On my quest for great headbands (thanks for the info clara) I have come across these picks from Essence Magazine. Some are pricey and some are very reasonable, but one thing is for sure, they are all very adorable. Headbands are a great way to style your hair for a protective updo and they make any hairstyle look "dressed up". You can also extend the life of any do by slipping on one and pinning up the back of your hair.
