    Nicole Kidman turns her simple chignon hairstyle into a glamorous up-do thanks to the help of the sparkly hair pin. You can get a look like this by styling hair into a loose up-do of any style and then adding a hair pin with sparkle like the ones found at Banana Republic.

    Hair Headbands

    Glitzy hair headbands are not a new fashion trend, but one that has stood the test of time. We’ve seen glitzy hair headbands on celebrities and in fashion magazines for quite some time now, so it looks like this hair accessory is here to stay. This hair accessory is easy to find at most retailers now and works well with all different types of hair textures and lengths.

    Sparkly hair barrette’s like the one work well with most hairstyles. One of my favorite looks to wear with a hair accessory like this is retro curls. Retro curls like the pin curls of the 40’s and 50’s look beautiful with a deep side part and a sparkly hair barrette on one side. Not sure how to do retro curls on your own hair? Watch this easy how-to video:

    Wear sparkly hair headbands and other glitzy hair accessories any time. I’d suggest the sparkly hair headbands for day and other accessories like the barrette’s and hair pins for special occasions. For more great accessory ideas check out our Pinterest Accessorize your Hairdo Board.

    Homecoming Hairstyles With Headbands

    Homecoming hairstyles with headbands are easy!

    Hoorah!! It’s “Homecoming” season again!  It’s the traditional time of year when colleges, universities and high schools across the U.S.A. celebrate the coming home of alumni and other former students.  Celebrations most often include a football game on the schools home field, a parade featuring the schools marching band and other sports teams, the crowning of the king and queen and the forever popular and long remembered homecoming dance.

    Of course, there are about as many homecoming hair style options to show you as there are dresses you can choose from, so today let’s focus on easy, casual, hairstyles with headbands. The beauty of using a headband to make a unique homecoming hairdo is that headbands are readily accessible, reasonably priced, easy to make cute hair styles with and there are a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from. First choose your dress and that will dictate how casual or formal your hair should be.

    Homecoming hairdos are generally not as formal as prom or wedding hairstyles, but it’s a personal choice. The more casual look of homecoming goes hand in hand with the theme of this festive outdoorsy celebration.  Of course you’ll have pictures to look at to commemorate the big event for years to come, so it’s a good idea to make your look authentically you and of course . . . fabulous!

    Homecoming Hairstyles this season include the hot feather hair trend we’ve been reporting on of late! So many feathers, so many different styles . . . what’s a woman to choose??
