Hippy headband trend

Whether it’s in style this year or the next, I’m an avid fan of the hippy headband (you’ve probably figured that out from my photos). Most of the models on the freepeople website are styled with some headband, and countless celebs like Nicole Richie, Mischa Barton & Taylor Swift have been sporting this bohemian trend.

It may look gorgeous on the models and celebs but translating this look in real life is rather difficult! The last time I attempted it one summer, my boss said I reminded him of Pocahontas and the guy serving me in Starbucks had this almighty grin on his face. Which is why I keep this look for a day at the beach or random photo-shoots.

Where can you buy hippy headbands? – I’ve mentioned a website called Etsy in a previous post, here you’ll find a variety of sellers that make unique headbands, my favourites are listed below:

Lulu headband (by HeadCaseByG)

The lady that made this , shop HeadCasebyG ,  describes it as ‘a two-tiered headband adorned with a scattering of simple white blossoms. Perfect for an outdoor wedding, party or even a casual day around town…I wear mine with jeans and a tank all the time! Guaranteed to make you feel pretty!’

Wire Crown (by Whichgoose)

This Beatrix wire crown with creamy white flowers  ($45 but ships to the UK) would be perfect for a bride or bridesmaid. I’ve purchased from Whichgoose and had a customed made daisy crown which was gorgeous.
