Earmuffs and headbands for warmth in winter
If you tend to feel the cold, there's nothing cosier than earmuffs and headbands! For the perfect winter style, look for a pair of oversized earmuffs. They should have a fluffy or faux-fur exterior, and they'll make you feel like you've got a pair of pompoms on your ears! Remember to take them off whenever you go indoors, though. Headbands are more versatile. Choose a rigid, Alice band style if you're just looking to keep your hair off your face; if you're looking for warmth, too, then a fabric headband is your best choice. You'll be able to wear this both inside and outdoors, and it's a great way of keeping bad hair days at bay when there's a strong wind.
Headbands for women in sports
A sweatband is ideal for runners, hikers, or gym-goers. One of the main reasons to go for a sweatband is if your hair keeps getting in your eyes. They're ideal if you've got a fringe, or if your hair is too long to be practical but too short to scrape back into a ponytail. If you're doing some serious exercise, you might want to add a couple of clips or bobby pins to hold your headband in place. On chilly days, make sure your sports headband sits over the tops of your ears. This way, it does double duty: Not only will it keep your hair out of the way, but it will also help you stay nice and warm while you're exercising.
How to look cool with earmuffs and headbands
To rock a pair of earmuffs, you'll want to go for the full-on winter look. That means a thick coat, a scarf, and a pair of gloves. You can keep it cute by going for a set of matching accessories. For example, you might mix a classic black coat with pale pink earmuffs, scarf and gloves for sweet winter style. Mittens instead of gloves are even more of a classic look! When wearing a headband, you might want to add a pair of earrings for a statement look. Just take care: If you have a bold headband, then big earrings will look like too much, so keep them toned down. For winter cool, wear a headband or earmuffs and pull your hair back into a high ponytail. In summer, try a light, scarf-style headband over hair that's left down.
