Celebrities like Emma Chamberlain, Cardi B, Serena Williams and Jennifer Lawrence have all been seen sporting headbands in recent months. And they’ve all looked perfectly glamorous and chic, even donning them for the Met Gala.

People are already embracing this go-to hair accessory’s comeback. After all, headbands are an easy way to complete any look. Not to mention, they’re also a simple and quick way to style your hair; they work for all hair types from curly to stick-straight.

In a hurry and need to look polished? Grab a headband. Growing out your bangs? Same.

Created in all shapes and sizes from pencil-thin hard plastic to poufy padded satin fabric, there’s something for everyone to love with this revival.
