A cozy, knitted headband is probably one of my favorite accessories because it’s versatile, looks cute, and keeps my ears and head warm without sacrificing my hairstyle. It’s not a difficult accessory to wear; usually you can just whack it on! If you’re going out late tonight, it will be great for keeping you toasty, but you should be a little more thoughtful with your look. I’ve pulled together a few tips and tricks on how to rock this great piece tonight, and all winter long. Click through to the notes for details. –– Michelle Rotbart

Short Hair

A knit headband will look great if you’re wearing your hair down, give it a bit of a tousle with a combination of hair creme and shine luxe oil.

Long Hair

For long, wavy or even thick hair, the headband will look super cute if it’s placed at the top of the head like a crown. Spray in some wave mist to accentuate waves or opt to rock a side braid or pony.

Updo

If you wan to rock New Year’s Eve party hair but still want to keep your ears warm, go for a loose and messy updo with a knit headband in between. Pulse in refinish and throw your hair up, leaving the fallen tendrils out and top it off with your headband.
