Hair accessories are BIG this season so come and take a look at our many pictures of hairstyles using hair accessories such as headbands and more. We also provide helpful information to go along with the photos.

Looking back at the 1970's, we can remember the days of hippies and flower children. Thin headbands were a popular hair accessory.

Hippie Girl with Headband

This woman has long straight medium brown hair that is parted off center and she is bang-less. This is typical of this decade when a no style was preferred. It was suppose to signify a minimalist attitude and no fluff or frills. The thin headband or forehead band kept the strands from falling into the face and also was a celebration of a Native American fashion trend that was common in the previous century. This headband is a macrame pattern with seed beads and a stretchy material makes it easy to fit over the head. What a fun look for summer or possibly for one who wants a costume from the decade of the 70's. I found a fun example here to check out.

Her bangs are brushed up and back and secured behind the black headband. This have given her a touch more height up here. The sides are left out and are pushed away from the face for a Bewitched 1960's type hairdo. Her tresses flip out at the shoulder for a retro look. The back is actually long and has big curls on the ends.
