing touch.
