How to Style the Y2K Headband Trend
For inspiration, we can look to Bella and Instagram IT-girl and founder of Djerf Avenue, Matilda Djerf, who is definitely one of the many names we can credit for the comeback of this trend.
To wear this style of headband, all you have to do is pull it over your head so it’s around your next one, pull all your hair under the headband, then gently pull it up forward, until it is in the front of your hair and behind your ears. Then simply clean up your parting and pull back our front hair strands for pretty tendrils or leave your hair pushed back.
As we know it, Bella recently had wispy bangs– so here she pulled them away from her face, for a cleaner, chic look. This is ideal if you have just had a fringe hairstyle and are fed up with it or want to change your look.
You can also replicate the Matilda look by pairing your headband with a chunky 90s blowout. And as mentioned, you can also style your headband with tendrils, or your curtain bangs framing your face, like this.
