City Pulse

By Tallulah Dumonde

I fondly the Pepto-Bismol pink plastic headband I used to wear in 3rd grade. I also remember the devastation I felt when, in an attempt to make it smaller (to fit my small head, I suppose), it snapped into pieces. Lamentable. Well, my friends, headbands are back and they’re all grown up. From the understated to the outlandish, you can find all colours, prints, shapes and sizes. Pucci print or embellished by Swarovski, you’re going to love rockin’ this look.

I went in search of some of the hottest headband trends and found myself gaping, starry-eyed at the Henri Bendel’s hair accessory counter. They have amazing elasticized headbands with chain links ala Chanel, they have “sexy babushka” scarves that you just slip around your head, and they have amazing bandeau style headbands with exotic prints and outrageous colours.

My favourites, one a feather-covered wide headband and the other an intricately crystal beaded piece, were both more ‘traditional headbands’…meaning you just push them on. But I also tried one of the elasticized chain-link “call me CoCo” pieces because when the girl at the counter showed me how to wear it with a ponytail and big sunglasses, I suddenly saw my inner Jackie O.

Basically, whatever your style, hair length or occasion, Henri Bendel’s has a headband for you. Check out their counter on the main floor…all the way to the back, past cosmetics.
