 A headband is a clothing accessory worn in the hair or around the forehead, usually to hold hair away from the face or eyes. Headbands generally consist of a loop of elastic material or a horseshoe-shaped piece of flexible plastic or metal. They come in assorted shapes and sizes and are used for both practical and fashion purposes

 Over time the wearing of headbands has changed from being worn to special occasions and important events to more of a fashionable accessory. There are many kinds of headbands such as, leathered, plastic, metal, fabric, toothed and novelty.

 The leather headbands are usually glued onto a harder plastic headband, or they are hand-stitched. Plastic headbands, which are most common, can be wavy, straight or angled and come in many colors.

 Metal can also be used to form and support leather headbands. Metal-only headbands may be plain or decorated, sometimes with precious jewels.

 Fabric headbands are comfortable because they do not dig into the head. They usually have an elastic band, so that the headband forms to the head.

 The toothed headbands have comb-like teeth that are connected to the top part of the headband. Their teeth ensure that the hair stays in place.

 Novelty headbands can be used for holidays and may have decorations attached such as bunny ears, reindeer ears, Santa Claus hats and others

Eternally fashionable, scarves make the most versatile accessory for women and men. The available variety of fabrics, shapes and sizes make the scarf ideal for all seasons and occasions.

Tying scarves is simpler than it seems, and various attractive scarf tying techniques are rather easy to learn. As a service to our customers, we have designed this step-by-step scarf tying guide, providing the most common and popular styles when wearing a scarf.

A lot of scarf tying styles use square scarves, though, in order to tie the square scarf into some highly attractive styles, there is often a need to fold one into an oblong shape as a starting point.

Wearing Scarves:
      Scarves can be worn in a variety of ways: as head coverings, shawls, accent pieces, belts, and even as garments. They are truly versatile and can add flair to a style, or be used as a subtle accent. They can be tied, pinned with a piece of jewelry, or secured with specially designed accents. Scarves can also be used as shawls at weddings, complimenting bridal dresses and jewelry such as wedding bands.
