I love a pretty, feminine headband – nothing jazzes up an understated look better, IMO. But with oversized curly hair it can be hard to find one that fits, and if you find one that fits it can be hard to find a hair accessory that’s just the perfect size to stand out among your kinks and coils, while not being oversized and costumey.


That’s why I am smitten with L’Ange, the silver grey rosette headband by Boutique De Bandeaux. This Etsy store specializes in “handmade couture-inspired headbands for straight, wavy, curly, & kinky tresses.”

Their model is SO adorable – love her hair and that her personality comes out in her photos. And I’m loving Boutique de Bandeaux! Finally a pretty floral headband that I know will handle my hair with gorgeousness and grace!

L’Ange costs $19.

Hi I cut off all my relaxed ends on Feb. 28th and ordered some headbands from Gazzu on Etsy. They're thin stretchy headbands with ribbon and fabric covered buttons so just passing on a link. Also, somewhat unrelated, have you heard of Nic's Sticks from OPI? Have you tried them?

That model is my hair-spiration. She is awesome and she makes me want to buy some super-cute headbands. Thanks for turning me on to this site. I never go to Etsy (it's too overwhelming), so I appreciate you slogging through to bring us the good stuff.

That headband is super cute. I have a couple with flowers that I was nervous about wearing, but, it really looks cute.
