Headbands are not just fashion items but also extremely useful accessories to keep the hair from falling on your face. They also give you that certain innocent schoolgirl look so they can be used in most situations for school wear, to casual wear and even office wear.  The history of headbands goes a long way back starting with the ancient Greece where women and men wore them for special events. Romans wore them too and they usually decorated them with precious stones.

Nowadays headbands are used for a lot of practical purposes, even in sports where players need to make sure that the hair stays out of their eyes and they have something that will absorb the sweat. They can also be used during colder wear, if they are knitted to protect the forehead and the ears from cold.

As fashion items headbands come in a great variety of options. You get simple headbands to more sophisticated crocheted and even some made from precious metals, often resembling crowns. They are a great way to experiment with your looks and changing your appearance without having to go through drastic modifications. Nowadays, even celebrities often use them as a way to create an elegant but simple hairstyle that goes well with everything. You can even wear them in those days just before dyeing your hair again to conceal those unaesthetic roots; also, they are a great way to feel comfortable while trying to grow your bangs since that can turn out to be an irritating experience.

No matter how you look at them, headbands are definitely interesting and comfortable to wear.
