    Buns & Bands

    Traditionally, I part my locs down the middle, let them naturally flow and slap a headband on for weekend hippie hotness. That gets hairstyling stale after awhile and limits this accessory’s decorative potential.

    Today’s tip: Liven up your tresses with fussy high or low buns, then bejewel them with dazzling crowns for extra outdoor oomph.

    For a range of divine headbands for any occasion, jewelry store Icing is always my first equine editor’s pick.  My mint green stretch flower crown for $14.50 easily adjusts for the smallest to the tallest buns I attempt for work or play.
