8 highstreet hairbands to beat the January shopping blues

Whether you need an accessories fix or just a fix for a bad hair day, these highstreet hairbands are a lifesaver


Everything goes against your hair in January. The weather, the frizz-inducing heating, the fact that payday and getting it done is a long, long while away — they all conspire to give us a full month of crap looking tresses.

But our recent obsession with hair accessories of every shape and size means that a bad hair day is no longer inevitable. The simple hairband, which can be jazzed up or toned down in any way you choose, is a Godsend for bad hair days. Simply pop it on and enjoy instant cool-girl effect. Way easier than the monthly conditioning treatment.

If you’re in the market for stocking up, look no further — here are some of our favourites available right now.
