The right headband can add a pop of color and youthfulness to an outfit. These versatile accessories work with all hair colors and types and are a chic way to pull the hair up and away from the face. Unfortunately, one main problem with wearing headbands is that they slide out of place and out of the hair. With a few simple tricks, however, you can keep any headband from slipping and secure it in place as long as you want.

Try a few tricks to keep your headband in place.

Step 1

Use bobby pins to hold softer headbands in place. The bobby pin can slide into your hair and over the headband to keep it secure.

Step 2

Attach a small hair comb to the sides of the headband on the underside of the band. Use jeweler's glue or craft glue to attach the combs, before you need to wear the headband, and it should stay in place perfectly.

Step 3

Add a little gel or firm-hold hairspray to your hair at the spot where the headband will sit on your head. This technique helps hold a soft or hard headband in place. This method, however, will cause your hair to stick slightly to the headband (this is how it stays in place), so don't use it if you will be removing the headband later and won't be able to touch up your hair.
