Dirty hair? Bedhead? Running late (like me always)? Just too lazy to do a damn thing with your lovely lady locks?
Okay, so that’s a model wearing (what is most likely) a diamond headband, but this look is certainly easy for us commoners to achieve. Blast your hair with texturizing spray or dry shampoo (if you need it), tease the crown, pull it up in a messy bun, top it off with a headband, and VOILA! A cute, casual look.
But there’s just one risk you have to consider with this simple ‘do: The slippery headband factor. Luckily, I have found the perfect no-slip headbands, courtesy of Atlanta jewelry/accessory designer Jen Boaz. I asked Jen her secret for this coif creation and she said it’s “all in her head.” I see what you did there, gurl.
I like them so much, I double them up. (The verdict is still out on whether it actually looks good.)
They’re cute, they’re inexpensive ($16-$18), and they stay put. But more importantly, we’re giving them away! For the chance to win one of FIVE headbands (of your choice):
1. Like Witty + Pretty on Facebook.
2. Like Jen Boaz Jewelry on Facebook.
3. Leave a comment on this entry stating a time when you needed a quick, cute hair fix (last-minute date, woke up late for work, gym sesh when you know you’ll see your crush, etc.). The winners will be picked at random by 5 p.m. Friday.
And for one lucky winner, Jen may even throw in a pair of earrings (like these lightweight gems I wear on the reg).
Just (up)do it.
