Printed, beaded and sparkly headbands are back in fashion. Sonakshi Sinha, who recently flaunted a gold Amrapali headband at an awards function, said that headbands are a great way to add a little something to your hairstyle. Bollywood stylist and designer Pernia Qureshi said that floral headbands are nice options, but ensure the flower doesn't overpower your head and try to keep things somewhat proportionate so you don't look like you're about to topple over. Rod Anker, Creative Director of Monsoon Salons and Spa, said that different hairstyles updos, down hairstyles, side dos and half-up half down hairstyles -- all look great with a headband.

Anker also advised against using metal or rubber bands as they will cause too much friction on the hair and cause it to break or become weak at the point of securing it. The quality of the hairband can vary, however avoid the ones with a hair clip attached as they too will catch hair and cause breakage, he added. Those with longer hair can actually braid a section of hair on the side and use the braid as a headband.
Hair accessories are also part of Indian weddings where the bride often wears a mang tika or head gear to further enhance her hair. Clips and beads are other ways to enhance the beauty of one's hair. Tying a bandanna or a scarf on your head can suit a few people but make sure you don't end up looking like you are going to the gym. Tie a scarf around your ponytail to make it look stylish. If you can't take your pick, going for a black or muted colour headband is your safest bet on a regular day and a neon or floral headband works for a party look.
