Headband hairstyles for Indian women
#1: Girl next door headband look
Girl Next Door. I know that term is overused, but it’s a definitely an ‘in’ style. It’s simple, sweet, cute and innocent looking. A flat cloth headband is perfect for the look. Pair this hairstyle up with a summery dress, skirt or capris to make it a fun summer look.
#2: Retro Bow headband Deepika style
If you’re going for an old retro look, put your hair up in an updo like Deepika Padukone’s hairstyle here(you can find plenty of them on Hairstyle Monkey) use a curling tong or curler to curl your bangs and add a plan or polka hair bow to the side. Complete with winged eyeliner! Your lips can be left nude or painted a deep red.
#3: Retro polka headband hairstyles
The size of these polka dots always make you think retro! Tie a small scarf with polka dots to one side of neatly ironed hair. You can frame your bangs any way you like. Pair them with hoop earrings and you’ll want to be singing to your favorite song from the 70s!
#4: Satin Sash a la Serena Van Der Woodsen
Gossip girl fans, I know you want to look like Serena! Who doesn’t? This one is easy as pie. Just grab a broad gold sash and tie it to perfectly blow dried and tousled hair. You can also match the sash colour to your outfit of the day.
#5: Simple updo with headband
For this look, create a small chignon bun at the nape of your neck. Part your bangs in the center and tease them a little. Add a thin and slender headband to finish the look. This one is a perfect hairstyle for evening occasions, fundraisers, gallery openings or any other social event. Be camera ready!
#6: Beaded triple headband
A triple headband is a cool kind of hair accessory. It can be worn with long and straight hair like Katrina Kaif or even with medium or short hair and whether you have bangs or not. Match it to your earrings!
#7: Bejeweled DIY headband
Next time you feel fidgety and bored, go to a local fancy store and buy yourself faux gems to make a royal bejeweled hair accessory. Wear it with a braid to one side, loose hair or a high bun. This kind of hair accessory is great for evening occasions as well as with Indian outfits like a plain colored lehenga or anarkali.

For a quick and simple 60s look that is also formal, blow dry your hair and buy a nice headband from the fancy store. You’ll look like Don Draper’s wife in no time!
#9: Braided faux headband
If you have the time on hand, you can create your own faux headband with your own hair. Braid the front in a regular braid and tease/flatten them with the back of a separating cob to widen them. Pin it under the rest of your hair. This is a lovely day time look for brunch or a beach-side party.
#10: Casual bandana style for road trips
When I travel or drive, especially long distances, I don’t want m hair all over my face, but some of you may like it. A folded bandana forms a cool look for a long drive or a jeans and t-shirt kind of day. The hair can be tied up in a messy way.
#11: Daisy headband
A pretty band of flowers is about the cutest thing you can do to your hair. Pick from daisies or roses or any other kind of flower hair accessory band. Wear this to the beach, beach parties, pool parties or just when playing tourist in a foreign country in the summer.
#12: Fancy headband for curly hair
Girls who fret about big and curly hair, fret no more. Carry it off with confidence with a nice and broad, colorful headband to tame your hair as well as add elegance. This look is good for curly hair of all lengths. Try a bright color to contrast with the duller/darker hair.
#13: Gibson tuck with headband
If you know how to do the Gibson Tuck – if you don’t, look it up on Hairstyle Monkey – add a lace or ribbon headband to it. Make sure you add the lace before you do the tuck so it gets hidden. This is a pretty and elegant day time look perfect for medium to long hair.
#14: Priyanka Chopra fashion crystal chain headpiece
This famous look of Priyanka’s from the hit movie Fashion is a must try at some point. As soon as you buy one of these crystal chain headpieces you will find they can make any loose hairstyle so much more glamorous. Get heads turning!

This large and loud bow is perfect for those girls looking to add volume to their faces and bodies. A large hair accessory does just that. A large hat is an option too. Wear this to formal events or if you’re going out for the night.
#16: Messy hair with muted headband
Wake up late this morning but need to get to office or a meeting? Don’t worry. Messy hair is all the rage. Just spray on some Beach Waves product and tousle your hair a bit before making a high, loose bun. Add a thin understated headband to hold hair off your face.
