A headband is a dual-purpose accessory. It is mainly used for the practical purpose of keeping your hair away from your face. Nowadays, this hair ornament is worn to accentuate a person's style. while at the same time, it doesn't compromise the convenience it serves. Headbands can be worn while training at the gym, while doing household chores and running errands, studying and while washing your face. According to Johnny Lavoy, a consulting hair expert for L'Oreal Paris, headbands have even become the mainstream on runways and red carpets.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Fasten it. The most handy and sensible way for your headband to stay put is by fastening it with a hair clip. As stated by Chris McMillan, a noted celebrity stylist, "You can anchor the headband with a hair clip behind each ear." This will secure the band in place.

  2. 2

    Style it. The way you style your hair is also dependent on how your headband would stay in place. By placing fringe near the forehead, it will keep the headband from slipping in front of your face. If the headband slips from the back, then you can sport a ponytail to steady the grip of the hair accessory.

  3. 3

    Stick it. If your headband keeps slipping off, a last minute quick fix can be done. Take hairspray or hair gel and set it where you will be placing the band. These hair products would ensure that your hairband will stay in place.

  4. 4

    Attach it. If all else fails and your headband just helplessly falls off every time you wear it, you can attach a small hair comb in each end of the band. These small combs can be purchased at your local grocery or beauty supply store, glue these accessories onto the trimmings of the band and you have your customised non-slip-headband.
