11 of the best headbands for dressing up grown-out lockdown hair

As it looks like we’re going to be in lockdown for a little while longer, we’re doing all that we can to hide our untamed manes and outgrown roots. Like the rest of the nation, we’re dying to get back to our hairdressers, but until they’re up and running again, we’re having to make do and improvise for those morning meeting video calls.

The SS20 fashion shows showed us the headband trend is sticking around so we’re embracing it and taking inspiration from the likes of Paul & Joe and Ulla Johnson. And with so many different colours, patterns and sizes on offer, there’s a bit of something for everyone, however minimal or eclectic your personal style may be.
