Ever since I started getting into Gossip Girl years ago when it first started (it's about time they put that poor show out of its misery) headbands became one of my go-to items.
I'm not one to fuss with or spend a lot of time on my hair, and I found that when my hair just wasn't cooperating - whether my roots needed touching up or it was looking flat - a headband always came to my rescue. Now, you can do the Season 1 Blair Waldorf thing and opt for bold and bedazzled pieces but I tend to always gravitate towards black textured headbands. My favourite places to get them are Forever21, ASOS and JCrew.
Why black? Black blends in with my dark hair yet a with cool texture like sequins, leather, croc embossed, etc.
Here's the natural look I wore with the help of a gorgeous new lipstick by Revlon (in their Super Lustrous line) called Pink Pearl. It's a brown/pink neutral lip colour with a hint of a pearly sheen and it glides on effortlessly.
This is the type of look that I wear almost daily for work. I work in an office environment so I can't exactly stroll in there with a neon coral lip no matter how tempting that may be sometimes haha.
On to the most important thing -
